Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
The subject line probably seems amusing at first, but the sad part is that its the truth.
I am 26 years old, and was diagnosed with depression/bipolar/OCD/psychosis (a.k.a they have no clue) 2 years ago. Currently I am taking Effexor, Prozac, Lithium, Trazadone, and Seroquel.
This is the thing. I have been on all for atleast a year now and last week I suffered my first seizure. Frightening experience simply because I was by myself doing my form of therapy, shopping and the next thing I woke up in an ambulance.
Now I have to see multiple Neurologists who tell me that it is common and its due to my meds, only to listen to my psychiatrist tell me that the seizure was unrelated due to my track record on meds but before I left the office offerd to give me a script for Klonopin, and my psychologist who thinks that I'm on too many meds and he wants me to see some top college researcher (even though my shrink and psychiatrist work together).
My psychologist is telling me to file for permanent disability and suggests I don't drive, whereas my neurologist says it was a fluke and I can drive and my psychiatrist tells me that driving would be like attempting to kill myself.
So ............sorry about the rant.
Back to the point, who are you suppose to take direction from when it comes to the glorious field of mental illness? Or are you suppose to figure that out yourself , even though (you are diagnosed as clinically psychotic or more plainly mentally ill).
I thought the Dr.'s got paid the big bucks to make thesew decisions...................so why I am forced to pay them even though they are NOT doing their jobs?
