I'm not sure if my psychologist and psychiatrist are doing their jobs right. They diagnose me with things, and they don't tell me anything else about them. Then the psychiatrist puts me on meds.
I was diagnosed with BPD, Bipolar, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I haven't officially been diagnosed with A.D.D. but I'm pretty sure I would be diagnosed as A.D.D.
I was put on Abilify and Zoloft. It's been helping but not enough. I can't keep living life based on their schedule. I need to visit more frequently and let them figure out what I need to do to get better.
I also have a problem with telling the doctor's how I feel. I don't know exactly why, but I have trouble telling them that. I never know how to describe it. I decided to just write a journal entry and try to explain how I feel and I handed it to my psychiatrist. He said it helped a lot.
I usually want to talk to them about going more often, but it always slips my mind.
My mom was also telling me that I am using my disorders as a crutch. I told her she was telling me one thing and NAMI was telling me one thing and my friends were telling me the exact same thing my mom was.
NAMI has this posted on their website:
I live in a small town in Alabama. Who do I believe, where do I turn to? I know what's happening to me is real. And I just realized that I ranted and totally got off topic.
Anyways what questions should I ask my psychologist and psychiatrist?
