You know, we're pretty screwed when our lives can come down to a set of numbers on a medical record chart. I'm going to meet with my psychologist who's in private practice and we're going to formulate an action plan. He was the one I called when I found all of this out, and he was very supportive and helpful, though he didn't seem to think I had much recourse.

This has weighed on my mind so much. I think that one reason I don't want to tell my husband is that then whatever problems, issues we have, etc., could end up coming back to my "personality disorder" which I don't really think exists. I just think he doesn't really know me.

I'd love to confront him on it, just to see how he feels about my knowing what he said. I'd love to say to him, how can you even be a doctor if you think that someone is "hopelessly lost." I'm not lost - I'm right here. I wonder would he be remorseful or not even care. Not to mention, what he'd add to my chart afterwards, "she was combative, overly concerned with descriptions of herself in her chart" who knows.....

I don't have any current appointments scheduled and am a terrible liar - though I've thought of scheduling one to say that I quit and then a second one to tell him that I know. Can psychiatrists smell lies? ;)
