I went to my dr. today - neurologist - the one who gives me Topomax. He's a real creep if you ask me. Anyway, he wants me to go to a shrink. I see a psychologist, but he wants me to see a shrink now and doesnt want me to go above 200mg a day UNLESS I see a shrink. That's the deal, he says. The way he talks to people is enough to put you in a flood of tears, I swear, Im not kidding. When I mentioned I dont think Im losing weight, he shoots back that's not why I have you on this! I shrunk back against the chair. That's how he makes you feel. Then he says well, people lose weight on low doses, so I dont know what's wrong with you. Isnt that a nice way to talk to a patient???

So I dont know what to do now. So unless I can find a shrink who will take Workers Comp and give me Topomax. Im even more depressed than Ive ever been. I dont see ANY light at the end of the tunnel now. I dont know why Im not losing anything. Im terrified to weight myself. Some people say I look like I have lost, but I dont feel like I have. And that's making me feel worse.
