Does Anyone Know Can A Psychiatrist Diagnose Your Depression?

Does Anyone Know Can A Psychiatrist Diagnose Your Depression?

Also can a psychiatrist prescribe Chantix for quitting smoking. I quit over 2 years ago and just started smoking again! I need the Chantix to help me again. I started due to Severe Anxiety and Depression. My depression has been Severe also. I'm really hoping this site can help me get through my days. I struggle from when I wake up to when I go to sleep.

Emotional Support Animal

Emotional Support Animal

I rent and have to get approval to have a pet even though my doctor stated that I would greatly benefit by having a pet the agency wants more specific information. Pet screening wants to know what major live problems are caused by my depression and what part the pet would have in improving my condition.

Traumatic Anniversary

Traumatic Anniversary

I was trying to talk with my therapist today about how I was feeling overwhelmed that our state is going into a covid freeze. The entire state is strictly locked down because covid cases are on the rise.
It happens that this lock down lands on the day I found my father dead in the house. I usually make myself do something outside of the house that date.

Talk Therapy

Talk Therapy

I've been seeing a therapist for the last few months. He says I have ptsd and I dissociate a lot. He wants me to connect with my body more so that he can help me reprocess my traumas with emdr.
Most of the time I just sit in his office for 55 minutes and stare at things because I'm afraid to talk in general. I'm also afraid to say that I have desires to self harm. At intake he said he would report such things.. so I just keep quiet and continue fighting my demons. :(
I'm not making progress but he… read more

What's The Point?

What's The Point?

Whats the point in being alive when I'm hated by everyone? When I'm loathed by God and the Universe? Why bother waste air and space when I could disappear and no longer be a burden to life? If I hate myself enough to punish myself with self pain, whats the point? Why would I want to live another day when there is nothing out there for me, except misery, hatred, and failure?

Has Anyone Experienced A Loss Of Appetite Or The Inability To Eat When They Started On Wellbutrin (Buproprion)?

Has Anyone Experienced A Loss Of Appetite Or The Inability To Eat When They Started On Wellbutrin (Buproprion)?

I've been taking it for about 3 weeks, and in that time I've been experiencing loss of appetite. I have to force myself to eat and if it's not something I like, I gag on it.

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Have never taken it but if it is affecting your appetite that badly then I would talk to your doctor again.
