Hi all! Just got back from my psychiatrist (if you can call the mother****a that). I took a mental Health Advocacy woman with me, who took notes and asked important questions. The main purpose for seeing him was to organize a case worker who would deal with me one-on-one, reintergrating me into society, helping me with certain issues etc. The psychiatrist was clearly pissed off (and it showed in his mannerism and everything he carried about him), and he basically said flat out NO, because PTSD Psychiatric disorder , only the effects of it are! I saw red - I wanted to grab him by the throat and choke him right there in his ****in office. Something in me controlled my actions, enough for him to prescribe me with Effexor XR. Can someone please HELP!
