Multiple Psychiatrist Disorder

Here is a link to an article I wrote with tips on how to talk to your doctor about your symptoms:

Breaking Down the Communication Barrier Between Psychiatrists and Patients

I will use these tips as I experience getting acquainted with yet another psychiatrist. Last week my former doctor dismissed me because she has been unable to find a winning combo of medication to treat my illness.  She feels she has reached the end of her expertise and so she gave me the number to call for another place that can hopefully help me more. I called the new clinic this morning (actually, my fiance called for me because I was too nervous), and they don’t make appointments for new patients. Instead, they have certain days and times that you have to walk-in and it’s a first come, first serve kind of deal. So basically, I’m guessing I will have to wait in a crowded room and may or may not be seen by someone. This is terrifying to me, but it’s the only option I have left, so that’s what I will do. My fiance said it may be next week before we can go. So survival mode continues…
