I hate everything about Homeskooled. I hate his religion, I hate his eloquence, I hate his intelligence - in summary, he's a git. Actually, thinking about it, I hate Sebastian and most of the rest of you for the same reasons.

But I must say I love the guy for the following reason: Following Homeskooleds advice that I sent to the doctor, I've got an appointment tomorrow to see him. Now, I'm not getting my hopes up too much, because the doctor in question is a 23 year old jumped up little shit, who I can tell has taken an instant dislike to me because of my temerity that I might know more than him - but we'll see. If he doesn't give me what I need, I'll bury him under my patio along with all the other people who've pissed me off.

Cheers Homeskooled. I also feel slightly happier because I've just eaten the most enormous slice of chocolate cake known to man.

Thanks Martin. So you paged the doc, eh? Good move. By law, they have to respond for your need for more immediate attention. There's always a way, if you want it bad enough - always. I've gone to the ER twice in one night to get the desired results. I've studied in medical libraries while my liver felt like it was popping out of my chest and I was covered in a cold sweat from my porphyria. And if my family doctor didnt listen after I presented him with medical papers, bloodwork, etc...I changed doctors. I dont have time for this crap. You dont have time for this crap. This is nowhere near as a difficult a diagnosis as porphyria. Take in the paper that shows its good for depression. Then tell them about your DR and print up one of Daphne Simeon's abstracts of how lamictal helps. Act humble, sincere, listen to the young guy and make it look like you are listening. Explain how you are so experienced with all of these medicines that you honestly think that you would like to try a non-addictive alternative to benzos. They'll like to hear that. Tell them you have friends on it. Tell them you'll stay on the Klono with it if it makes them feel better. Be kind, intelligent, and persistent. If he still refuses, tell him you'd like to lodge a complaint, either with his overseeing doctor (he's probably a resident at 23), or with the head of his practice. Tell them you want to switch doctors. They dont like to remind patient's of this, but you have final say over your healthcare. In essence, you are the employer and your doctor is the employee. He works for you. When intelligence and charm dont do the trick, you can remind him of that. And be sure to tell them why you wont take what they are prescribing, if the pleasant, intelligent ways fail. In the end, the patient, especially an educated one, has the doctor over a barrell. You have control over your own life.

I had to check the computer screen twice when I saw the thread title. I then grabbed the monitor from my library computer, yanked it from its cords, and shook it back and forth for a minute. Sitting down and realizing that I was still hallucinating, I began to have an anxiety attack, and realized that I could no longer feel my body. Do you guys ever get the feeling that you are going crazy? That you are slowly dissappearing? I think I may have brain damage now, or possibly schizophrenia. Do you guys think you can get brain damage from an anxiety attack? What is the point of everything? Why does everything look so fake?Thanks Martin... :?

Peace
Homeskooled :wink:

So how'd it go with Doogie Howser? Is he still a Resident MD, or is he now a Resident MP (Martin's patio)? Assuming that he's still above ground, did he start you at a decent dosage, or did he go the 5 nanogram route that a lot of these wuss doctors seem to take?
