Am I the only one who thinks HN is an awful place to ask for mental health advice? If you asked your GP and got literally no suggestions, please dear God, find a new GP.

People without gov issued health insurance don't know the pain of bouncing from shitty doctor to shitty doctor. They see so many worse cases than you every day, 'sad gringo probably should off himself, the ingrateful lout' is the attitude you get when you try to discuss your problems. Have fun explaining the depth of your issues in a 2 minute pitch!!

You're probably right.

Of course, finding a GP at all was another overwhelming task that my depressed self put off for.... what, 10 years?

I haven't seen a GP in years, there's been no reason to.
