i always get nervous when i go to the doc. i don't know why exactly but it never fails.
i have a chart that i used to keep track of my moods and thoughts for the month so hopefully that will help him in doing whatever he is going to do

do you think you need a med change? or are you pretty settled.

not sure i would be happy with a constant med change, you would never know what day of the week it was.

good luck though.

i think there needs to be some sort of adjustment. either up the meds i am on or put me on something else....
if this is as good as it gets, it's not very good.
know what i mean?

Hope it goes ok for you.

I hate it as well.....never bloody honest enough me, or I think things aren't worth talking about so I deal with things with no support :(

i can relate...my doctor is cool but the visits are so short. i see him for like 10 minutes ever 5-6 weeks. in my opinion that is not enough time.
i see a clinician too but i want time with the doc.

i don't have much of a support system either....just trying to grind it out alone

Definately, think mine are about right for now, have to see, depends sometimes i think on the amount of stress we are up against, but if they aren't helping when things are not as bad as they could be, then they definately need fine tuning.

yup..i think we need to get it dialed in just right..

thing is i want to feel completely stable and i don't know if that is even realistic..
how good can it get is what i wonder

yeah...what is the point?
do the meds even help?
when i am on them i don't think they do but when i take myself off them i go mad and end up in the hospital..
sometimes i feel that is the only way they will really listen
