I realize that you feel betrayed by their conversation, and I agree with the others that you should definitely have a conversation with your psychologist about how you feel. You have the right to speak up for you feelings- that's what you pay them for!

As far as reporting her to anyone- no go, you signed a release. And, frankly, if the psychologist knows that the pdoc is more versed on possible contraindicaitons of meds, he needs to know what you are being prescribed from any and all docs. You owe that to yourself. Only then can the pdoc provide you with the correct meds at the correct dosages, which you are paying him to do- to help you.

I don't want you to feel that I am negating your feelings, however, your feelings of betrayal need to be addressed with the psychologist. If you feel they should have already known you well enough not to disclose without discussing it with you first, make sure they know you are not okay with it, and that you feel they need to work a little harder at understanding YOU. After all, that's the only way they can help, right?

I am afraid of confrontations of any kind, myself, so if you think that you won't be able to have this kind of conversation with the psychologist, do what some other posters do frequently. Write it down and give it to them as you set the next appt with them.

Hope I was helpful and supportive without being too longwinded and preachy...
