It's complicated and it's a problem...Don't know how else to title this, sorry.

<p>I take it that most people here are not extremely judgmental and out to push people into troubling corners so I'm going to be very forward about my experience and personal issue. If you have anything negative to say please rethink your statement and make very constructive criticisms if you find they will be helpful.</p>

<p>I have been diagnosed with major depression and social phobia/anxiety. I have been seeing a therapist for this for quite a few months until he recently gave up on me and asked that I seek help elsewhere. I felt dejected and even more isolated than ever before, not to mention the great loss of money I spent on his help. I ended up overdosing on a few pills the day after and then going through an intense hospitalization procedure in which I was put on a 5150 (a 72 hour involuntary hold). They prescribed/trialed various antidepressant drugs on me in the meantime and I have had negative side effects with all of them, notably somnolence and loss of concentration.</p>

<p>I have received a 4.0 GPA for the past three semesters and am a very motivated student, but I just don't think I can pull off finals next week for an acceptable GPA to transfer with. I carry doctors' notes with me every day to help teachers realize my situation, but there is only so much they can do. I can just do my best on finals next week I guess. Will UCLA be sympathetic to this situation or am I screwed?</p>

<p>I thank everyone for their contributions.</p>

<p>sorry to hear about your situation. you have a very particular and unique "problem" so I don't think you will find a clear cut answer. However, there are definitely resources out there. Here's one:
UCLA</a> Student Development Health Education</p>

<p>Look around the site and hopefully you can get in contact with someone at UCLA that can help you with your specific situation. Also, a lot of schools offer psychological counseling through their health insurance.</p>
