What's New in Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD)
Community Voices

Well it's finally official.... I have the diagnosis of #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder and #AvoidantPersonalityDisorder . I've told 2 friends so far, but not my husband. He's self-admittedly "extremely judgemental" and very quick to make those judgements. I don't think he'll believe me, especially since recently he doesn't believe anything I say.... not even my food preferences.
I've asked him to join a few of my therapy sessions, to learn about me, but it's been a couple weeks and no response still. I've only come to realize that he's a #narcissist in the last year. But since my diagnosis, my therapist is now unsure if he should join us at all.
I don't know what to do and home life is pretty friggin hostile. #MajorDepressiveDisorder #TreatmentresistantDepression #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #SocialAnxiety #possiblyBipolar #waitingforautismtesting

Good afternoon everyone. I was recently informed about a new treatment for depression, ‘Esketamine’, which is known for treating people with Treatment Residtant Depression TRD, and it lead me to TRANSCRANIAL MAGNETIC STIMULATION (TMS). Has anyone used this or researched this further. If not then you should. It looks promising🤞🏻

Has anyone ever had this horrible experience I’m having with doctors that won’t take patients that are treatment-resistant with major depression?

I’m fine and better without an antidepressant or all of the combos of antidepressants that I had tried.
I can’t even safely take antidepressants because they actually made me actively suicidal in my early 40’s.

But, I still have needed prescription sleeping pills to sleep even for 4 hours and I still have needed anxiety medication especially now while I watch my cat daughter, my only child, suffering most days and deteriorating from her very old age and her medication side effects for her scary hyperthyroid condition.

But, I can’t get a new doctor to take me as a patient, and obviously, I do need one still, but the doctor I have been going to repeatedly and unmistakably treats me horrible -demeaning-laughing in my face about my disabilities, so I obviously can’t put myself through that with him any longer.

And to make matters even worse - when my current sleeping pill and anxiety pill prescriptions run out, I have had fear instilled in me by multiple doctors and my pharmacist that I will experience unbearable withdrawal symptoms for a very long time since they are both controlled substances that I was put on since 2019. And not one doctor wants to do their job and even monitor me as I come off of these medications. #Doctors #Psychiatrists #MedicalProfessionals #TreatmentresistantDepression #CheckInWithMe #MajorDepression #ChronicDepression #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Insomnia #Anxiety
