Thank you both Annie and GG.

I've cooled off a little bit after getting in several minutes of righteous indignation as I described it all to my therapist this afternoon! I'm still amazed at the psychiatrist's terrible manners and insensitivity but then I'm the sensitive one in this household so I guess this type of stuff bothors me more. Or, at least I admit to it.

The one good thing that came out of it though is that he does have a firm diagnosis now of bipolar and vascular dementia (early stage). Of course those are not great things to have but there's some relief in being able to have a "known" issue with a name. Also, it's good to know that one of the reasons that many different antidepressants didn't work all that well is because he IS bipolar. It explains a lot and there's some mental relief with that. I also felt that this psychiatrist was much more knowlegeable than the other 4 or so he's seen. I'm hoping she warms up some on the next visit. It's a tough case with both disorders and I've had trouble finding someone with insight into both neurology and psychiatry, especially in network. I guess sometimes progress does come through yucky experiences!

> Thank you for the kind words. I don't know how to respond to your visit. Not pleasant comes to mind. And here I thought she would be full of questions, wrong. Good Luck and let us know how your husband is doing. -Annie
