> Ed no GP an internist instead. And when I see him which is about never he sends me to the specialist of that field whether it be infection control, ob-gyn, neurologist, pdoc, gastro etc. Everyone has a specialty. He won't even treat my thyroid has to be the endo in my case. PJxxx

I'm finally unblocked for "swearing". Whatever.

All the primary care docs here can handle is the common cold, and I'm not exaggerating that much, really. They just point you to a "specialist" whom, in my case, sucks pretty bad at helping you as well, and are just as quick to point you back to your PCP or yet another doctor. No one wants to treat anything that isn't just a simple, common problem, but they love to bill you and your insurance for tests and follow up appts. you don't need or want. Most of the time all they need to do is ask you questions about your symptoms and health, but instead, they set up more useless tests that never show anything, raking in hundreds of dollars for those tests. My PCP appt was $382 bucks!!! For that, I got threatened (with hospitalization), insulted, given attitude because I was sick - cause I guess depression (to him) is simply an attitude problem, so I deserve to get berated from a doctor for my "bad attitude". He even held back meds he promised me when we spoke during the last appt. He told me to go to my p-doc, and when I did, I got there (1.5 months later) and the first thing the doctor said is that he can't help me. I've been dealing with this crap for years. Many years. I'm done.

These "doctors" of course bill you for an appt first, get your money, THEN tell you they can't help you, instead of doing it over the phone, saving you time and money, and sanity. I love waiting 1-3 months (in multiple forms of pain, no sleep, etc) for an appt. just to find out all they had to tell me was "I can't help you", and YES, they already knew what I was coming in for, but the appt's gets booked anyway. Not sure how the hell they sleep at night.

As far as me, I've been off Nardil for 2-3 months, and been off Selegeline for 1-2 months, but still suffer from 2 *severe* side effects that are completely life altering.

I don't care anymore. I have a new "exit strategy" that will instantly end all my "problems". I'm sick of fighting the "system", people in general, my satanic "wife", and my own brain. I'm done. Just need to handle some legal crap, and that's that. I wish I had could enjoy something, or anything, but I can't. I've pretty much accepted my fate.
