I think I'm someone who needs meds. I've just been frustrated by revolving door diagnoses, multiple pdocs who tell me, authoritatively, that I am THIS DISORDER, then the meds that are supposed to fix that disorder don't work or make things worse, then I read and read, and realize that most of the time they're talking out of their butts.
I found it oddly reassuring to meet a pdoc who admitted that they didn't know anything.
Interestingly, my mom had the exact opposite reaction. She was furious. She wants my doctors to relieve my suffering *now* and thinks it's irresponsible and uncaring to tell someone you don't have the answers. She said, "you've been in therapy for eight f****king years!"
