You are definately not alone, I had a GI who tried to do a colonscopy on me and say I was fine (I woke up during the scope and started strangling him when I told him to stop and he did not), but he did not even get the scope in my sig. I personally have gone thru 7 gi's before I found one who I was even relatively comfortable with, but sometimes he still says stupid things, but he is ok when I say that was a stupid thing to say.
I am big advocate of chronic illness therapy myself (just be aware that it might take a couple of different therapist to find one you like )because being sick sucks in general, and frankly for me I know to schedule a therapy appointment soon after any gi appointment.
I do think you need to find docs you are comfortable with, and don't waste you money going to a doc you don't feel comfortable with. I think it might help the doc if you explained you issues with docs and tell them you do not like them so much that you do not tell them what is really going on.
