Indecisiveness: diagnosis? treatment?

Posted by Eric on May 11, 1999, at 14:04:44

Dear Dr Bob and others,
I have been suffering from indecisiveness since the
age of 18. I have had great difficulties taking
decisions concerning basic problems like: where
to live? which studies to do? which job to take?
I hesitated for years before marrying. I have lived
in different countries, studied different studies
(chemistry, medicine), and currently I am busy
doubting whether I should specialize in family
medicine, specialize in oncology, specialize in
psychiatry, work as a GP, or embark on a research
project (I have been admitted in all these).
I have had a very special childhood: my mother
suffered from post-partum psychosis after I was born,
and she never developed any warm feelings toward me.
My father was extremely violent and I have been
severely abused physically and psychologically until
the age of 18.
My question is the following: is this symptom of
indecisiveness a symptom of OCD or of depression?
And what is the most adequate treatment?
I tried already more than once sertraline, but I
never reached higher doses than 100 mg/day because
of the somnolence it induced. It did not help at all.
I also tried clonazepam 1 mg/day for 2 weeks. It did
not help either. Do you have an advice?
