> I have been following this thread because I have anxiety, and have had several panic attacks. I have severe depression that I was being treated with an AD that didn't work. I haven't tried another because I am anxious about them since the first didn't work. I have been in some therapy but........ she says I have let me see if I can spell it right dissociation. When I read up on it, it sounds just like how I feel but sounds like I need more help than I am getting at the time. I have highs and lows like bi-polar or a mood disorder. My questions for you guys is where should I go to get help. So far the doctor that prescribed the AD I think is out of her league. I think the therapist is good but she is only available every two to three weeks and maybe I need more help than that. Is it reasonable to want more help. If so, where is the best place to start? Or should I just try lexapro and see if it helps me stablise more. I just want to retreat from the world again. I dont want to deal with it anymore.

You need to find a psychiatrist who specializes in mood disorders. Your therapist many be able help you out. When did your troubles start? Have you had any childhood traumas that warrent a diagnosis of a dissociative disorder? It can get complicated treating this, esp. if you have a mood disorder on top of this. That's why you need a experienced, reputable p-doc. Keep a detailed diary of you moods, sleep patterns, energy levels, etc.. Arm youself with knowledge and do some research for a better understanding of your condition. When did you symptoms occur? What happens when you take an AD?
