      I don't like change either I had a mini melt down when my doctor left without telling me I went through many emotions sadness angriness and self pity. After a couple of weeks I adjusted to it and chose another doctor who is nice but isn't as good as my last doctor.

      I understand. I had the same doctor for quite some time. I even moved away and came back and went back to him again. Then he had to retire because of his health. It was rough finding a replacement. Tbh I still miss him and think about him every time I go to my new doc. 😔

      I know how you feel. Since I've been in my current city, I've been through my clinic changing clinical ownership companies three times and my psychiatrist along with them. I don't do well with change especially if it means changing someone with whom I have developed a level of trust. Do you see a therapist, other than your psychiatrist? I do and talking with her when any changes happen helps me find different things I could try in order to help me overcome my discomfort at least a little bit. One thing my adult daughter, who is on the Autism spectrum, and I have used quite a bit; we call it "The Three Questions" and go something like this: 1) Is this change going to cause the end of the world? 2) Is this going to cause anyone I care about to be hurt? 3) Is this going to cause me physical pain? Unless I'm looking at nuclear war or a zombie apocalypse, the first answer is "no". Hopefully the second question isn't addressing a literal harmful situation to ourselves or others so the 2nd and 3rd answers will also be "no". Mental pain and discomfort hurt like f***ing hell and they also leave scars. One thing I've learned about scars, though, are they show me that I am a survivor and that I am capable of facing down some of my demons.
