I'm gonna have to agree with you. Is he some sort of private doctor? No insurance at all? I can't swing $400, then subsequent payments for additional visits. Brookline is a hike from where I live too, and I hate driving long distances.

Oh yeah, I never said the lack of love had anything to do with my weight gain.
Fanapt caused the 15 pound gain over 1.5 years ago, and Nardil is the one slowing my metabolism down, or god knows what, and will not let the weight go.

I was in bed most of today and will probably go back, I just couldn't sleep anymore so I got up. I will in bed all of yesterday and the day before. I keep thinking about suicide. Even if I make it into the DBS study which is very difficult in and of itself, I have no idea what kind of success rate I'm going to see.

I still can't find a doctor to give me selegeline. My doctor is a jerk. He's given me PLENTY of meds he was not familiar with. He intentionally denied Selly because I didn't take his advice, drive 2 hours north to Dartmouth/Hitchcock and go inpatient just to see this certain doctor. It's a general ward. SORRY, no thanks. I can't describe how much I hate being trapped in one of those places, and was given NO guarantees how long I would be there, and I can't go anyway. My wife works and I have to watch the kids (or at least be home sleeping). My daughter is old enough to help out, but not alone.

He flat out lies, because I'm sure he knows that selly is the active ingredient in Emsam (which is he is familiar with). So he's got a God complex to, or a Dad complex with me. He's literally punishing me for not taking his terrible advice.
