Good Morning ! This very same thing happens to me everytime I have an appointment with my Psychiatrist. I get so nervous as I feel like I am walking into a confrontation.............she prescribles the meds and if I do not agree I just get the standard lecture about how if I do not listen to her I will crash.
My BP is always up in her office when she checks it but never in my PCP office.
I come away feeling depressed as I am carrying another card for the old, come back next month.
Yes depression can be situational too. Just my mornings 2 cents.
I am glad to hear you made it through your appointment and that you are using new ways to keep the depression and anxiety at bay. I am very proud of you as you should be proud too.
Peace begins with a smile,
