Feel crazy all the time!
An_254126 posted:
I am a 43 yo female who has always battled depression, behavioral outbursts, and anger problems. I cry for no reason, feel angry, don't want to be bothered, but yet I don't want to be alone. I take two different antidepressants, and they don't fix the problem. I am able to hide my crazy better with them, but just feel like it's just under the surface waiting to leap out at an inappropriate moment. Why me, Lord? I have struggled my whole life with this, frequent illness, etc. now I have high blood pressure and weight gain. My poor husband and children have had to deal me as well. I'm mean and nasty. I'm sad, feel lonely, and my husband doesn't understand it, so I can't talk to him. What do I do? I've had outbursts at work and have been in trouble. It's not like I'm not taking meds. I've seen psychiatrists. What can I do?

You say, you've seen does that mean you have one now?

Have you had a thorough evaluation by a psychiatrist?

Maybe its more of a "mood issue", and not exactly anxiety.

If antidepressants don't work that thoroughly, then maybe you need to try a mood stabilizer medication ??
Have you discussed this with your Psychiatrist before?
