Yes, pseudo,
I think that the psych board also needs a bit more diversity. I think that the current discussions there are great. I'm getting a lot out of them, but if people aren't posting for various reasons, then I suppose i'm missing out on a lot too. That's too bad.

In my case, my pdoc and T work together as a team. I know they talk a lot about my case in my absence, because I often don't have to give them updates on what's going on with the other. Also, they both have access to my records, so they can check my doses, and whether I've been showing up to my appt.s regularly. My T helps me get through my life when I have mushy brain from my meds, and he also has some really interesting ideas about how thoughts & the mind change and adjust in response to medicine. He's not an MD, but he's smart, and seems well-read, and that's good enough for me. My pdoc, on the other hand, is a very kind guy, super funny, and a great listener. He would probably be a good T, I just don't know how deep his training goes in that regard. So I can talk to him about behavior stuff, in addition to what the different drugs are doing.

He freely acknowledges that given my initial interview, the diagnosis of T and pdoc confirm each other and all that- there's still no accurate prediction of how I will respond to any given med. It's trial and error, and he seems to be pretty open to me giving suggestions, which is nice. Oh yeah, and he has samples too! I LOVE samples, it's like going trick-or-treating!!

Oh well- I guess I've blabbed on and on enough about this. I just wanted to put in my two cents that behavior and chemistry and cognition are not easily parsed into "discussion boards". If you come here to get support, why not post in multiple places? Variations on a theme? That way you expose the broadest range of psycho-babble folks to your concerns, and you increase your chances of getting feedback that might give you some choices, some inspiration, or at least a cyberhug
