what a jip

Posted by g_g_g_unit on October 17, 2011, at 5:07:02

so nearly 3 weeks after my relatively unspectacular 'cry for help', I saw a psych professor for a second opinion today. surprisingly, his sentiments echoed every other stuffy, close-minded psychiatrist I've encountered - namely, despite your lifelong, evidently comprising difficulties with attention, you don't have ADHD (??), but you do suffer from OCD and depression.

anyway, I thank God for my primarily psychiatrist - who recognizes my attentional difficulties, but who's now out of prescribing ideas.

I'm taking 15mg of Lexapro and 500mg of Depakote. I feel numb, dissociated and can't really read or focus. Stimulants kinda help but increase anxiety too much. The professor recommended I increase the Lexapro to 20mg, switch the Depakote for 10-15mg of Zyprexa and stay completely away from psychostimulants.

I know part of my is just being an uncompliant jerk, but I just fail to see how Zyprexa is going to help my social anxiety (which he insisted it will), or my anhedonia, apathy and disastrous executive function. I kinda figured it would just make all that stuff worse? he also said it's "highly unlikely" that I experienced akathisia on only 25mg of Seroquel.

2 weeks 'til my doc gets back. haven't left bed since I got home from the appointment 5 hours ago. there just doesn't seem to be any end in sight..
