I recently saw a consultant psychiatrist in my mental health team. And I really feel she does not want to see me at all.
I saw her 10 weeks ago for severe depression. I'm not functioning at all. I'm not washing , changing my clothes etc. She asked me to take medication and I said I'd think about it.
Roll on to this appointment I agree to start medication. She told me I should have gone to the GP for meds. I don't understand this I thought this was why I referred to her. Anyway she said she wants me to take Venlafaxine. I agree. She says will you make an appointment with the GP for a prescription. I ask her for the prescription (as I'm already there and I will have wait a while for GP appointment) she didn't seem at all happy by this and said she has to go upstairs to fetch her prescription pad from her office. She made me feel like she didn't want to treat me and I was a nuisance. I even felt guilty for making her upstairs. Is her behaviour/attitude odd. Or is it me?
