In reply to Help...after dr apt. feel less hope, posted by chiron on March 29, 2007, at 17:57:52
> I watched the minutes slowly go by today, miserable and hoping that my dr. appointment would give me some hope. Instead I left feeling worse. He gave me the impression that he doesn't think my problems are physical and that I lose hope too easily- but try being depressed over 20 years when you have exhausted almost every med. How could I feel like my future looks bright? I feel unstable, hate life, no pleasure, empty, and time is painful.
I don't know if I can give any advice about the medications, but I've also experienced feeling hopeless and worse after seeing a new doctor before. In my case, it was because he put down everything I cared about and basically made me feel that my goals for life were worthless and unattainable.
If you don't like something about your doctor, even if it's small things, you always have the right to stand up for yourself or find a different doctor you get along with. Never forget that you're the one hiring him for his services and you deserve what you're paying for.
