I havent spoken to anyone about this just here. I dont know what to do as ive never had to deal with this before.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.


I understand.

First: see your doctor.

Even your primary can diagnose depression if you have it, and treat it.

If it is complicated, you should ask for a referral to a psychiatrist.

You should also see a PhD clinical psychologist and learn cognitive behavioral therapy, as this can often be as effective as medications, or enhance them.

I would suggest you not wait and see your doctor asap.

Too many people with depression do not get treatment.
