First i have to struggle to force myself to make the phone call and set a doctor appointment. Then as soon as i set an appointment and know i have to be somewhere, i start having anxiety days before the date of appointment. Then i have to force myself not to cancel the appointment.

@A MyDepressionTeam Member as far as money you can get extra help from local defacts family children services. They can help with food stamps and medicare. If your income is low. it is worth a try.
I'm the same in fact I Do make a doc appointment and then cancel cuz my anxiety gets so bad I can't leave the house . I don't see anyone 1 week to the next
I love to isolate and do absolutely nothing. However I faithfully keep all my doctors appointments because the antidepressants have made me feel so much better. I don’t want my doctor to cut me off because I’m noncompliant and don’t show up for appointments. The staff at my doctors office are kind and professional so I’m more than happy to go. Now if I could just get excited about eating a healthy diet and exercising I would be happier with myself. I am just so lazy!!
