> I understand that it can be VERY challenging finding a doctor whom you trust and are comfortable working with. That said, managing your own illness is extremely difficult particularly when you are sitting right in the middle of it. Any doctor worth their salt should be someone who can help guide you through the tough parts and answer any questions you have regarding treatment with respect, patience and honesty. What is troubling to me is that you seem to be excusing her utter ineptitude as a medical professional and shouldering a good part of the responsibility that falls squarely in her lap. She signed up to be a shrink (which I will admit is not an easy job) and you have every right to demand to be treated in the same fashion as she would like to be treated if she or someone in her family was in your situation. Just because you have been through many medication protocols does not mean she doesn’t have to keep track of exactly what and how much she is prescribing for you. This is a PRIMARY function of her job and if she can’t do this accurately, then there is a serious problem -- not to mention all of the liability issues she is exposing herself to.
> There are ways around this and there are many different types of professionals in the mental health field that can prescribe – psych nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, some advanced practice psychologists (depending on where you live), gp’s, etc. Take yourself and your money elsewhere and get the care and respect you deserve.
