Been there, done that, folded the T-shirt... Ines

That's a lousy place to be, and the worst part is the waiting. Your GP is probably right, in that it probably is best to wait for the specialist to choose the next step for meds. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of fast acting options to deal with depression.

I forget, are you in Canada or the UK? Or are you in the States? If you're in the States, maybe you could call the specialist and ask if you can be seen sooner? Sometimes, you can get on a list to be called if anyone cancels, which might get you in earlier. It's worth calling and asking, at any rate.

For now, though, can you remind yourself that this holding pattern isn't forever? That you *will* see someone in a month, and that something will change then? It may be hard to focus on that -- I know it is for me, and believe me I know how horrible that's been for me in the past -- but maybe reminding yourself of that may help.

I'm sorry you're feeling so rotten. It is a terrible place to be, and I hope it doesn't last long for you.
