What do I ask/tell my new doctor about my mental health?

I don't know what help I need anymore, or even if I need help. I have a lifelong history of depression and the past two and half years, I've experienced more life stressors than normal. The original reasons I made the appointment was to a. get a new script for my anti-anxiety medication (which is also meant to help my depression), especially as I accidentally abruptly ceased it over 5 days ago, and b. a referral to a new psychiatrist to prescribe ADHD medication.

Don't need no medicines

I thought I could get health insurance through my school. I can't. They don't offer it because they assume everyone has it through work or their parents. I can't afford COBRA. How do I shop for the best insurance for myself? What kind of insurance can I expect? How do I know which plans are useless? [more inside]

Anxiety over medical condition?

I've had a lifelong heart issue that's really never been a problem, but I find myself as I head towards my 30s growing more and more concerned with it and it's come to cause daily anxieties over imminent and horrible death, etc. Sometimes the anxiety is mild and sometimes it is of the stomach-churning, dark visions variety. I see a cardiologist on a regular basis and get good reports and generally feel as though I am in good hands, but I still cannot stop this mounting anxiety and fear of calamity and it's starting to hinder my ability to enjoy life. I am wondering if anyone has similar experiences and perhaps tips on how to combat this kind of anxiety. I do suffer from anxiety in general - who doesn't? - but I feel that this issue has become a focal point.
