She Doesn't Want To Take An Anti-Anxiety Meds
Today we saw her psychiatrist. Her counselor had suggested that we look into a long acting anti-anxiety medication to deal with her anger/anxiety. I asked her psychiatrist about it today. He was ready to write her a prescription when she said, "I don't think I need to take any anti-anxiety medicine." What? Her entire teen life she told me she suffered from anxiety and depression and that's why she gets so angry...I think she likes being angry and miserable. Her psychiatrist told us to look into three different medicines (wellbutrin, prozac and cymbalta). She later told me she doesn't want to be a Stepford Wife...happy all the time...and that was just sickening to think she would act like a zombie...etc. What? [I'm clueless again]...Of course I think [because I don't trust her] she's got some type of motive for not wanting to take the medicine. Any thoughts?
