I feel so terribly hurt. I messaged my pdoc again as usual, asking him two questions and instead of getting answers he said I mustn’t whatsapp him anymore unless it’s emergency. Just out of the blue like that. So I had to face horrible fact that I have been a burden to him and to everyone. My husband seemed to take his side and gave me some tough talking about my anger and other problems. I feel so ashamed and evil. I hate my guts. I wish I could be a good person a better person
If it weren’t for you guys I’d have nobody to talk to about my sza.
Psychiatrists have a huge workload. It’s not that you’re a burden. It’s that it’s not fair for him to give time outside of appointments to only certain people and not to others. And he doesn’t have time to talk to everyone outside appointments. No need to feel burdensome. Just try to understand his workload.
Well for me we don’t have contact with our psychiatrist at all apart from the session.
I know wat u mean. I wish I wasn’t ill I’d feel less of a weight to ppl. You are a good person though. Don’t get that mixed up
I have an appointment once every two or three months, for about 5-10 minutes on the phone with my pdoc. I try not to bother him with anything unless it’s really important. Don’t feel bad that’s just standard for most people. Can you do tele-health? You can set up an appointment for him to call you if it is something important.
I can relate though. I love to talk to people and when I have an idea it’s easier to externalize it than internalize my thoughts. Some things we just can’t control. some things we can work to improve.
