I started seeing a new pdoc the first of July.  I instantly felt comfortable with her.  The last one I went to, I stayed with for 4 years and was never comfortable with her.  Now I am feeling a bit uncomfortable and not even sure I want to go this week to see her.  I know, this isnt much notice since I see her on Wed.  The last time I was in, she told me to make sure I get all the samples I need til the next time.  She is doing that for me on some meds as I am unemployed.  She said the front office was very busy.  Twice, in the past I have called down there ahead of time to see if I could go and get some samples because I had forgotten at my appt.  I called ahead of time to give them time to get them ready.  I told her that at the last appt. and she said they (front office is just too busy).  Well, here is why I am not sure I want to go.  I meant to ask her something at the last appt.  So I wrote a letter and faxed it.  I have a good friend that sells Reliv and gave me 2 cans to use and asks sometimes if I am using it.  I tried it at one point but then I started thinking I should find out if I could use the stuff with my meds.  I emailed Walgreens and they replied they can interfer with some meds and to talk to my dr.  Well, I wrote down all the ingredients and I told her she could just call me when she had time.  I have never heard from her.  I am afraid that she will get on my case about faxing that to her about that when they are so busy.  I hate to change but I do want to feel important too.  I went thru a period of having chest pains and she had made mention of one of the meds could cause heart problems. I was having chest pains.  I called twice to see what to do and stopped taking all the meds til I heard from her.  I never did hear from her.  I ended up calling my pcp and going in to see him.  When I went in to my next appt. I asked her about that and she said that was for my pcp to deal with.  That is perfectly fine, but I was under the impression it was caused by one of the meds.  I kind of wished someone in her office would have just called me and tell me to call my pcp.  That made me feel unimportant.  Anyway, I am off that med and have no chest pains at all.  Anyone ever have these type of feelings or any ideas?

I would not let the letter bother you. What is done is done and worrying about possible future events will drive me crazy. The truth be told most of my fears about what will happen never materialize. If the doc says something about it, let her know that you were just trying to give advance information and make sure you were not complicating your healthcare treatment. It doesn't suprise me that you have not heard back from the office. I always wait until an appointment to ask my questions regarding my meds and interaction concerns. It is difficult when depressed to be patient and wait until the best time to ask questions. I know that when I am in the depths of my depression, I want help and I want it NOW! Try not to worry about the appt. on Wed. Good luck and I hope you get the answers you are looking for.
By the way, make sure to ask the questions you did in the faxed letter at your appt. If you were concerned enough to fax the letter, the need for the answers should still be there on Wed.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
