You know, I thought I was doing the right thing. I've seen the same fam. doc. for 3 years for my anxiety. Always completely honest. Sometimes I didn't do well with my Xanax as in I ran short for the month. Let me say, I usually (90% of the time) have chronic daily anxiety. I wake up with it. I thought we had a good relationship. I'd tell him the different techniques I was trying, hot baths, hobby, journaling, deep breath. I really, really tried but I still had to have my Xanax. Nobody was more disappointed than me. I don't want the pills or the anxiety. Why wouldn't I try? The last time I talked to his office, his assistant informed me he wanted me to go see a psychiatrist. I was offended because I felt as though he was stereotyping me. Anyway, I made an appointment with someone to start CBT. I called my doctors office to let them know. I wanted to know if my doctor would want to work in connection with this therapist. My understanding is the psychoanalyst I will be seeing doesn't prescribe, so I will still need my doctor.

My doctor will not call me back. I think he thinks I'm either crazy or I don't know. I'm having bad dreams about my doctor once a week. I had so much trust in him. Even if I do try to find another doctor, will they think I'm doctor shopping just looking for my benzos? Nobody wants to take on a new patient that's on benzos. To be honest, I'd probably be apprehensive too with all the drug abuse out there. We all know what one bad apple does.

I guess I was wrong about it all. I thought a doctor/patient relationship was just as important as a teacher/parent relationship. I thought it took both of you working together. I feel like I have been dumped like the kid who the system let slipped through the cracks because they were dyslexic.

I feel like a hypochondriac idiot for bothering my doctor about all these tidbits of information going on with what he has been treating me for all these years.

Thanks for letting me vent even if nobody reads this.

I'M SO SICK AND TIRED OF HAVING THIS ANXIETY AND BEING TREATED LIKE EITHER A CRIMINAL OR A HYPOCHONDRIAC!!!! AND I DON'T THINK MANY PEOPLE IN THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY REALLY RECOGNIZE THIS ILLNESS AS BEING REAL. I'M A REALLY GOOD PERSON, GOOD TO OTHER PEOPLE AND DON'T DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE THIS! I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING TO GET THIS AND DON'T KNOW WHY I HAVE IT. WHY PUNISH ME FOR IT???? I JUST WANT TO CRY RIGHT NOW........................
