wouldnt it be nice if the doctors paid as much attention to their anxiety patients as they pay to the drug company sales reps
 
but then these sales reps, who book in and pay as patients are specially chosen to be attractive and interesting, cheerleaders, models  etc often do this work part time
 
in comparison, we poor anxiety sufferers must be boring and a nusiance eyes
recovered former longtime anxiety and panic attack sufferer and helper of other sufferers  but no training or  qualifications in medicine or psychology, any remarks that may be taken as advice must be confirmed with doctor or other health professional

I know that feeling Harry.

It would be nice to go to the doctors as a patient rather then having everything firstly put down to your anxiety and lets 'up the meds'.

I remember once I went to a medical centre as it was the weekend and they diagnosed me with an ear infection and gave me a script. I then mentioned I was suffering post natal depression (many years ago) and the dr took the script out of my hand and decided the pain I was feeling was actually just depression then. mad

i agree harry, i have a doc that i have to travel to get to him, and its hard for me to travel, but i go, just because he will sit and listen and spends time with me and always puts up with my crying ;) i wish everyone had a doc that would spend enough time to actually listen. He says i keep him on his toes and its good for him lol im lucky in that. to bad hes just a plain ole d.o. he could make a good therapist i think.

I'm in the same boat, now I just go to the doctor for the script. I've been to numerous doctors looking for a good one and eventually ended up with the cheapest one. I know more about my meds than he does!

Glad you have a great doc. Just had a lightbulb moment have you tried asking for the earliest availible appt like for next day or so? Or maybe even go in and cause a stink? I am gonna stop before a tirade starts.
