Thank you for your reply, babegolden20. Yes, I know for sure that I'm suffering from depression. The way you described it is like the perfect reflection of how I feel from a day to day basis. But apathy convinces you not to do anything or care about anything. I've read that even people who aren't depressed can be apathetic. About the antidepressants, I've been on meds intended for bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, and other major mental disorders aside from depression. Other than anxiety, I don't think I have those disorders. I can't understand why my psychiatrist won't prescribe me meds just for aiding with depression. In the past I've been on several different meds; paxil, zoloft, seroquel, abilify, and now respiridone.
