So I've been dealing with MDD/atypical for 4 years. Started taking Lexapro finally a few months ago and it helped, but not so much anymore. At all. Never felt so awful. Gained 20 lbs in two months, avoiding people, wearing the same sweatpants everyday, crying all the time. My psych. pretty much fell off the face of the earth (going through a divorce I think) so I found a new one. I had an appt. last Wed. at 9 am (office opens at 9). By 9:30 I ask the recep. what's going on (I need to leave by 10 to take my son to therapy).... oh um the Psychiatrist isn't there yet. So I just reschedule for next week and leave. As I do, I see her pull into the parking lot in her freaking BMW and pull into her private heated garage (seriously). This week has been awful. Every night I don't want to go to bed because that means I have to wake up and live another day like this. I just want to some help and I feel like nobody can help me. Now I don't even want to go see that DR because seriously? Rude. Disrespectful. She's a mental health doctor and that's how she treats patients? Puke. Doesn't help that I have to see my parents in 3 weeks and am freaking out about it. My parents are very thin, weight conscious and um openly disapproving about my physical "health". Grrr.
Thanks for letting me vent.

I hope you can find some help soon.It took me a while and I'm on a few meds,but I do feel better.Have you tried a therapist instead of a psych?I find them to be very helpful.I see a social worker and a nurse who does my meds.I hope you feel better.
