Wrong diagnosis of depression.

For years I've had a depression diagnosis. And I feel this is correct. I saw the psychiatrist last week as I've recently changed meds. Have been on this new one for 3 weeks which isn't helping yet. But she said no meds seem to help me and as I have days that are ok ish when I see my bunny for example. She said I don't actually have depression. She really wanted to stop meds altogether. But I said no. I don't know what to do now. My care Co is beyond usless and says I'm inconsistent with everything and is pressuring me to go to college I'm 32 and do some volunteering that I've done for 11 years and stopped a few years ago

Sorry to hear this and if true then that is terrible it really is, but if it was me then I would try and see another psychiatrist for a second opinion.

I agree with comment above. Find a new doctor. If you feel like you have conflicting opinions about your mental health and your doctor isn’t following, then I’d definitely seek out someone else. You know yourself way more than a doctor.

Are you talking about a GP here or a PDoc? Is you're talking about a GP, find a PDoc you like immediately. GP's mean well but simply aren't experts in mental health.

She was a PDoc.

I would request a change but it will take so long to get a new one and they will. Probably discharge me soon anyway

I think even if they do discharge you still try and get another one as they might be a lot better and understanding to you.

I've tried and ditched several PDocs who either just didn't listen or seemed outmoded/dated FWIW.
