I went to see pdoc yesterday. I guess they "worked me in" as a crisis patient because I was entertaining thoughts of suicide (just "entertaining" mind you - if I was really serious I wouldn't tell anyone I just see myself headed down that path). They (meaning resident and attending) discussed i/p but decided to change my a/d and see me again in a week. I guess I'm not sick enough. In the meantime I'm so depressed I can't work. What if I take another week off work and I'm not better? Wouldn't i/p fix me faster? Maybe not. Maybe I just have to wait and see if the new medicine works. They switched me from zoloft to effexor. Anyone else on effexor? How's it working? I tried wellbutrin and that didn't do squat. I'm afraid effexor won't work either and I'll get worse.
