I think some member can relate to you.
Ive recently moved towns, we selected the clinic of choice and both saw a GP for scripts and introduction.
What was apparent throughout the session was his knowledge of medicine and treatment for physical symptoms but woefully inadequate in term of mental illness in particular bipolar.
I told him several times that I’m a good communicator but not such a good socialiser as I prefer not to join clubs, yet get pushed the topic to recommend the local men’s shed, rotary and Lions clubs all of which is for me a disaster waiting to happen.
In contrast a colleague of his did a blood test since and had a sound understanding of bipolar and it’s associated behaviours/moods.
Hence I’ll divide myself between the two.
Do you think you can do the same with your professional medical personnel? Mind you I do think it is the luck of the draw.
The beauty of this forum is you can raise topics in between psych visits to gain clarity.
