In that case when you next see your Psychiatrist you NEED to be assertive - (not aggressive) and if you feel he isn't listening, ask him to listen to you, and then get him to repeat in his own words, so that YOU know he properly heard you. If he still doesn't seem to take on board what you said about your thoughts/feelings on the medication, ask him WHY! If he comes out with anything that you deem to be insulting or hurtful, TELL him that and tell him why!

I do see a counsellor for theapy but it is hard cause i honestly think my meds are not working anymore and no one seems to care. I fell like i am slipping deeper and deeper into depression each day. I am so frustrated i don't know what to do.

Are you in a position where you could see another Psychiatrist? At least then you would feel like you have more people in your corner covering your back! My hubby saw a Psychiatrist for over a year, and on a very regular basis - initially weekly. His Psychiatrist provided Therapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as medications and it worked really well.

I don't know what you told that psychiatrist that he found unbelievable, but I wonder if you see this person for therapy and medication? If you don't see a psychologist or psychotherapist for therapy, you may want to consider it.

Hello Team,

This has been a hard wek for me. I have been feeling very depressed and discourage. Although yesterday was a pretty good day. Today i feel like crap again. I don't know why i feel so down and low. I tried talking to my psychiatrist about it but he wasn't very helpful. I feel lilke he doesn't believe me all he told me was to snap out of it. i hate when people say that cause if i had a choice i wouldn't choose to feel this way. It is so frustrating when the people that are suppose to help you don't. I feel stuck and all alone i can't talk to my family about how i am feel and now apparently i can't talk to my psychitrist either.
