Update on the new pdoc

She doesn’t feel comfortable taking me on as a patient because I have to many problems that are out of control and wants me to find a pdoc to talk to in person… I was so excited and now I’m so disappointed and don’t know what to do… What if I have uncontrollable problems for the rest of my life :sob:

Yes, that would be very frustrating. Is there a different online or telephone one you can try?

@leafy the one I tried is free due to insurance the others wouldn’t be

oh no, well you’ll have to go to one of the ones that are a distance away then. Sadly we need our pdocs.

@leafy I would go back to my over the phone nurse but the meds she picked just don’t work

Can’t you just tell her they aren’t working and you need to try something else?

@Twialine I had tons of switches before I found a combination that got me up and around and feeling better. It’s the nature of the beast.

If you have no confidence in your nurse to prescribe for you and get it right you may have to do some traveling to one of the other pdocs.

oh no. Well, you definitely need one of those pdocs to step in and get you squared away.

Probably going to be until you get the positives under control. That’s a lot of stress on your brain.
