Psychiatrists are usually very unprofessional when it comes to my ideas. They can’t suppress their laughter. I have had a few who didn’t do that and I remember them.
No, but I had a psychopharmacologist who laughed hysterically when I mentioned my severe constipation. Veeeerrryyy unprofessional.
No but I felt offended by one pdoc who almost said I am crazy, he said I am making false connections and thoughts in my brain.
I’ve had about 50 psychiatrists in my life and almost none of them could keep a straight face. Maybe I’m just funny?
I didn’t have a doctor laugh, but when I was in a psych ward talking to a doctor, I stared to tear up a little bit. He told me to leave the room because I was being too emotional. He wasn’t the psychiatrist I don’t think, just a regular doctor we could see if we were having any other health issues. It seemed like a really odd thing to say to someone in a psych ward.
I had one psychiatrist and we hated each other. When I was doing badly, they couldn’t help smirking.
That’s just awful @everhopeful!
i had an episode that i thought everyone around me was going to die
i reported this to my therapist and she told me the following week that she told my psychiatrist and he laughed and said nothing i say is believable
Same as Aziz. The pdoc said ‘I’'m sorry, I think this is a schiz relapse after he laughed though to give him brownie points.
l laugh with my psydoc. He’s pretty witty and it’s usually a good sign if I can follow along and laugh with him or at his jokes. I’m lucky to have had good psydocs both here and in America. You find a good one you don’t let them go and it’s hard when I hear others having bad experiences because if makes me realise how lucky I stumbled across my guy.
No, I don’t think so. Never in negative way.
Nope, my pdoc is all business most of the time. She may engage in a little small talk here and there but it is mostly strictly business.
When i mentioned some unusual beliefs
I had, my ex pdoc laughed. I laughed too.
You couldn’t write it,
I drove to see my Psychiatrist and told him I was completely healed, It was when I got my first car. I told him I had recovered and told him to remove my name off his computer.
I then had an appointment come through the door convinced it was to end my time at the hospital outpatient’s. No………when I arrived there were several doctors and two social workers. He put me on a section 2 and it went from 28 days to 56 before I was allowed on home leave. He patronised me and threatened me with the police if I was to leave the acute ward.
Honestly. I felt great until I had a sec-2 slapped on me. Basically for no reason.
Can’t win. No matter how great you feel
I’ve said it before but I think people thought I was joking, if you want to be released from the hospital make them think you don’t want to leave. They’ll release you shortly afterwards.
Yes, my first one.
The discussion went something like this:
Me: “I still can’t come to terms with the idea that I’m so ill. Just 2 months prior I’d taken part in a marathon”
Him: “Oh, so you ran a marathon?!”
Me: “Unfortunately I walked for about 5km”.
Him (scornfully): “Haha, even I am able to run for 5km”
Me: “Yes, but I ran the other 37”.
Him (no longer laughing): “Ah, I see. Well done…”
Soon after I found myself a better pdoc, anyway.
I like that you calmly defended yourself @Andrey
I don’t know, serious medication for a not so serious illness. Sometimes i am happy i am not taken too seriously. Well, again, i don’t know, would i die for my statements, i don’t think so. I am just happy to be still alive. I ve been laughed at and abused in psychiatry lots of times.
I had a pdoc who was kind of amused when I told him I like to eat a piece of bread covered with maple syrup. I was talking about whole grain bread. Covering a slice of whole grain bread with maple syrup is not too different from covering a pancake with syrup.
my pdoc laughs a lot but i say silly things i think. But i laugh too when he laughs.
