I'm always astonished at the waiting lists you guys in the UK have to deal with just to see a pdoc. What's the suicide rate there? I ask because I don't think I'd still be here if I hadn't gotten an appointment with a pdoc as soon as I did (in US).
I really hope you're feeling better soon. I don't mean to minimalize how you're feeling, but could maybe some of it be related to ending your wonderful trip to Thailand? I felt more depressed (than usual) after returning from a year spent in Australia, after all the coming home excitement went away.


> Hi!!
> I'm on Zyprexa with Effexor... But I've been on SO many meds over the past 3 years its insane... My GP has given up on me... I wish there was more help available... You'd think being in London would help, but it just means HUGE waiting lists.. its a 4 week wait just to see a GP at my surgery, and I am on an 18 month waiting list for therapy :o( I have Borderline Personality discorder, but have heavy depression associated with it...

I tried calling out for help there, to try and talk to them, but I got no replies... They were all too interested in the new member to worry about old hands that were falling off the edge of the cliff.

> > I rememeber you. Nikki from London. Right?. I feel as if I have been in a similar boat to yours. Although I was not so fortunate to be able to receive NHS treatment from the community psychiatrist every 3 months. Its a really difficult situation; the limitations of the NHS vs the cost of private health. One things I would mention though is that the NHS is limited in what medicines they will use. They have a budget too. Medications which are not licensed, as far as I am aware are not an option. i.e. the NHS pdoc I saw would not prescribe Zyprexa as an augmentor when I relapsed on Paroxetine.

They are available in health food shops. Also is there no way you can raise the to go private. Being in London gives you a great advantage. Also if you post what you have got-depression?, youve tried, what worked and
