[FONT=Comic Sans MS]undefined[/FONT]OK.....
I went to this new DR. -per the advice of my LONG time therepist....(who Knows ALL about my JUNK....) And this FREAK goes, " Oh,...Well,,,I thought a person with your condition would be more LEAN....." MORE LEAN....
ARE YOU KIDDING ME????? MORE LEAN?? WHAT THE HELL EVER!!!!
What does that mean? MORE LEAN....
Well, she decided, I need to be on Seroquel...............Since that's what ALL her patients are on.....(Give me a break!)
I haven't filled the prescription yet...She wants me to take that AND prozac...(80 mil) AM I going to become a FREAK..?? Like Medication made me before...?? Or Has ANYONE delt with this med. with an E.D.?
I NEVER have taken AANYTHING except Prozac and Klonopin... This person thinks SEroquel is THE ANSWER!!!
Is it?
I need help from the people who know BEST....
Thanks...Please help me figure out, WHAT THE HELL EVER.....
I cannot believe that a medical professional would make a comment like that. When I was anorexic several years ago I would interpret "fine" or "normal" as being fat. He should know how sensitive people with this disease are. Trust me, there is no way you could be even CLOSE to fat.
I recommend you take the Prozac. It helped me SO much. I've never heard of Seroquel, but if she prescribed it, I guess it must be helpful. After all, she's the professional. You could always look into it more, though. But definitely start the prozac. It will make you so much happier....
You're right, what the hell ever! This so-called professional obviously doesn't know how to handle anorexics, otherwise they wouldn't have made such a stupid comment. I had a similar experience - my GP referred me to a psychotherapist who said at the end of the session, 'well, you're not actually anorexic you know' which was the most damaging thing anyone had ever said to me. I went back to my GP who complained about this woman and she doesn't get any patients from my doctor's clinic anymore! Let's just say, if the Prozac is working for you, stick with it or get some help from a professional who knows what they're talking about. I really wouldn't take this advice from this woman, she doesn't seem to understand you and that may mean she may not prescribe the best medicine for you.
