I have seen shrinks for over 20 years now and the other day, mine went absolutely ballistic on me.  I had slurred speech which I ALWATS have ( neurologist says it's from tardis dyskinesia), but for some unknown reason my doctor starts yelling at me for abusing my meds...the more I denied it, the madder he got.  I reminded him that my husband contols my drugs ( eliminate risk of suicide) and he accused me of somehow having a "stash" of drugs somewhere.  I have never had a doctor lose it with me before, and I was shocked, hurt and angry.  I am a compliant patient. I am not sure I want to go back to him. He was very, very nasty to me and he based his whole tirade on my slurred speech which as I said earlier is always there
Much to my frustration).  So...what to do?  I will tell you this week I HATE being bi-polar.

hello. sorry to hear about your bad experience with your dr. a few monthe ago i had a pain specialist dr. who actually said he couldnt help me and promptly walked out on me. i had only seen him a few times so i didnt actually have a history with him, but i wasw in so much unrelenting pain i guess i appeared desperate to get more drugs. i wasnt. i was just trying to convey to him my over the top pain i was having. i just wanted my pain to ease a bit. i thought maybe there was something else he could do to help me. i have several chronic health problems that cause my pain. ive been to many drs. over the yrs. however most of my drs. ive been with for yrs. no dr. has EVER treated me that way.i guess there are so many people who abuse the system that drs. are so suspicious of anyone who appear drug seeking to them. i dont know what your other options are for drs. if you have other choices you may want to seek help elsewhere. no one should have to allow a dr. to treat them like that. each patient should be treated with dignity and respect. good luck to you.

Can you just use your Nuerologist rather than a shrink? I'd drop him like a hot potato.He's a tyrant not a Dr...

Snowylynn...

It is possible I might be able to use my neurologist...I am definitely gping to check it out.  My doc even called me a liar and if there is one thing I do NOT do is lie. I am an upfront sort of person.  If the neurologist won't do it, guess I will get a referral from him.

At the very least this psych lacks equanimity. I would think the first thing you need to do is get a new psych, and it might help if you be very upfront with how upset you are about this situation. Also state you want to make sure your name is cleared by whatever drug tests you need to do. Plus it would not hurt to have your husband advocate a bit for you here.
Good Luck,

Thanks everyone for validating how I felt (and feel). It gives me strength to do something. At the very least, confront my pscy on his behavior and promptly find someone new. My son works at University of Michigan Hospital as a nurse and I am sure he can direct me thru the right channels to connect with their psych department. Maybe I should have done that a long time ago. They have an excellent reputatiion. I will not tolerate anyone accusing me of abusing my meds.

I commend you for sticking up for yourself. I've learned a long time ago that just because someone is older, more experienced, holds a degree, or whatever the case may be...it doesn't always make them right. You are the only one who truely knows what's inside you. The dr's just play guessing games. I know it's easy to feel lost and worse when you're simply looking for guidence from someone you should be able to trust as well as have them trust in you in return. Continue to be strong, when all else fails Let your spirit be the light in the darkness.
