Psychiatrist says everything is fine. This can’t be what fine feels like. I don’t know what to do.
Smokes is doing her best to hold it together but she ended up fooling more than just herself.
I’m very sorry. Y’all are nice people and I don’t want you to worry but I just don’t know where else to vent.
Stay lovely, I’m gonna try to get this sorted out
Sometimes people have lapse in attention and miss what is being said.
Othertimes, they hear, they just continue on because “they know best”. They may not argue a point with you, but instead just do what they wanted to do.
(unable to change his mind with your statements)
You should be 100% honest with your doctors !
This is the perfect place to vent. I’m sorry you don’t feel you’re being listened to.
I just got back from my apt with psychiatrist, and he said I looked fine, but I still feel a little unhinged from reality. I think he just wanted me out of his office. I mean I’m not seeing things right now, but my paranoia is always lurking up on me. I guess he thinks I’m fine for now. I hope you get to feeling better soon, Smokes. Everything will be ok. If you ever need support, just pm me.
I know… you’re right… and if roles were reversed I would be saying exactly the same thing, for sure
I asked around and yeah, apparently this guy has a reputation for slapping ‘anxiety’ on people’s files and calling it a day. I do have other options, and I guess I’ll be exploring those now. I was just really hopeful that something positive would come of this appointment. I’m sorry that you had a similar experience, too
Oh no… is there another psychiatrist you can go to? The one I go to is the closest I have, so I’m kinda stuck with him. I just really don’t like him tho.
At the time I got the referral I didn’t have a GP, so he was just a government psychiatrist. Like, not to knock our system of socialised medicine, but it could use some TLC in terms of more funding, I’m sure.
But I have a family doctor now, so I think maybe I’m going to coordinate between him and my psychologist? It’ll be a slower process but at least it’s something.
Four years of perphenazine made miserable.meds wise I have taken more than it should have. That moment of uncertainty about your life hopefully its just a passing through the damn aps ads.
I’m cutting out caffeine, I think it’s been mucking with my sleep. I’ve been forcing myself to be social. Melatonin + white noise has helped me crash at night, great advice guys
I’m feeling good today, been feeling better over the last couple days, but I know it’s only temporary. There is a feeling in my gut like something bad is going to happen. I’m debating cancelling my psychologist appointment. There just doesn’t feel like there’s any point. I know she’s not going to believe me either. I don’t know what I believe either, anymore.
I’m just really tired. I feel like I’m getting worse, quickly. I miss being positive and bubbly
