Too depressed to feel angry but feel I should be

Recommended Posts

Went to the doctor today. Had to wait from Thur to get in. I need to see a pdoc to get my meds sorted cos they aren't working so well. I'm not suicidal but not much better than that. Never seen that gp before and it was her first day at that clinic. When I asked to see the pdoc she said there is a 4 week wait then refused to put me on the waiting list because she wanted to try upping my current meds first and get me to come back in a week to see how that goes. She also doesn't believe in giving more than one psych med at a time so if I want to try something else she'll make me taper off what I'm on before giving me something new. That is NOT something I can handle. I'm too unstable. She didn't listen to me. I'm not going to do what she say s because I know what happens when I take more of my prozac - no sleep and hyperactive. 

So I've already waited 4 days, I also have to wait another week to go back and then on top I have to wait around 4 weeks to get into a pdoc. It's not ok. You don't fuck with psych meds when you aren't a pdoc. 

She also gave me the anorexia assessment shit. Put me on the scales, did BMI, asked about my eating habits. I wasn't in there to have my weight assessed. I was in there for a referral, that was denied for no good reason. Idk what to do other than wait a week and try again. They just do it to get money.

Wow ... what a prick! I'd fire her!  She is not a pdoc, like you said, and who the hell is she to deny a pdoc referral and take on psychiatry issues when she isn't a pdoc?  It makes no sense and is frustrating for me to just read it; I can't imagine how frustrated you are having to deal with all that.  Idk how easy it is to find another DR, but if you can do it, I would definitely do it.  Also, you can only be on one psych med at a time?  WTF?
