Alright. It's 80 degrees and sunny out and I'm still a crying mess. Terrified I'm scaring my boyfriend away. Can't muster the energy to go grocery shopping.

Went to my psychiatrist yesterday and he made me feel worse. When I talked about my boyfriend he began saying some things that felt inappropriate. I feel scuzzy because I'm supposed to be able to trust him.

Feeling really rotten and like I'm a waste of space.

I'm going off Wellbutrin because it's not helping.

Just on Ritalin now...

So sick of feeling this crummy... HELP?

So sorry to hear that you're feeling that way. I know how you feel. There are days when I literally cannot get out of bed because depression sucked all the energy out of me.

Like you, I've also been on Wellbutrin (and a bunch of other medications) which worked for a while until my body got use to it.

One thing , though, that has help me get out of my funk is exercising. It doesn't has to be anything strenuous. It can just be a short walk outdoors. I know it's hard, esp. when you don't have the energy and feel bummed out, but it really does help clear your head.

Keeping a journal and writing out your thoughts and positive things (and positive affirmations) that you want to accomplish also helps.

Your psychiatrist should not have left you with the emotional impression you have from your last meeting with him. I would be inclined to look for another psychiatrist.

I am sorry for what you are going through. Was the psychiatrist innappropriate with you? Like IG said, maybe look for a new one or discuss it with them next time you see them. I hope things work out for you.

Hugs, Karen
