How do I find help?
I’ve always struggled with anxiety but I’ve always been able to deal with it on my own. I recently had my first baby (11M). I suffered PPA and was prescribed 10 Ativan through my family doctor. He told me once I ran out of those, I would have to speak with someone like a psychiatrist. I found a couple different counsellors through my work benefits. I did several in person sessions, some text and some phone. They helped work on my mindset but there are some days when I just can’t even function, still. I’ve asked my doctor to talk to me about medications and he brushes it off. I went to a walk-in clinic and they said they can’t prescribe that sort of thing there. One of my counsellors told me I should be able to get through without medication because she works with a similar patient who don’t need meds. I felt like I was getting nowhere and dropped out of the counselling.
How can I find actual help? I have been through a lot of trauma lately, and just feel like I need some help getting over this rough time.
