So, I made a post on here a while back about how my former psychiatrist was basically unresponsive, acted like I didn't need therapy (although I have CPTSD), and that I would need to send him multiple texts to get him to respond because I'm out of meds.
Well, now he's not even keeping our appointments and he didn't respond to my text on Saturday, which basically asked if we were still keeping our appointment for that day. I sent the text 10 minutes after our appointment time.
We were supposed to have an appointment at 1PM. He didn't respond and didn't give me a heads up. But at this point, I wasn't even surprised. This was after a whole month went by. Last appointment with him was back in July.
Some of you told me that I should get rid of him. Others said that I should be patient and more understanding.
Well, I gave him another chance and that was the last straw. Playing around with my mind is toying around with my life.
Found a new psych and she seems great. I'm really hoping she'll be reliable. She was very encouraging, uplifting, and kind.
And it wasn't until after my appointment with her that I realized that my former psych was none of that. He really was just there to dispense meds.
What I really like is that she told me I needed a therapist, which I already knew. I'll be calling the behavioral center tomorrow to set that up.
If this doesn't go well, then I made a list of backup plans. 📋🖊
