I am luck, may therapist is great, guiding and supportive not at all pushy.
My Psychiatrist is an other wonderful DOC. she is also an MD. Listens, works with my physical problems and meds well.
I know this awfully difficult.
We all have to be our own advocates. I went through 10 neurologists before I found the one I am seeing now. I started in 2006 and found this one last year. Chronic pain every day., Just last month, my pain is staying at a 3-4 instead of a 7-10.
Self-compassion was the key for me. It helped me realize that I am worth the hard work to find the doctors and care give that work for me. I would tell a friend the same thing. so why would I not be worth same?/www.mindful.org/how-to-be-a-better-friend-to-yourself/
I wish your courage, strength and peace
