For those of you new on the site I have an ongoing story about my psychiatrists. Notice that was plural. I started getting psychiatric help in 2002. During those 16 years I have had 9 psychiatrists . Many moved on to new jobs, 3 retired and one I fired. Well here we go again. In early January I will be seeing my 10 psych dr. Man do I get tired of retraining these drs. LOL I will let you know how this one does.

It’s like a carrousel, where you get on but can’t get off . Finding the perfect psychiatrist has proven elusive for me .
I gave up & have been given better help from my integrative GP. He’s helping me withdraw from my antidepressant ( my second attempt!) extremely slowly & leaving the timing of my cuts up to me . So far so good
You know dear F/H that my wish for you is peace of mind & a pain free life .
You have helped so many over the years & deserve nothing less that .
Can’t wait to hear your review on this new Psychiatrist, keeping my fingers crossed for you dear friend .
Wagtail.:-)

I second Wagtail's sentiments towards your predicament. 

 

You give so much to the forum, and rarely do we have the opportunity to reciprocate. 

 

Here in the UK, you will typically see a different case worker each time you have an appointment, so the same story applies. I must have rehashed my "Duloxetine story" to about half a dozen psy workers in the last 2 months. My only consistency is the forum!

 

Thoughts are with you as you contemplate undergoing the retraining once again.

Best of luck to you Fishinghat.

I know that I was so incredibly lucky to find the best psychiatrist ever right from the get go after a nasty spell with by GP. I still see the GP but all my Rx's are run by the psychiatrist first before taking.

I know I do not comment much but I still keep an eye out for what is happening here. I cannot believe that it is almost been 6 years since my ordeal began and although I know that I will never be the person I was before the Crapalta, I am doing better these days.

My love to all

Nancy

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the good wishes. Actually, thank God, I am not too concerned. If I don't think I can work with them then I will just fire them and get another one. But I can say I have been blessed with a few really good ones and some that were sort of useless but I could work around them. lol

After the way you guys in the UK describe your system my problems seem small. I can't believe the red tape and rollercoaster you have with your system.

Thanks again, you all are very special.

    5 months on cymbalta, scary side effects, never felt good.
    Needed understanding and support, and a place where I was not alone. To read others stories and realizing that I was not the only one going through all that crap.
    In hope that one day, I can return the favors in some kind of way.

My sweet Fishinghat,

I heard this story before and you always managed to find the right one or fire the wrong one.

You have come from so far, I'm not worried about you.

Is it that you are brighter than them and know so much that your presence intimidates them.
I wouldn't be surprised if this was the reason.

If you can't find anyone, I'm here for you(lol), free of charge. I will have to hide Acorn from you though. We all love you as you can see!

You are awesome, Hat! Please let us know how you like #10.

 

If you lived in Florida, I'd give you the name of my pdoc, I love her! I drive 3 hours to see her.
