Aug 29, 2018 · Long-term depression in Depression & Anxiety

@gingerw It seemed absolutely strange to me. She didn't asked me if I mind it at all. I understand maybe she couldn't leave her alone at home, it's ok, but somehow I couldn't talk about my problems there. She could at least ask, but she acted like there is nothing uncommon.

@windwalker I've read about NAMI but in not sure if I can contact them, because I live outside U.S.
Thank you for sharing your story. I can understand that your daughter doesn't like to open up about her condition. People can be very mean, I experienced in the past that somebody seems to be understanding but then stubbed me in my back. Of course, other people can see that something is not all right, especially if they deal with that person for longer time. It happened to me in my previous jobs. But it is important to know that someone care. There may an only a few people who may know about about it and understand it. We just need to find these people.

@gingerw thank you for your encouraging post. I'm very happy I found Connect. Although I don't post much, it helps me a lot.

My wife knows about the difficulties I've experiencing but nobody else knows. I didn't want to bother anybody. It's always harder and harder for me to open up to somebody. It is not good, I know.
Hopefully, there symptoms will stop now when I have my medicine.

@lisalucier so I went to my doctor today. I called her yesterday and she told me I can come. My visit tool less than 5 minutes. I just asked for the prescription, there were no space to discuss anything, like the problems I have with withdrawal symptoms. By the way, is it common that her daughter is there with her? She is around 10 or 11 I guess. I mean literary sitting there and listening to her discussions with the patients? For me gt was not possible to open up and talk about what I should talk to her. I just asked for my prescription and left.

@lisalucier Thanks for remembering me although I haven't posted anything for long time.
I don't have new psychiatrist yet. I don't know how to explain that by words but I somehow I have a problem to look for a new one. I feel disappointed by attitude of this one and somehow it is hard for me to approach any. I haven't visited my current psychiatrist since February. I just asked her to send me prescription by post. It is always ok with her, she never even asks of how I'm doing. I really feel disappointed, I don't see any real interest there and I don't have strength to look for a new one.
Actually, I'm out of Fevarin (Fluvoxamine) for more that one week already. I'm taking it since 2009. I think I experience withdrawal symptoms. I feel nervous, agitated, my sleep is very bad and even when I manage to sleep I have bad dreams, very vivid and total nonsense. I also experience dizziness and feeling like I'm losing the balance. My doctor is on holiday so I will call her on Monday to send me the prescription.

@lisalucier they didn't, they just offer anonymous help through talking, later I found this psychiatrist by myself, obvously not good choice. All good doctors have many patients and can't accept more.

@parus @ainsleigh @lisalucier thank you all for your kind words. I feel so alone with my feelings sometimes. Those who never experienced depression can't understand it. Advices that I should overcome it do not help.
My psychiatrist is not interested to help. When I am there, she mostly talks about herself or gives general advices without asking me anything. And I am really not motivated to go there. I will try to find another psychiatrist, but it is so hard to find a good one.
I remember writing to Samaritans long time ago. We exchanged few emails. I can write them again. Thank you for your patience with me.
