Can anyone help me? I saw the new psychiatrist in my area and he just doesn't seem to listen to what i'm saying. I saw him for the first time on Wednesday, my daughter, who sees me more than anyone else, as she lives with me came along to my appointment for support. After about an hour I walked out extremely upset just feeling that he hadn't been listening to a word I had said. My daughter quickly followed and I asked her was it me? Had I been unreasonable, my daughter told me that I hadn't and that the psychiatrist just hadn't listen to either myself or what my daughter had to say. I've been even more upset, anxious and my mood is very low, since seeing him. Do I have the right to ask to see someone else and if I do make this request will it change the way I am treated by the mental health team? I am really confused, scared and upset, my moods really low and I need some advice. Can anyone help?
