Hi i have been being treated for depression, and anxiety for several months now, my doctor has tried several diffrent depression medications and and medications for anxiety, however none of these seem to be working i am now questioning weather or not i might have adhd, im having a hard time understanding the condition my doctor doesnt listen to me very well, whenever i tell him somthing it is almost as if he just blows it off or tries to justify it with somthing else, i have picked at my skin and scarred my self terribly since i was sixteen so i tend to think i may have some kind of compulsive disorder can someone please help me?

It sounds like you need a new Dr.

You should be seeing a psychiatrist - - one who will listen to your concerns and do a thorough evaluation.

You can call your local hospital for a referral or talk to a friend, but there is no reason to continue on with a psychiatrist who doesn't listen to your concerns.

Take care,
