Hi :-)

Yes, I'm seeing a Psychiatrist who specializes in depression & anxiety. But, I've only seen him 3 times so far & he's basically just my meds doctor. I've been seeing a clinical social worker for 9 years or so for counseling. I stopped seeing her for a couple of years 'cause I was bummed out on getting "worse" & I thought the counseling was useless. I started back up again with her about a couple of months ago and am very glad that I did! :-) I almost feel like we're old friends. I can tell her anything, even willing to tell her about bad things that I think or feel, so, I feel like that's a constructive relationship there. And I've been with many other counselors before her. I'm 40 and I've been in counseling since High School.


> Do you see a psychiatrist or just your regular doc? It sounds like your chemistry is more complex than regular docs can deal with. A pdoc would have more experience and ideas.
> Another TCA like Desipramine might be a good try. It has been somewhat helpful for me. I also take Dexedrine (a stimulant, so really an ADD med) and that helps with motivation.
> Never fear--there is lots more to try! Also you didn't mention if you'd tried psychotherapy? Therapy can sometimes help people in ways that meds can't. Good luck!
> Best,
