The doctor doesn't take me seriously

I've been to the doctor serveral times to discuss my feeling anxious, fatigue and crying for no apparent reason other than feeling totally lost in my thoughts.

At first we put it down to my pill, but having had a summer of feeling relatively normal, I have come to realise it is my being at Uni which has been increasing my levels of, depression I guess. What can I say to my doctor for her to take me seriously and help me do something about it??

Re: The doctor doesn't take me seriously

If that doctor doesn't take you seriously, then you may have to change doctors. I went to a couple of doctors who told me I was having hormonal mood swings or that I needed to lose weight to start feeling better again. Finally after several years of always feeling sad, crying and isolating myself, I found a doctor who listened and referred me to a psychiatrist who prescribed an antidepressant and anti-anxiety med. I am learning to cope with my depression and regaining my life. Don't give up. There are doctors who will listen and help.
