Newbie (2/9)



  1. Two years after realizing I have depression, I finally decided to see a psychiatrist. When I saw her, I really liked her and felt like she cared. However, she informed me I would have to wait another two weeks for an intake appointment, and an additional number of weeks before I could begin medication or therapy. I was really surprised and disappointed to hear that, because it seemed like a ridiculous amount of time and I would really like to begin now. I was just wondering if this is the actual process, if it takes this long just to get started on medication and therapy or if it is just this clinic. The clinic is part of a hospital in my area, and I only went to it because it was the closest place that had a female doctor. If someone could please share their experience with getting started, I would really appreciate it. I had already waited two weeks just to see this doctor, but I will go to another if I can get help sooner. I apologize if this isn't the proper area for this topic, but I just joined and wasn't sure where to post this.
