I'm in portland for the next few months finishing up my first year of college. Planning to going back home to LA pursue a different degree come summer, but I have to stick out the rest of the semester here.
I am specifically looking for a preliminary diagnosis of mostly anxiety-related symptoms I have been experiencing for the last few years. Ideally, I can get a prescription for this semester - anxiety is much worse in an academic environment - but even just an initial diagnosis to bring back to LA would be encouraging.
I have seen a therapist and an MD on campus, but have been consistently under-impressed with the mental healthcare here at school. I was on welbutrin for 2-3 months last semester with little noticeable effect. Oh, and I am at Reed College, so anyone close-by would be convenient, although i have a car here and can get to downtown etc
