I don't know what my issue is,but I'm pretty sure it's depression. I feel like all I ever do is yell at my kids. I don't know what to do! I don't have insurance so I can't see a therapist. If I go to a doctor will they actually prescribe me something or will they make me see a therapist first? How much does some of the depression meds cost without insurance?
I just can't stand how I feel everyday. Its a constant feeling of annoyance and not wanting to be around anyone, including my kids. They spend most the day playing in their rooms.
I really just need some help


Also... looking for input on different depression meds

I went to my regular doctor and she prescribed an antidepressant I have never been to a therapist although that would probably help things. It depends on which ones, talk to your doc and explain before hand cost xoncerns

The Dr can prescribe anti depressants, you don't have to see a therapist first. Some doctors may prefer that you do, but I'm sure that if you explained that you can't afford out the Dr would rather you have the meds than no help at all.

Wal mart has those 4 dollars prescriptions. When you go to the doctor, tell him you are on a budget with no insurance, he/she should be able to prescribe a medicine that you can get cheap from there. That is what my doctor does.Also some of the companys that make the medicine will give it to you free if you can show you cant afford it. I always got the form frm my doctor, but my cousin gets them off the internet.
