Can my general Doctor prescribe me anti depressants or anxiety medication?
I have been on anti depressants before and seen a therapist, but I am not interested in therapy right now. I have gone a long time without meds but I don't think I can take this anymore. I wake up kind of in a good mood some days, some days I dread just doing everyday things. I get really mad about the littlest thing and stay mad most of the day, I'm always irritated at my daughter, my husband everything. I dread going to bed at night because when I lay down I just worry and think to the point I cry almost every night and it starts over the next day. It gets worse the week before I start my period and I just thought it was PMS or something, but this time it didn't go away as my period stopped or anything. I'm so stressed out and unhappy most days, it got to it's worst point last night, I just wanted to get out of bed and take a bottle of pills. I'm so tired of everything, everything has become a chore. I am ashamed to admit it but even playing with my daughter has become a problem, sometimes I want to just be left alone all day and be away from everyone. Then sometimes I feel so lonely like I have nobody but I know it's my attitude pushing everyone away. I really need help.
Yes, but seeing a psychiatrist is your best bet, they know these things a lot better than a regular doctor. I would get the meds from your regular doctor, and have them refer you. Therapy usually goes with it though. I HATED it until i found the right person. I went through at least 20 of them over years until i found one i liked. Good luck, and I can totally empathize with how you're feeling
