Unhappy too much expectations???? - October 18th 2012, 11:28 AM

well, i really don't know what to say.. d current state of my mind is really confused..sometimes i try to think rationally but it is just hopeless... i am seeing a psychiatrist for a month now..he is very nice. yes, understanding, i would say, but he just doesn't have the time.. i am just like other patients to him.. i mean just another case.And that really hurtsssssssssssssSSSSSSSSSS.... i mean 4 the first time in my life i thought i had met someone elder who at least understood me..but, he just seems to write my medications n pretends to listen! i really want him to understand..i mean 4 2 weeks i wait 4 this meeting n it hardly lasts for 10 minutes.. i thought i had finally found someone who would listen to me without interrupting me(though he does that) but, every time i leave disappointed, feeling like an idiot! no matter how many times i have tried explaining myself that it is his job, that he sees people like me everyday...but, i can't help but feel saddened by this meeting... i know it is idiotic but, pleeeeeeaaaaasssssssseeeeeee help me....is what i expect wrong?

I don't think it's wrong to want what you've said, however, traditionally psychiatrists focus on prescribing medication. You may have better luck with a different type of mental health professional such as a psychologist, counselor, or social worker. You can continue to see the psychiatrist for medication since none of the other professionals mentioned can prescribe medication, but they will be more likely to provide the type of environment/relationship you seem to be looking for.
