am i the only one who has only has terrible experiences with psychiatrists? ive done alright with therapists and even the psychologists that diagnosed me with autism/adhd/ptsd but for some reason the actual people in charge of My Medication and therefore Half Of My Recovery just never seem to understand me/what im saying! and none of them have felt comfortable medicating me for my ADHD when i have been diagnosed with it!! sick of being told i just need to “try harder”! I guess this isnt really a question but im wondering if things are this messed up everywhere or if ive just had bad luck with psychiatrists??
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Hypertensive Heart Disease
I’ve only dealt with one psychiatrist so far but they were really dismissive and uninterested in my struggles. Said I didn’t really have any problems, I just wanted attention so I didn’t deserve help. I would say you’re not alone!
Oh boy I have only met bad psychiatrists. It is so frustrating to keep meeting them because i am sure there are great ones out there. One kept talking over me so I couldnt even speak he wanted to ‘guess’ my symptoms it seems. Like he couldnt handle a self aware person. And the same one hyperdosed me on addictive drugs after a test told him not to give me them. These doctors are shitty sometimes and I hope if you are able to find a new doctor you end up with someone who does their job right. I am sorry for everyone who deals with this shit it is too common to have any excuse. You need help, not ableism.
i have yet to meet a good one. i gave up years ago but 4 different psychiatrists told my mom they "couldn't help me anymore". they would send me on to the next and after 4 i just gave up. its really hard. one of them would raise the medication dosage every time i would ask him to lower it, resulting in multiple heart diseases. i was also called "lazy" and told to try harder, even though i was putting in all i could.
I had a really good one once but she pissed me off so that was ruined and then the last one I had told me that I should get over myself because my condition is not going to change or go away ever and that I need to stop acting like I’m crazy cuz I’m not. It got me so mad like in that case why tf did I come here for? meanwhile he’s sitting there in slippers sweatpants and tshirt.. and this was a “legit” place. They get me so mad like Watever you’re a doctor blah blah I guess but they assholes about it..
Ya it’s messed up everywhere
I had a great psychiatrist but he’s moving now :(. I spent a long time researching and seeing reviews. That’s the best I can say though
