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

Poet, I can really relate. My T, who is usually very gentle, was quite adamant that I see a pdoc in order to continue my work with him. I went through 3 lousy, horrible pdocs that made my situation worse, so I know how you must feel. They were not empathetic at all. I also hated the idea of my T and the pdoc talking about me. It had the feel of 2 grown-ups conferencing about a problem child. That image, however unfounded, stripped me of my strength and dignity.

I almost gave up. Luckily, my 4th pdoc was wonderful. He was a great combination of medically interested and skilled and interested in my therapy. He was nice and very easy to talk to. And since that has been the case, I do not see the need for now for he and my T to speak. I guess I just wanted to say that nice pdocs, to my surprise, do exist.

I had tried to get meds from my PCP, but in my case she was just not all that knowledgable. Really, I think it's best to be treated by a pdoc if a good fit can be found for you.

I think you have to trust your instincts. You could tell your T that you keep them separate so that a pdoc can give you a "clean" and objective second take on your situation. I do hope you can find someone to help.

Just wanted to let you know I understand the pain of the situation you're in. (((Poet)))
