Hi Karen :)

I think you and your doctor have a big problem in the communication department. He obviously doesn't remember his previous suggestions to you, and you're not calling him on his conflicting decisions. When he mumbled something you didn't understand, maybe you should have ask him to repeat it again and explain it in more detail.

As for Inderal, I haven't heard of it. Maybe someone else has some advice on that. Did you ask him what it was and what he hoped it would do for you? It's possible you may be feeling too overwhelmed to even question your doctor, let alone criticize him, but if my doctor mumbled something and then went on as if it didn't matter, I'd be demanding answers!! "YO, DOC!!! Speak up for I cannot HEAR you!" Heheh. :D

Would you believe my last doctor told me NOT to spend my time researching too much on bipolar? When I called him on that, he said that it would be in my best interest seeing that all the information on the web was wrong and misleading, not to mention that the books I've been reading are also wrong. Seems he thought he was the ultimate authority on this, but I think he wanted to keep me in the dark, did not want me asking the questions that I did, and just sit back quietly while he prescribed my medication and followed his commandments. At our last session he said we had a personality conflict and hoped we could get pass that. Now tell me, what kind of psychiatrist, an MD that treats people with all kinds of mental and personality disorders, could have a personality conflict with someone? That experience had to top them all for me, because I am so easy to get along with. A bit opinionated maybe, but always welcoming other opinions as well. Argh!! I know how you feel, Karen.
