I wee rant about doctors

So I haven’t been to Headspace for a while, but to clear things up, my therapist was on holidays so I didn’t feel comfortable going by myself.

In saying that, today, my doctor said a few things that pissed me off quite a lot.

  • Well, medication is not the only thing you need, you need to keep going to therapy.

My therapist has never come off so defensive; I shouldn’t have to step out to another therapist if my therapist is away dealing with personal issues and she was the first to criticise the Doc for incinuating that I wasn’t doing enough

  • I don’t condone the use of valium…

You prescribed it to me, then proceeded to tell me I wasn’t trying hard enough to keep well and depending on it.

I have been taking one or two valiums a week (so less than what he said I could), I have been practicing the coping strategies that work for me whilst I didn’t have my usual councellor. I was also very prepared go to Headspace if anything got worse.

Basically, I feel so damn invalidated my that doctor, after the things that cause stress have accumulated ridiculously over the past month and yet I haven’t actually harmed myself. I have never been so happy for a doctor to tell me he’s leaving in a week, because this appointment became one of the worst I’ve had in a long while.

What is your favorite series of books?
This is difficult, because, I never read Harry Potter, LOTR, etc., because I was scared of not understanding bits and pieces of them or not appreciating them as much as everyone else, so I sort of steered clear of major series (and still do… damnit anxiety)
Through High School I did read Wicca, Kate Tiernan, and absolutely loved it.
Some parts of the Wiccan lifestyle were a wee bit off, but, twas based around popularised culture that Wicca seems to have phases of so I sort of didn’t mind.

When was the last time you laughed so hard your stomach hurt?
Wow, umm, I think I’ll go with my birthday dinner, when I invited a sweet little friend who somehow ended up seated among my guy mates and a waiter dropped her dessert on her.
