Well now that I have finally gotten settled in here we got easy child an appointment with her general practice doctor and they set her up for a psychiatric consult. I was thrilled because two days later I got a call for an appointment but concerned when they said it was at another military base. I mean seriously we just moved to one of the two largest military medical communities there are in the US why did I need to drive to another base for care. Anyway I thought maybe all the intake appts were done at a regional site so I just bit my tongue and went. THIS GUY WAS AWFUL!!!!!!! I was so dissapointed in him. Not only was he very abrasive with my daughter he was also pretty harsh on me. I did like that he called us both on our bull**** about not finishing what we start because that is the truth. On the other hand I tried to explain to him about easy child's fear/anxiety with large groups of people and he literally said it was "bull$hit." Saying she used that as a way to manipulate us into letting her not do things. easy child broke down in tears when he left the room to get some paperwork and told me he was mean. He did give me some decent advice on managing getting easy child to do stuff but he was so condescending I disliked him too. My biggest complaint from the whole visit was that he didn't listen to a thing we had to say. I told him her therapist had diagnosed her with anxiety and that a long time ago she had been diagnosed with ADHD. Then I went on to tell him about her issues with noise, her cutting her wrist once, her sleeplessness, her lack of compliance with medication, and her seeming depression and mood swings. I tried to describe the constant anger she has and that even though she is a good kid the disrespect is starting to get worse. His response. She has ADHD and nothing else. All the other stuff is just her ADHD making her irritable. I should give her Vitamin D and take away all chocolate/soda. Heck I give the kid very little of that anyway because she has weight issues. Plus she only drinks caffeine free dye free sodas when we go out to dinner which isn't often. Thank Gosh I had to take her in for a second appointment with her general practice doctor after that. I immediately asked why her consult was sent to the other base and found out it was a mistake. Then I asked for the consult to be redone here with a different dr. I let them know that if he was the only care option she wouldn't be going back. I am going to ask for a neuropsychologist evaluation when we see the new guy and pray for once someone will listen to the issues in FULL instead of just blowing every little thing off.
