I recently discovered this site while looking for answers to dealing with my b/f's bipolar disorder. On that post, they were so helpful and understanding, I thought I would look for some answers here regarding some of my issues.
I am currently dealing with major depression and anxiety issues, a lot of which have been intensified due to my b/f's bipolar disorder. I asked him to leave a few months ago, as he was not taking his meds or seeking treatment. I am still very depressed and have no energy. Atleast I manage to make it to work every day, but after work and on the weekends I am useless. All I do is sleep and eat! Ofcourse, eating has made me gain weight, which compounds the depression!
Now I am here in our home (i moved about an hour away), alone, with our dog. I am on 150 Effexor and Xanax as needed. I have not found a good pdoc or therapist in the area, and my gdoc isn't familiar with the area where I moved.
Any advice for finding a good pdoc and therapist in a new area?
Thanks for any advice you can give!
