  • I TOTALLY agree with you. I am currently undergoing therapy and my therapist recommended that I see a psychiatrist and consider medication. I just came out of my appointment infuriated because I was similar appointed a NURSE practitioner who practically tried to diagnose me on the spot and said “Hmm. You can’t focus sometimes? That is a symptom of depression. I would recommend Prozac.” I’m like, are you kidding me? I have one small symptom. It was as if it was my roommate trying to diagnose me by reading symptoms on WebMd.
    I’m also writing a paper on this topic to explore how fucked up this system is in America for treating mental illness. Could I potentially hop on a call with you to learn more about your research/experiences?
