Well, my appointment is in 3 hours... I'm really nervous, I just wish it would hurry up and be 4 already so I could get it over with.
I typed up a list of my feelings/concerns that I know I will choke up on and not end up telling her otherwise so I will give it to her beforehand. I'm sure we'll probably discuss therapy, though I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet. We'll see.
Is it presumptuous to ask that I be put on a certain antidepressant? I have this fear of coming across as a hypochondriac or that I'm someone that sits around diagnosing herself and saying "I think I have this and I need this".
But I've done a lot of thinking about this and when I finally decided to take the medicinal route, I researched alot of the popular antidepressants and their side effects, and I really think Wellbutrin would probably be my best bet, as I'm particularly concerned about weight gain and loss of sex drive/ability. Maybe I'll just tell her my concerns about that and hopefully she'll come to the Wellbutrin decision on her own...
Well, wish me luck! I'll post back this afternoon on here and let you all know how it went. Thanks for all your support everyone; I probably would have never actually went through with this if it weren't for you all.
