maybe make an appointment with another psychiatrist that has good recommendations, and continue going to this guy until you get into the other one.
I could do that! I dunno :/ I think I’ll just deal for now…. Just frustrated because he only made an appointment for a month away… i dunno.
how long have you been taking the meds? because they do take a while to kick in. as for the psychiatrist, he sounds like the worst. you should most definitely look for a new one soon. i see dr passov at aurora but i’ve only seen her twice so i dunno
Erm. Like 3 years? I started one, three years ago, added another one last summer and just started this new one a month or so ago. He’s going to get me off of the one I’ve been on the longest. see, that’s part of the problem, I’ve heard great things about Aurora doctors but I’m a part of Theda Care :/ And thank you *hug*
This was the end result:
OH GOD, the Brazil one. Guys, do you really think we walk like this all the time? U.U
I KNOW RIGHT. GOSH.
The UK one’s pretty accurate :P
So, after four months, I finally got in to see a psychiatrist. He was actually rather creepy… And basically all he did was reduce one anti-depressant, and change how I’m taking another (from three pills a day to one extended release). He told me, “Just keep doing what you’re doing and after a long time, things will improve.” Excuse me asshole. I have been doing what I’m doing for over a year. And nothing has changed. I also confided in him that I have a history of self-harm. He really didn’t seem to give a fuck. I told him I hadn’t cut in two weeks, (which is true) and he basically said, “well good.” And that was it… I want to go see someone else, someone I am comfortable with. But I can’t wait another 4 months to see a different psychiatrist. Besides, I don’t see him for another month…
Does anyone have any tips? I don’t know what to do anymore… And I can’t do this by myself.
