Why do I always have bad luck? Got sz. Drs refused to treat for sz after I told them I am hearing bad voices until I tried killing myself. The only med working for my negative symptoms gave me dangerous addictions and hypersexuality. Now my current pdr doesn’t want to change my meds forever knowing that there is a working med for my negative symptoms!
Just go with your new psychiatrist I know what you mean though I have sh!t luck too I had bad things happen to me then I ended up with schizophrenia which is the worst nothing good ever happens oh well
I have bad luck with mental health too.
Did he give you a reason why he didn’t want you switching to Vraylar?
I always felt like I’m nothing special for anyone
Never the smartest
Never the best looking, never really the best at anything and when ever some thing bad happens it’s always me that it happens to, never my friends or family members…
He said I don’t want to improve and that meds don’t cause negative symptoms. I told him how come I had no negative symptoms on Abilify. He just changed subject and said he won’t change my meds anymore. I don’t like arguing, I just found a new pdr and my mother knows her, she’s the cousin of my mom’s friend and she works in the same clinic as my family Dr.
I just need a referral from my family Dr to get the new pdr. My cousin is the receptionist at that clinic, she said she’ll book me tomorrow. The clinic is just 5 min from my house.
Yeah, I saw that in your other thread about the possible new pdr. It’s good you aren’t stuck with your current one then. I know how much hope you had/have in Vraylar.
Well, hopefully the med works out for ya. No guarantees. But it’s good to have hope. I had hope for Caplyta. I still do. I want to do half caplyta and half vraylar. My doctor is slow but methodical. I’m worried about his safety and stuff. Like he doesn’t test me for mood stabilizers and just tells me to quit meds. Most doctors don’t do that. I think it’s dangerous. He doesn’t slowly increase med dosage. Even the nurse got shocked. Doctors aren’t perfect. I had one doctor give me NMS, but that’s another story for another day…
At least you will save gas money and time. It’s good to have family friends. Might be good. It might be good to have another opinion.
In therapy, they mentioned people do doctor shopping, which I don’t, but I don’t have a problem with that unless it gets out of touch with reality. I cannot escape and find the perfect doctor.
“You can run, but you cannot hide” as they say. Felt like that many times lol.
I’m thinking about leaving my local clinic and trying an online one. I gotta get out of this town. I’m not going to move, but I need to find some better doctors outside this area. I’m so tried of it. They’re all in the same network/geographical area.
Your psychologist is right, that’s a thing, not all pdrs are equally good.
