I've been having major anxiety and irritabilty the last few weeks (I suspect due to getting used to the new meds and should be temporary last time this happened witha drug change and when I got to a certain dose I was fine). My psych. had given me Vespril but it hasn't done anything. I got so agitated last week that I did SI and the other day I found a better outlet for it and cleaned my friend's house....until 4 am.
I had another bad irritable episode yesterday and my mom told me to call the Dr..so I did. Now the office I go to have several Psych on staff and I don't see just one of them I've gotten 3 so far. They have one of them call me back last night. Well he DID call but he DID NOT look at my file. I explained to him what was going on, about my axiety the SI episode, what meds I was taking, everything. He said I should go to the emergency room. I told him...."Why? I did this 4 days ago its healing fine." I mean...if i were bleeding or did something deep sure, I'd have gone already. I was very quickly getting into another episode of irritation and gave the phone over to my mom. She relayed everything to me....he told her to have me stop taking my wellbutrin!!! We both were like....WHY? ITS WORKING.
Why the heck would he want to take me....bipolar II with major depression off my antidepressants completly. I am so furious, he didn't even have my file...didn't even look at it. If he had he'd see my horrible history of depression and mood swings, history of SI, and that I'm happy with my meds. I mean seriously, why would you call back a patient who's message was "The anxiety stuff isn't working but everything else is" He finally did listen to us after 10 minutes of arguing (I'm getting a script for Buspar later today). But still......eeerrrrggg!
OK I'm done....I feel better.
