Apparently there was some huge misunderstanding with the psychiatrist's office. I thought that I was supposed to go the first time alone, and then schedule difficult child. That didn't seem weird to me as that's how it's almost always been with every mental health professional she's seen. But, no. I get there and fill out this huge mountain of paperwork. They come out to take difficult child's blood pressure and, of course, difficult child isn't there. So, the psychiatrist talked to me and then asked me to bring difficult child back. The psychiatrist seems nice enough, but I don't think she gets it. But, hell, she only talked to me for 30 minutes. Almost 15 years of history in 30 minutes? I did take copies of stuff I had, but she didn't look at them - at least not while I was there. She just didn't seem to get it. She asked about lexapro and prozac and I told her that difficult child had taken them in the past and while I saw results, difficult child insists that they didn't work and if you try to give them to her again she is going to completely shut down and not come back - or not be medication compliant. I told her she could have at it if she wanted, but that difficult child would not be receptive. Not at this point in time. She asked if there are consequences for the school difficult child has missed. Really? Did she not hear the part about "difficult child is shutting down"? She is already beating herself up for her anxiety being so overwhelming and missing school. What the hell does she want me to do? Add to it? So, I don't think she gets it. I brought difficult child back (a freaking fiasco that I'll post about on the WC) and she takes just difficult child back. psychiatrist saw difficult child for maybe 10 minutes and came out with a prescription. 1) I don't like that she prescribed medications without me being there. I expected her to talk to difficult child then call me back, too. 2) She prescribed Trazadone 50mg for sleep. That's ok. Then she prescribed Zoloft 25mg, once a day for a week, then BID. I didn't think Zoloft worked for anxiety, for one. Second, they generally prescribe medications based on a first generation family member's reaction to a medication. Had she asked, I could have told her that Zoloft was a horrible, horrible, horrible medication for me. I hope it's not for difficult child. But, I don't like Zoloft. I just don't. And of course I can't say this in front of difficult child because it will guarantee that reaction in her and will guarantee that it won't work - whether it does or not, Know what I mean?? So, I don't know what I think. We go back March 4. I guess I'll see how it goes.
