Hard to get to see a pdoc in my country

I feel it’s almost like I have to threathen suicide before someone will see me.

I applied 3 times and got turned down every time. This is a problem. My regular doctor refuses to do anything advanced when it comes to the meds. I’m not getting a sleepaid from her if I switch meds, which I need.

I’m tempted to ask if I can try to quit, because she can perscribe me a sleep med if I decide to quit AP’s, but won’t combine 2 meds that can interact. I guess they would get in trouble if anything went wrong when they aren’t pdocs.


Sounds bad that.
Ive been denied sleep aid before and told to find other methods.
I hope you get a pdoc.


I haven’t got a pdoc at moment either.

I just see my Gp but she won’t prescribe more than half a imovane a day so I want to see a psychiatrist for my insomnia.

Privately they cost $300 which I can’t afford so I will see if I can apply to see a bulk billing one.

I haven’t had a psychiatrist for about four years.

My psychiatrist in sa should have referred me to someone in my new state but I guess she thought I was stable enough.

I’m pretty stable just the insomnia and some anxiety in afternoon evening n night if I can’t sleep.

Good wishes to us both on getting a psychiatrist.

In our country it’s a long waiting time to see one .

Over a year waiting and that’s for private one but I can’t afford private one.


Thanks. Yeah, guess we need some luck. Seems the demand is ever rising for people needing help. Society must be failing in some way.

im sorry you guys cant find the support you need

when i moved from ma to me i got a pdoc right away cause of suicide attempt

then they saw how ill i was and were able to get me a grant to join the act team which is a mh team that you work close with

i guess part of the reason i got it so quick was because i was becoming hi and told my first therapist here that i was going to kill him cause he was going to call the cops

he was an a hole saying i was to sick to be treated i needed the hospital

but any ways im sorry you cant get the help you need

i hope it will come sooner than later

good luck
