I have been on Prozac for over 3 years now, this is my third course of drug treatment for my depression. I have not seen a Psychiatrist this time, just been treated by a P.A. I haven't been feeling that well, some of it side effects of drug and some of depression. Decided I deserved a "real" doc, so tomarrow I drive 2 hours to one of only two shrinks in the nearest town to me (tried to get an appt with the other one but his staff was so rude I hung up) Anyhow i am having all sorts of anxiety about the appt. Not even sure what I want to gain from going except maybe a new drug with fewer side effects for me. Is it normal to be this paranoid and anxious. I find myself hoping the guy doesn't think I'm a freak! How weird is that? Second guessing my decision to seek another doctor big time. Any advice from those of you more "seasoned" than I? Cat

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
