    Hi winnie.

    I'm sorry that you're feeling low. Reading your post it seems to me like your psychiatrist is not being very helpful or supportive.

    As you know some medication does take a little time to work and get used too.

    It mite be worth going to see your G.P and asking for there advice on medication. It may be worth going back on medication that you were taking 4 weeks ago. Have you been refered to the local mental health team?

    Just remember that depression is not your fault and life is worth living.

    Try and make some me time for yourself.

    You are not alone there are lots of us suffering from this awful illness.

    If you feel like a rant then come back and have one.

    Best wishes and keep going.

    Hi winnie

    It's good that your psychologist is annoyed about your prat of a psychiatrist.

    It mite be worth asking your G.P to refer you too your local mental health team.

    I know that it's difficult but keep on fighting. I have had a naff day today, been feeling low and very tired.

    Stick with it and keep in touch.
