It could be that she is quite concerned about your health and that she realizes if your mood is not somewhat stable no matter what she does, it won't help. I think that is fair - it does not do you any good to spin your wheels. And as a professional who has an obligation to help patients, she may honestly feel that getting you on the right medication is what, in the longer run, will allow you to make progress and ultimately get better. I think you need to give her some benefit of the doubt and assume she is doing this for your well-being, not because she is tired of listening to you.

As a comparison, my doctor won't treat individuals for depression or other illnesses if he believes the person is dealing with a drug/alcohol problem. He always believes getting the substance abuse under control is critical; without doing so, treating someone for a mood problem is very difficult
