Taking a leap into the unknown future is very scary and change is always disconcerting. Humans like things to be the same and changing our feelings and behaviors involves all sorts of biological changes which the body hates to have. Even when our current state is non-adaptive or even harmful, our biology tells us not to rock the boat. Perhaps that is why it is difficult for you to call for the appointment: the fear of facing the past and making changes, especially with all the changes you have gone through recently, can really put the brakes on assertive actions. Also, that may be part of the inertia you are having at home alone; the relief of stress makes your body loathe to get up and go, to make changes, to make decisions that might be wrong because it remembers what would happen before when any human interaction occurred or when you made a wrong decision. The body doesn't really realize that the danger is gone, so it continues to act the way it feels is protective of you.

Refer your doctor to Essestial Psychopharmacology by Stephen Stahl, MD, p227-229 for the fenfluramine. It acts to release more serotonin which helps with energy, depression and possibly the weight gain from Remeron.
