Has anyone else had problems with getting doctors to properly diagnose you?

I've been struggling all my life, theres not a time I can remember where I didn't feel the way that I do everyday.. And growing up, my parent's never got me help.. I kept having out bursts, episodes... And anyway, now I'm diagnosed with MDD, and Anxiety... But I've never been properly evaluated... I tried to commit suicide a few years ago, and when I woke up in the hospital that was my diagnosis... No questions were asked about anything.. And now that I've asked on multiple occasions for one, they're still not giving it to me. I feel like my doctors are just going by what all the other doctors before are saying, and not even listening to me about whats going on.. And it doesn't help I have such a hard time communicating anyway.. And I don't know how to help them understand.. #Anxiety #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Doctors #ineedadvice
