Red face bad psychiatrist appointment please help me

Hi all well I got a cancellation today for this afternoon I was happy finally I was going to get help,well that's what I assumed.
What a joke the psychiatrist had got the letter from my GP stating the diagnosis of bipolar so of course I had to explain all the symptoms again,he asked if I've ever over spent of course I had,but this was not enough info for him,he wanted to know when I got my visa,how to I shop with limited mobility,to which I replied on the internet,omg he went on and on about it.
I told him how desperate I am for help,he wasn't bothered just told me that I had to return in october with a mood diary!
So although my GP and husband had told him everything this was still not good enough,he disregarded previous suicide attempts
And when I cried with temper he told me crying wouldn't get me anywhere!
How much more do I have to beg for help?
He also said that I had not mentioned some of these symptoms in my last appointment 5 yrs ago but that was because my nother told me not to as my kids would be taken away from me,and of course I had no reason not to doubt her she's a social worker.
I'm so annoyed and frustrated and can't afford to go private,I also can't see a different psych as there are only 2 available!
Please help me with any advice or similar experiences before I totally crack
Many thanks for reading
Jacq
