Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question.
I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your mother... it could be that the depression has to do with grief over losing her? It sounds like you have successfully managed your anxiety through medication, which is good.
Has anything happened recently in your life, which you think could be causing you to feel down?
No, that's what is so strange about this relapse. I havent felt the serverity for this in 20 YEARS. s
Should we change meds, counseling???
Since you are seeing your md tomorrow, I would definitely ask him/her about any medication change that may be needed and that now you are feeling depressed.
It sounds like you have managed your anxiety through medication and now that you are feeling so down, yes I would definitely recommend therapy/counseling for you to understand better what is going on. Again it could be grief from the loss of your mother and/or other issues that may have been repressed and not dealt with, or something else. It's really hard to say without further exploration, which is where the counseling comes in. If you would like to give me your zip code, I can provide a list of therapists for you, in your area, who also specialize in depression.
