Sounds like it's the doc to me. What happens when you do talk about lack of progress "next time"? Has he explained what progress he thinks is being made? If he doesn't take your perceptions seriously, he sounds like he might be the wrong doc for you. But I'm also wondering if you've been able to mourn the loss of your relationship with the previous doctor and whether feelings about having to change are getting in the way of "clicking" with the new doc. Just because it's such a hassle to change and start over, I'd want to think about that before leaving this one. But if he isn't willing to deal with WHATEVER it is that's making you not click, I'd say go with your gut feeling about whether you should change..

> I just don't feel like we are 'clicking'. I spent this week staying alive, not great. I finally called to say i was in trouble ( am coming off drugs) and that we had to talk. He agreed and said we could talk at our regular appt in two days. I have never called him for HELP before - just I wanted advice and TLC, not to confirm my appt time(that has been the same for months) So where do I go from here? I've told him that I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything.
