Squiggles, I posted this in an above post.
There must be something wrong with me. Today my pdoc fired me. He was a new doc for me, someone that finally gave me a good dx. I saw him 4 months ago, twice and then had to wait until a few weeks ago to see him. We talked about me trying therapy first and went over all of my stuff. He didn’t appear to remember a lot of my stuff from the first two visits but he said he wanted to see me again last time, so today I went. He said he respected my try at therapy but that I ask too many questions and it is a waste of his and my time. He seemed like he had decided to fire me before I came.
I told him I am having problems with lunesta and I was dizzy, and nauseated and had vivid drams., and that it appears a lot of people are too and that I thought I had some lithium withdrawal. He said “THERE is NO such thing.” He told me I was against all meds and I told him I was afraid. Basically, I was making everything up and I wonder if I have been? Am I just so ill as I don’t know it? The funny thing is I went there ready to give meds a try and he wouldn’t hear it. He said “go get a second opinion” “you don’t listen to my recommendations” “We go over the same thing, and you ask questions about meds”
I told him I hadn’t started the meds he suggested yet and we hadn’t even gone over the dosage, He said we “did go over that” The guy gave me ambien to try last time instead of lunesta and then says “I didn’t know you were on lunesta” today WHAT??? I was shaking and stunned as I left the office. I guess I am some big screw up. Where do I go now?? I am alone.
