Hi everyone,

Today was a little better emotionally. I managed to get out of bed. I am still feeling pretty down though. tomorrow I see my psychiatrist I am hoping he will listen to me once and for all. I have been telling him for awhile now that my medication is not working. I hate feeling like this. I went to see my counsellor today. We had a good appointment. At least he listens to me. I feel like he is the only one that does. I am thinking about joining herbal magic. I went to an information session and they offered me a free program. To be honest part of me thinks it is to good to be true, Does anyone know anything about herbal magic?

    Tanya if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Today was a majorly better day for you getting out of bed emoticon Have you thought of putting your feelings about the situation in a letter that he can read when he is not rushed around with patients to care for. Seeing it written out may drive your need home to him when talking he isn't listening too. If it just won't work then it is best to go about finding a less intimidating Psych and one that will listen when you speak about things like your meds not being strong enough, Think about what stress this is putting you through it is counter productive and sending you into a deep spiral the other way. Thats not the way it has to be. emoticon

    Well, Tanya, I hadn't heard of Herbal Magic before your blog entry this evening, so I can't make any relevant comments about it, but you're sounding better - despite your frustration with the communication (or difficulties with it) - between your psychiatrist and yourself. That has me concerned, especially if it does turn out you could use a fine-tuning or even complete change in the type of medicine you're taking. If you don't feel the psychiatrist is helping you in a reasonable amount of time - and it can take a long time to find just the right med or meds for a patient and then individually fine-tune it to meet their needs - you might consider asking your counselor if they might be able to recommend another psychiatrist covered by your medical plan. This could take some work, and when you're struggling with depression, it's *especially* hard, but it could well be worth your while if you don't feel you're getting good results.

    But thinking back to the Herbal Magic for a moment, here's a word of warning: If taking any sort of herbal or other natural supplement is part of their program, make very sure your MD and your psychiatrist are aware of it, and especially, what herb or herbs are in it. Some of them can have serious reactions with either psychoactive or other medications. Myself, I'd feel more inclined to just stick with Spark's program as it's also completely free and there's no need to purchase special foods, supplements, or anything else. I just used Spark when I lost my weight.

    Keep us posted on your progress! You're starting to sound better :) emoticon Susan

    To just sit and listen to soft worship music is such a help for me.
