Just a followup -- my psychiatrist is an interesting guy; he's done some very different things in his life, and actually practiced as a GP for years before going into psychiatry. He told me that he found being a GP somewhat unsatisfying (too general), and was fascinated by psychiatry, so he went back and trained as a psychiatrist when he was in his 50s. He's only been a practicing psychiatrist for a few years, but seems to genuinely love it, and enjoys discussing the details of brain function, how meds work etc. I'm a research biologist, so I get into this too and always investigate the meds in depth, so we have some pretty interesting discussions.

Anyway, I thought I'd mention this, in part because I guess my pdoc is kind of a "hybrid", with lots of experience as a GP but excellent skills as a psychiatrist. I just dread the day he retires (which he is starting to think about), but at least I believe that I can trust him to refer me to someone sensible if and when that happens.
