any body else in this boat

in our last meeing the psychiatrist and I agreed that seeing her every three months was wasteful of time - and she wrote me a script for one year with me having to call her every three months to have the next batch sent - I had been researching tegretol as a medicine for myself prior to this - but did not tolerate the med - she asked me what I wanted and I was not prepared since the tegretol deal had depressed me - and I was telling her I didn't know what to do next for my static state of depression - part of my collected list - somatoform disorder - clinical depression - panic disorder - bi polar II - and schitzoid personality disorder. (there are other things too) - the last 20 years haven't been much fun.. lol - anyway I asked for klon and seroquel and was given this - however even though my condition has been static for quite some time I am not ready to give up on trying new things - however it was the doctors thought - I am one of those who don't get better and can only do things to stay stable and not kill myself. this is all through the VA and its a small VA and I feel now I have been label and its a lost cause for me to fight to see another VA shrink here. since its now documented in my charts that my condition is static.. what to do - I do not feel like I want to be on klon and seroquel - have already regressed some on the six weeks I have been taking the seroquel - and can feel panic attacks starting to churn below the surface - anybody been to the bottom and found a way back - I am not talking about being laid low by own condition -but laid low by the medical profession - who do you go to? when they don't want to see you. I am on disability and have no insurance to cover outside the VA medical care..

Hi Enoch! Wouldn't you know that someone who doesn't know the answer would be the first to reply?:-)

I'm in terrible physical shape as well as the "Big D" so I understand your frustration. I found out last week that I shouldn't be posting when the pain is real bad so, up until seeing your post here, I've been limiting myself to just reading. I've read your post (3) times trying to get the entire message clear in my ole mind. Sooo hang w/me in case I haven't digested the whole thing correctly! I understand that the psy doc put you on the 2 current meds & they're not working. Are you no longer allowed to phone her, explain the problem, and have her change your meds?
