    Getting very stressed out with my doctors

    a couple of weeks ago i went to my consultant doctor at the mental health ward of my hospital, for a check up. id barely said five( most of wich he didnt listen to) words to him before he said i think your doing fine ushered me out of the room and said i'll see you in the new year. he did say anything when i told him i wasnt doing well, or that id took myself of my medication (not that i think he heard most of it). so a few days later i had an apointment with my pycopherapist (who actually listens to me and knows iam not doing to well) and i asked him to have a word with my doctor cause it had really stressed me out as he didnt seem to care what i had to say (for a start i came of my medication cause i knew it wasnt working, and i was right i felt no change since. so oviously i wanted to talk about going on medication that works). my phyrapist said that he would. next week i was with me phyrapist again and he said that he talked to my doctor (at the mental health ward) and that my doctor thought i was doing fine (i have the feeling that my doctor didnt listen to him either). so again very stressed out.
    anyway i went to see my gp today (for an unrelated reason) he was saying how he thinks that iam doing better (even though all i asked him for was a repeat prescription for some cream, and i didnt say anything other than that). and when i said "well i dont feel better" he said that my doctor (form the mental health ward) said that i was doing better. so i told my gp "i dont know how he can come to that conclusion when i only saw him for five minutes. unless his f**king psicic". my gp didnt say anything just gave me my prescription so i left.

    when i got home i decided to call the mental health ward and ask if they could get me an apointment sooner. at first the women on the phone said i had one in august so i thought ok thats cool. she then rang back and said that she'd got it wrong it wasnt till january next year. i asked if i could get one sooner and she said that my doctor had left a note saying that i didnt need to and that he thinks iam fine. i said well i need an apointment sooner, she said the only way is to see if my gp will talked to my doctor.

    Why doe my doctor think he can make the judgement that iam doing well when he didnt even speak to me? it seems to me as if they just want to sign me off there books or something. its really starting to p*ss me of.

    so what do i do now?

    Re: Getting very stressed out with my doctors

    I am soooooo sorry for all that your having to go thru....it sounds like a nightmare.....I don't have any real advise (I'm sure others will) I just wanted you to know I feel really bad for what your going thru. It just doesn't make sense why they would treat you this way, but I'm sure your not alone.

    It doesn't make sinse at all and I can just imagine how frustrating this must be for you. Perhaps you should just keep calling until they listen to you. I understand its hard to get an appointment but perhaps if you call often enough they might give in and bring you in again. In which case I would definately write down everything I want to say and tell them you won't leave until you've had a chance to go over your list.
    Good luck. you certainly don't deserve to be treated this way.

    I was just thinking....is it possible for you to change doctors at the mental health place? Maybe you could find someone with a little compassion who will listen to you?

    Hi Steven,

    Just a quick idea here, but maybe you could get your psychotherapist to back you up somehow, perhaps a note from him/her to your gp and/or whoever?

    I don't know if this is good advice or not, but it's something I meself would try if I were in your shoes.

    I don't know if you've made other posts so don't "know you" or anything else except this one post/thread of yours.

    Hi Steve, was reading your post here and got to thinking like the others here about your psychologist backing you up with a letter to the psychiatrist. but now that you have posted that you have to wait three weeks, maybe you could write about how you are really feeling, symptoms ect.. and post it to the psychiatrist, keeping a copy for your psychologist. don't now if it'll make a diff but it's worth a try maybe??

    all the best..

    Could you, perhaps, give your psychotherapist a call and tell him/her what happened? If it's understood how important this is to you, and how much you're suffering as a result of the doctor's failure to hear your pain, your psychotherapist might be willing to intercede for you.
