> Thank was sort of sudden/unexpected (at least on my end).

ah, and then a bit of a shock, as well.

> I think it is a lot like grieving..this person was in your life and now they won't be.

yeah. and especially when you don't have any say in it, it can come as a shock, yeah.

> I have a new pdoc but the old pdoc represented safety and stability for me. Also, a bit of an old-school pdoc in that they met with me for longer sessions. And always calling back promptly and having a strong system in place in case of emergencies.

ah. it can be hard when you have built up a good relationship, over time. mutual understanding and genuine rapport (of the sort that can never be established in a check-box fashion in a one-time interview).

> My illness is serious enough that I will always need a pdoc due to the complexity of my med regimen. This is a little scary as there seems to be a shortage of psychiatrists, at least where I am.

yeah. there are is a shortage of good psychiatrists... everywhere, i think.

have you started meeting with anyone? can your old one refer you to a colleague (who is likely to be like-minded)? i don't know how feasible it may be to shop around...

i do understand about stability. that was important for me, too.
