Cause apparently mine doesn't give a rats butt.

I went into the office tuesday complaining that i'd been crying for 3 days straight. I couldn't even be alone with my children tuesday night. Apparently I'm very depressed but when I tell my doc that i've been crying for 3 days and that i'm depressed, he tells me that there is nothing wrong with me and that maybe crying will do me some good. Basically he has no heart and could care less about how i'm feeling. So now after being with this doctor since february, i'm now having to find a new one and it makes me sad.

On behalf of us all of us here at the Healing well...What a JERK he is!! You have my permission to be angry as well as sad! I don't blame you one bit for considering to find a new doctor!

GEZ...my son's Doc is "cold" too. I've talked to my son's Psychologist about him and he says there are so many jaded money hungry Psychiatrists out there it's rediculas!

And then you're suppose to carry on this hunt when you're depressed enough as it is!! That too sucks!! This whole illness sucks...:-( Now you have to pick yourself up and move on and HOPEFULLY find someone who cares. But if you're like my son, all you want to do is crawl under the covers and hide from it all.

I've found that our Psychiatrist is the doctor we argue with. Yes,I really have to get tough with him, he too is "cold-hearted". BUT our PSYCHOLOGIST is the doctor we tell our woes too. He then encourages us on how to get tough with the other doc. LOL. Sometimes you have to accept their roles for what they are and don't expect your PSYCHAIRIST to care as much as the other does...

Can your husband or someone else go in with you and "get tough" with this guy?? The thought of my son having to stand up alone for himself with our doc is abserd! YOU, even as an adult, shouldn't have to "fight" by yourself when you are clearly in major distress! Even someone to get on the phone and "law down the law" would help! Sometimes you gatta YELL to be heard and if you need someone else to do the yelling for you SO BE IT!!!

I'd call right NOW and say...

"Hey, I NEED you to DO something for me NOW!! I've got kids to take care, I've got LIFE to take care of and I'm REALLY HURTING HERE!! I NEED SOMETHING MORE than what I'm getting from you now. Do you understand????? You've been a really good doctor (lie to him if you have to) but I NEED you to be a better one or I might do something that the both of us will regret! Do you understand what I mean?"

You need to MAKE him care. OR you need to get someone to speak up for you and make him care. Be polite but be really REALLY firm and assertive. Then tell him if he can't help you then you'll find someone who can if he again dismisses you. Sometimes you have to do everything short of slapping him across his face.

Good Luck.

A thought just occured to me...are you approaching Peri-menopausal age?? I wonder what happens to Bipolar women when they start going thru the change???? I'm going thru it right now (I think) and I found myself crying all thru the day and I DON"T have Bipolar disorder. How much MORE might these symptoms surge in someone who has Bipolar?!!

I myself never went to the doctor for a diagnosis of Peri-menopause (pre-menopause). BUT I started taking 2000mgs per day of "Evening Primrose Oil" and it helped me SO MUCH!! I'm fine now. Maybe you could present this senario to your doc if you think it might apply. Keep in mind I don't know how old you are...I'm 47.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.


I'm having issues with alot of things. The thoughts that i never used to have or that never bothered me now seem to get to me. Like watching medical dramas or stuff like on discovery health.. but now i can't even sit through one of those without having to change the channel. Man this has got me screwed up...

about the menopause thing, i'm only 27. However I had my tubes tied and after I had that done my PMS is alot worse than it used to be. I've also found that my depression during PMS is 200x worse than normal. And i think thats where my crying spells came from. But i'm still finding a new doctor because it seems like I need to be on something, but this isn't working at all :(
