I see an APRN under a psychiatrist. She’s very knowledgeable even though she’s not a psychiatrist herself.

Additionally my pdoc writes and signs my depot cardex (schedule sheet for my depot injections which the nurses administer). My nurses sign this cardex after every depot

I see my VA pdoc every two months. I see my VA CPRN every two weeks and she gives me my depot injection.

I see a psychiatrist every month.
GP doesn’t want to touch me with a ten-foot pole.
