Has anyone ever had this horrible experience I’m having with doctors that won’t take patients that are treatment-resistant with major depression?
I’m fine and better without an antidepressant or all of the combos of antidepressants that I had tried.
I can’t even safely take antidepressants because they actually made me actively suicidal in my early 40’s.
But, I still have needed prescription sleeping pills to sleep even for 4 hours and I still have needed anxiety medication especially now while I watch my cat daughter, my only child, suffering most days and deteriorating from her very old age and her medication side effects for her scary hyperthyroid condition.
But, I can’t get a new doctor to take me as a patient, and obviously, I do need one still, but the doctor I have been going to repeatedly and unmistakably treats me horrible -demeaning-laughing in my face about my disabilities, so I obviously can’t put myself through that with him any longer.
And to make matters even worse - when my current sleeping pill and anxiety pill prescriptions run out, I have had fear instilled in me by multiple doctors and my pharmacist that I will experience unbearable withdrawal symptoms for a very long time since they are both controlled substances that I was put on since 2019. And not one doctor wants to do their job and even monitor me as I come off of these medications. #Doctors #Psychiatrists #MedicalProfessionals #TreatmentresistantDepression #CheckInWithMe #MajorDepression #ChronicDepression #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Insomnia #Anxiety
