Hi all! I just came across this forum and thought it might be a good place to get some help, and have people who understand what I am going through. I have a long standing issue with depression and anxiety. I was successful in treatments with a mental health therapist, and some medications (Amitriptyline ). I moved out of my parents house when I was 16, was able to wean off the drugs and stop my therapy. I was very happy, and healthy. I am now 23 years old and suffering horribly from the same thing, except it has been a lot worse this time. I have tried talking to my doctor about my anxiety/depression with not much luck .. he tells me to eliminate the stressors in my life .. but how can I do that when it is literally everything? I have been back to the mental health center, and got assessed. But they have a six month waiting list. While I do have health coverage .. it is not much help with a private therapist. I need help now, not six months from now. Any suggestions?
