Good and bad

Will update more soon, but she agreed to renew my prescription for 90 days. And as long as I have no more health problems, then I get to keep it.

You might think that's great, and I AM very relieved but right now I have to say that I feel like there is a giant axe poised to drop on my head, and ruin everything if I make one wrong step. If I say anything, do anything, I lose my last chance at a successful life.

So how do I deal with a Doctor who I can never really trust? Dunno but willing to accept all and any assvice here.

  1. I don't know the full story, but wish you luck. You should never be with a doctor if you don't trust him. Aren't there ways to get second opinions on the medications, etc?

    This is the original post that describes it. And eventually I can get another doctor who will be my GP, but the reality is that for anyone with ADHD getting a prescription filled and maintained for their medication is almost impossible.

    It is the easiest mental illness to treat, but the one illness no will ever let you trat.

  3. Maybe you could ask your cardiologist and psychiatrist to recommend a GP, who will be willing to work with them. I don't know how you can rely on a doctor who is stubbornly unwilling to listen to you when you outline your best interests. Much luck to you. I hope you will be problem free for the next 90 days and beyond.

  5. So no butting your head against the wall in frustration, or else!

    Glad there was some progress.

  6. i would invest your time into securing a new GP that's just for you. It's the same as searching for a therapist, you meet and greet and ask a few questions and try to get a sense of what theyre about. No sense in just going to a doctor if they arent open to treating you with what you know works. It may be a lengthy process but isnt that better than begging and worrying. I think so. i have absolutely no use for doctors or pharamceuticals beyond antibiotics or a common ailment. if i hear of a good name or dr i will be sure to pass it on.

  7. No advice, just glad that she's agreed to this. It's a start. Hopefully she will see how much this helps you and improves your quality of life and renews the rx after 90 days.

  8. Hahaha, you made sarcastic remarks to me on Julie's blog (WMD's in your uterus?)

    Well guess what - She acknowledged it was her, and the TSA has released the footage in its entirety from every camera angle. Kid was never taken. She's a dirty, dirty liar. Boy, don't you look silly now...

  9. Anon, I have no idea who you are or what you are talking about. Julie had a joke post, I made a funny comment on it. Wasn't referring to you or anyone in particular at all? Although considering my history of miscarriage, my uterus is definitely a weapon of some sort....

    As far as the Nic/TSA story? The only video I saw was heavily edited, and even if it wasn't, I would never believe a word the TSA, or the US government says on any security situation. About confessions? Feel free to talk to the Innocence project. Innocent people confess all the time for lots of reasons. Sometimes, just to get other people off their backs.

    You may not have heard of Maher Arar, but he is the innocent Canadian citizen who was flying through New York and was taken off the plane by the TSA, sent to Syria by them and repeatedly tortured for years until he was released.

    Canada has cleared him, the UN has cleared him, the US government has cleared him, and your own Congress has admitted it was all a screwup, but the TSA and Homeland Security to this day will not take him off the no-fly list and have admitted that they might send him to Syria to be tortured again if he ever flies through US airspace.

    The US government does not respect the rule of law, and it certainly doesn't give a damn if Obama got elected and they are supposed to have "changed", so no, they have all the credibility of a piece of shit on the bottom of my shoe.

    Anyone who criticizes the US or Canadian government is engaged in free political speech, whether it is true or false or a fictional story, and so really, I don't give a rats ass whether or not it's true. She and I and even you Anon, get to say whatever the fuck we want about our governments every day and never ever do we have to prove anything.

    It's called democracy, and it rocks.

    If it gets me the label "Silly", so what! I will gladly stand against a terrorist government that does not respect the rule of law, and I will gladly stand up for the right of anyone, even people I don't know, to criticize that government.

  10. Unbelievable that you've had to fight tooth and nail for the right to get a prescription that helps your so much. It's plain to see that living each day knowing that you could be denied on the whim of this doctor is having a negative impact on your well-being. Getting eaten up inside by such uncertainty is understandable and unfortunate. I know this very well and hope there's a swift end to the ordeal.
