What kind of doctor is this? A GP or a Psychiatrist?
The good news is that this started 2 weeks ago and you sought help immediately. Not only does that show you've got a goody titled towards treatment, but it also means you've caught this early. It's always good to start treatment as soon as possible.
Have you been avoiding starting the meds, or is it that you just got the scrip and haven't picked them up?
Whatever the case, don't delay. SSRIs take awhile to kick in, as I'm sure you're aware.
It would be helpful to seek out some CBT as well.
Keep in mind that this is temporary. You'll get your life back. The one thing this is not is silly. You are suffering, there's nothing silly about that.
Good luck. I'm sure you'll start getting better soon.
