In the UK where I live, I have found that psychiatrists only deal with medication
, nothing else.
I am 71 now, but I lost my job because of depression
. I went onto invalidity benefit until I received my retirement pension. Because of loss of job I could not pay mortgage, and had to move from a house to a 1 bedroomed flat. So much of our life is affected by the depression.
You sound like a fighter, and I commend you for that.
