    Why is it that psychiatrists take psychosis a lot more seriously than depression? Has anybody noticed that mental health professionals couldn't really care less when somebody feels depressed? Doctors just tell people with depression to 'get over it'.

    Yes I could be wanting to fucking die or I'd be dying in a lot of ways and they'd say, "You're not hearing voices anymore!:smile:" and they would nod eagerly and say, "That's good, I'm glad you're feeling better, it's definitely an improvement from last time." And I'd be withering away with anorexia and depression..

    Perhaps the first step to treating depression is to try to take care of the psychosis stuff first.

    when it comes to depression doctors all too easily shove you out the door with a perscription in hand. they don't bother to help you beyond that and it's sickening. Talking could probably help wonders but they never seem to have the time or patience. Yay for the system, not!!
