You are totally correct here...I dont take this bad at all...it's something i'm been considering for ages. Only reason I stay with this particular gp is he is the only, literally only, dr I have been able to find in the realm of general practicioners that is found of the use of MAOI's. I am on a waiting list for a good MAOI pdoc. If I ditch this guy now what happens when I need to refill nardil? I've been through this with other gp's...they dont want to touch it...as if it's not their problem. I may have to, and believe me I hate this idea as its deceitful, get another gp on the side who isn't aware of my Nardil use.

> Please do not have delusions of ever getting well while under the care of this particular clinician. He is keeping you sick. He is refusing proven treatments. He is refusing FDA approved treatments. He is deciding on the terms of his own bias, not your wellbeing, what you can and cannot do.
> Do not expect to get well while under this person's guidance. It is your decision and choice who's hands you put your life into. I am not trying to be negative or critical so please don't take it that way. I am instead being purely realistic. It is hard enough as it is to make progress with all of the medical profession's options available to us. But when you start cherrypicking that list of options down to a small list, forget it, your chances of life enhancement and health are a lot closer to zero than any other number.

> At the very least, "phrase it" this way...get a second opinion, preferably from someone who has a stronger reputation than the one you are seeing.
