So I met with my new doctor yesterday. I think I like him, he was different than the others. He listened to me, wanted to listen to me, asked the right questions. When I told him about my false memories he asked “Is there a story line?” Yes! And he actually wanted to hear about them. So many other psychiatrists are interested only in talking meds…how can they possibly know what’s going on with us if all they care to talk about is meds???
I have a very hard time trusting doctors due to my experience with them in the past, but he finally began to gain some of my trust when I was talking about the feeling of discomfort and unease I feel and he said “The Bhuddists have a word for this” and then we talked about that for a while. He was also astonished that I never really went to high school, as most people are, and said that talking to me he never would have guessed that.
For now we’ve agreed to leave my meds alone but…he’s actually willing to give benzos another chance, which I think is probably a good idea.
I think I like this guy.
I’ve heard on here quite a bit the statement “pdocs are for meds” But, again, if they don’t take the time to speak with you how can they possibly know what’s going on with you??? Good doctors take the time to listen.
