Good, and thanks. My old one thinks I'm coming back, though. What do you say? And do you ask for another script to tide you through until you get in to another physician? I was with my first pdoc with a dx of major depression for 10 years (I mean I had it, I don't know what his was). Then we moved for a year, before moving again to where we are now. We have been here for 18 months and plan to stay until retirement in about four years. I've never wanted to leave my prior pdocs--all two of them. I feel sort of embarrassed about saying, "listen, I'm not comfortable with you anymore, and I'm trying to find a new doctor. Will you please give me enough medicine to last me until I do? Thanks for all your help--I really appreciate the time and effort you've put into working with me--I know it hasn't been easy."
Did you interview your pdocs before you connecected with one? I didn't have a chance to do that when we moved. I hope it doesn't turn into a search. Just whose feelings am I not wanting to hurt here? Jeeze. We do employ our doctors, do we not?
