Kaye-

I understand. I too was crushed by the 3 doctors I saw last year who turned me away. They made me feel like I just had a defective personality and no disease or condition. Everything was my fault. They could do nothing for me.

I basically gave up all hope at that point. I figured if three consecutive doctors told me that there was no way medication could help me, they must be right.

That's really a shame that such a mindset exists with our practitioners. They barely gave me the time of day and practically told me I was just a messed up person.

It's very strange. I certainly don't appear to have a major personality disorder or look like a drug-seeker. I never asked for specific drugs. I looked like a clean-cut pre-med college student. That may be part of the problem. I think college students are not very well trusted or respected by the public in general. Plus, there tends to be the idea that we are still "finding ourselves", instead of having *real* depression or anxiety.

Haha, it's one thing coming from the two GP's I saw. They have plenty of other ailments to believe in treating. But coming from the psychiatrist?! I wonder what he actually does during the day. He seemed to be the most anti-medication person I'd ever met.

So, I am happy that I went back to my regular doctor. And I'm happy that I have been prescribed medication that are helpful, even though I'm not 100% at the moment and not loving my treatment. It makes me feel less hopeless, which the others made me feel.
