> I don't think making a bona fide wrong diagnosis is the same as male fide lying.

I agree. Different diagnoses or opinions from different providers are often the norm. They're not lying. They are forming an opinion based on their understanding of the information presented to them at that time, filtered by their own experience and ways of looking at things.

Phillipa, he'd have no reason to lie to you. It also sounds to me like It's possible you didn't give the internist enough time to fully participate in your care. If he didn't know about the conference, that's not his fault, and it's not the pdoc's fault. "After" can mean immediately after as in right that minute, later that same week, sometime in the next month, sometime before you're scheduled in again, etc.

I know you're not feeling well, and navigating the way through this whole process is challenging even when we're at our peak. I would just encourage you to try to slow down, take a breath, and give someone a chance. I know it's hard, especially with anxiety. But if one doesn't collaborate with a doc to set up and *follow* a treatment plan, it's impossible to know what works and what doesn't. But I know it's so hard to be patient when you're feeling awful.

I know you've looked for a T before and haven't found one that would be a good arrangement for you. Perhaps you could work with one specifically on your thoughts and feelings about medications. I think this could help you two ways. First, it could help you through the difficult meds trials and adjustment phases. And it would also give you a trial with a T to see if you could work with him or her on other stuff once you get the meds set up in a way that's best for you. If you decided to try this, I think a T who does CBT would be a good choice.

What do you think?
