Can someone helo

Posted , 3 users are following.

So i reach out for some helo and get a counselor who ends uo at first talking about himself and in the second session tells me im too negative and need to speak with a more intense therapist. The same  person actually right before that tells me it appears i have a bad experience with a therapist as i dont trust them. What was that? So i call another one, a dr. As well as a therapist who then tells me to make sure my hormones  are okay as at my age they arent. I told my doctor and he didnt really seem to be interested in that as he checked the standard t ones and they were normal. So i finally find two physchiatrist in my area and both are filled up. I did get a call back from one who said she can evaluate me but people seem to like to talk and she has no time for that. What do i now really. I feel like im wasting all my time on these too busy, leave me alone kind of doctors. Everyone says to reach out for help but only on the internet do i see prudent doctors discussing what needs to be done. Im trying to do this on my own. I am getting by but getting by is all i am doing so far. I metabolize drugs very slowly which leads me to end up with side effects  then usual. Which annoys doctors more because if you arent in the typical average area of metabolizing medications they dont work as planned. Then i have to deal with them thinking im making up the side effects. Which i do not and would not. I have bad gerd and some medicines really destroy me. My own dr who i have known most of my life knows this but says it is very hard to treat me, he understands the situation but its hard when it comes to certain meds and chronic health issues because of the way my body reacts. I feel frustrated. I have seen alternative doctor years ago but now i cant afford one anymore. I feel like a burden to others and myself. I myself am annoyed with how my body reacts to medicines and the fact i have oanic attacks is frustrating. I feel very alone in my journey thru this. My husband has never experienced an anxiety attack so he has no clue whats going on and just feels im ruining my life and everyones around me with my condition. There are days i feel i can push through and do meditations and self talk a lot. I have prayed and i am trying but i need to see results.

    Hi, when I read your counsellor said "you are too negative" I LOL'ed. that's ridicuolus!! What a horrid counsellor!!! Don't let them make you feel bad--- he/she is terrible!!!! unprofessional and cruel.

    And as for wasting the psychiatrists' time -- you are most certainly not. That is their job and they will want to see you. It just takes time. Keep your chin up, you are doing very well. Don't give up! smile

      Im seeing some wiman physchiatrist in the am but she already told me she has no time to talk and my primary doc feels im so sensitive to meds he diesnt feel he is capable of properly treating me. There ar only two in my area. Lots of counselors pretending to know how to handle people with oanic attacks but just had a terrible ine exprience. That actually never happened before in my life. Many dont know what a panic attack feels like i think they think they do but they seem to think its just worrying. I have been getting the whole oanic thing the last fuce weeks. And everyday exprience and im so happy when it wears off but it makes me thing im going binkers completly and im really trying. I breathe and tell myself it will pass. This is hard. If i go to a place they said you must be suicidal and i dont want them saying i am cause then they will drug me up and nit care abiut my actual ohysical ailmest of gerd, and optic nerve injury and the meds will sicken me if they dont agree with my body and no ine will listen cause they will assume im nuts anyway. Scary oicture i have paunted but i was in a place for three days in1993 when i withdrew from the klonopin too fast but i was newly pregnant and toung and strong but i did see how others were treated and they are very understaffed in thise places so you have to be very respectful and do what they say and thy dont tend to listen to anyone cause they are iver worked themselves. So i am trying to hold it together and i dont understand why i am having oanic attacks every day cause that never happened. Maybe they will tell me i have a really mental disorder or im psychotic niw..i dont know just fed up with all of this. My older daughter just nited she would not be a le to care for me when im older as she has to have a life as well, which was interesting as she has had anxiety attack here and there in her life so she knows what i am going through. My husband just calls it nuts and no emoathy guven cause he said it effects his life and i know it does. I dont know.

    Don't give up looking for a good Dr. I totally understand as I've had my experiences also. Stay strong. If a therapist discusses himself like what I experienced last year, run. I retired him immediately. I'm not interested in him/her. I'm there for me. There are good Dr. But u may have to drive a little further like I do but its so worth it. Good luck
