Re: Fired pdoc, told T none of her business (long) Poet

I'm sorry you're having a hard time with this right now.

The first thought that came to mind after reading your post is this: Even though you may not trust your pdoc (yet), do you trust your T enough to tell you the truth? If so, then perhaps you can try to share with your T what really happened and why, and then allow the two to speak with the caveat that your T will honestly tell you what was discussed between the two of them each week (or however often). Perhaps you can even have some say in what specifically your T can tell your pdoc....Perhaps your T will be able to give enough info to the pdoc for him to help you more, but not so much that you feel compromised or uncomfortable. Remember, they are trying to help you and need information in order to do so....Your pdoc isn't trying to "get dirt" on you, or work against you. He works for you, as does your T, and he seems like he cares enough to want to help you more. It could be a good thing that he feels this way, rather than just pushing pills in your lap and not caring enough to know more specifics.

Just a thought....I hope I didn't upset or offend.

Email me if it would help. :-)

Take care,
