I felt nervous and ashamed when I finally went to a doctor. I'm assuming it's to check on the state of your bodily functions/organs/vital signs, etc?. This is what I learned after I got my results: so-oooooo much damage can be reversed! It takes A LOT of TLC, but you can get yourself back on track! Bring a friend when you get your results, too, because the information and guidance can be overwhelming.

I was nervous too, until I got there and realized they are there to help. Be honest, there is nothing you can say that they haven't heard before. You will be in good hands.

That "Doctor" should be reported to the licensing boards...and any other authorties that will "jerk" him back in line!

I know I would...because I have !

It's obvious he has forgotten all about an Oath he took.

Soberlife. I had the same kind of experience. Luckily my boss referred me for counselling the very next day. (I'm in the UK - presumably you're not, or you wouldn't be getting to see a doctor today - so I don't know if that's possible for you either.

Looking back, I'm not sure I explained myself very well to him as I was in such a state, and neither of us (me or the doctor) understood what I wanted him to do or say. I wished (in hindsight) that I had tried a different doctor, and made sure that I had everything written down that I wanted to tell them so that could def be no misunderstandings. At the time was all over the place. Angry; embarrassed; confused; frustrated. I was also tempted to waste emotional energy on forming resentments about the Doctor and his treatment of me. These are all triggers. Please try not to drink on this. That won't help you. You need to stay as calm as possible so that you can look after yourself and think about what the next course of action should be.

Sending *hugs* x

I'm going to go to work....the only useful thing is he did refer a very expensive private outpatient program that actually looks really helpful. Except of course it was said condescendingly "you can go here since you can obviously afford it" . Really humiliated because it took so much courage to build up to going and being honest and he was so awful. Ironically when he found out I was a lawyer at the end he tried to backtrack hugely and apologize.....bah the whle thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

That guy is just one more negative thing in your life that you don't need. Don't let that one bad experience deter you from your goal!! Just keep fighting and searching for positive people to support you - like us! ;-)

You need another Dr. That sounds disgraceful to me.
