Does anyone have experience with the vitamin patches? I'm concerned about my liquid vitamins, vitamin d, and Lexapro absorbing. I have seen surgeon, and my normal counselor and tomorrow I see my general Dr. I'm still emotional about what could go wrong

I'm drowning in this liquid. I called Dr crying. My depression is out of control and anxiety through the roof and worries everywhere. I know I need to get more calories in since I'm only getting 200 on a good day. I'm weak and want to nap all day. One
