Dr appt, part 2

Can I just say: BEST DR APPOINTMENT EVER! Seriously, Dr Sean is awesome! He totally listened to everything I had to say and took me seriously and seemed really concerned about helping me. And I didn't even have to be underweight to warrant his attention! For reals, we talked for almost an hour, going over my history and meds and symptoms and all.
Even though he is a family doctor, Dr Sean seems alot more knowledgable then alot of psychiatrists I have seen. I feel totally comfortable about him handling my meds. At one point he started talking about wanting my records from University hospitals, but I had to but the stop on that. I explained that they hate me there as much as I hate them, so anything they wrote about me is probably evil lies. Actually, Corey, my old therapist, let me read the discharge summary thay they sent to him, and it was full of crap. They claimed I was purging in treatment which was bs. The thing was, I stopped gaining weight and they couldn't explain it and wouldnt take my word for it that I was not purging. They took away all my priviledges and everything. It was horrible. but I digress...

I just don't want Dr Sean to think I am naughty and uncompliant (hate that word). Anyway, he was agreeable to not getting the files from university hospitals so it's all good.
The only thing that was a little iffy is that somehow I came away from the appointment with a new med. Buspar. In addition to the other four that I was hoping to taper off so I can eventually have another baby. I guess it's ok though. I mean, my anxiety has been a little out of control lately. And its not for forever.
Well, I have to go make dinner. Hope you all had a good day.

I'm so glad you've found a doctor that listens to you and takes you seriously. It's important to feel heard. I'm also glad you are taking another med if it will help your anxiety - and like you said, it's not forever.
