i am in the midst of trying to find a new pcp. i started going to one when we moved here andi gave her my whole history which also included the fact that when i went through a very painful divorce about 6 yrs ago i was put on welbutrin for depression. i guess i shouldn't have given her that info cuz when she sent the referral to my nuro it stated that i'd had depression before.
he acted like i was lying about everything and in his report he states he believes i have depression, the only depression i have is caused by the fact i can't get any help or dx. its so frustrating. so, i quit seeing my nuro and my pcp due to this.
i want to go to a dr and not be automaticaly labeled depressed cuz of a past situation, or look at me and say its my weight. i've been heavy for my whole life.
I've experienced a lot of what you've described.. perhaps not the to the degree that you've experienced but as the other poster said.. Lupus pretty much affects you in all different ways.
I understand about the long wait for the doctor too. Isn't it terrible that one has to wait so long to see a specialist? I would keep calling to see if they can get you in sooner. They told me on my first visit that it would be 8 weeks or so but then when I described what was going on, the doc took me the following week.
Hope you get some answers soon.
