Need to find new gyn, dreading it

Posted , 4 users are following.

I’m due for my annual checkup next month.  After a disastrous experience with the gyn I was seeing for the last two years, it’s time to find someone reliable.  On top of my overall anxiety and dealing with all the other messes in life right now, I dread doing this but know I must.  I want a good doctor to help me.  Still can’t decide about asking a doctor about anti-anxiety or anti-depressant medication, too.  Feeling overwhelmed today and dealing with some weird symptoms again.  I have plans today that I’ve looked forward to all week and here I am crying again.  So tired of this.  So sick of not being able to be a reliable person anymore.  ☹️

    my nurse practitioner at the ob/gyn office was a disaster.  Looking for some one new too.  She is an idiot who does not give a hoot.

    Hi Liz, just know it's not that YOU aren't reliable, it's that your physical being is not reliable just now. There is a big difference!! Nobody chooses to feel like physical and emotional hell to avoid doing things they used to enjoy.

    My personal experience is, a mild anti depressant has done wonders for my ability to cope with feeling like hell physically. Instead of getting down and staying there, I get down, but can take a rest then work toward feeling better in some way.

    Thinking of you, and good luck with your new Dr!!
