I think that your first priority here should be getting on the right meds. Once you are on the right medication(s) then you truly should have no symptoms of this disorder. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and ask what will help for them. It kind of sounds like you are having trouble relating to your doctor. It might be worth trying to find one that you can relate a little bit better to. I know that psychiatrists are in short supply but it is still worth looking into. A general family physician can be a good resource to ask for a referral(and might be able to get you in sooner).
It could be that Lamictal as a mood stabalizer is not working for you. There are a variety of mood stabalizers, and different ones work for different people. Or maybe you need something for anxiety.
It is great if your girlfriend is willing to help you through this. However, maybe you need to rely on more than just her for support. Do you have family or other friends that you could call? That way you are not calling her numerous times and waiting by the phone for he to call you back.
