The internist I am seeing is an endocronologist. I hate waiting 2 months to see an endocronologist, only to have my sanity questioned. I might not feel well, but I'm not insane. Being sick dosn't equal=insane. When we go to Pdocs, doctors, specialists, or whatever, we don't come in a position of strength. The extra burden of being considered insane or an hypochondriac is really probably the most depressing thing in world, it makes you feel so hopeless, because I NEED their help, I can't solve hormonal problems on my own.

I know what you mean Garnet about having to be your own expert. Going on an SSRI and deciding to trust my Pdoc is probably the biggest mistake I have ever made, the only time I decided to give up control an have faith in my Pdoc. From now on, when it comes to Psych meds, I will be my own expert and the pdoc will only be the person that prescribes them. If I ever see a pdoc again. I think I'll have to though, to get something that boosts DA.
