Why Does My Shrink Hate Me?

You remember, pardon the pun but, the insane time I had getting my appointment for my crazy pills from Dr Crazy last summer, right? Well, somehow he thought I was uncrazy enough to set my next appointment for 6 months out. We made the appointment for mid-February right then and there. 

Now mid-February is approaching and the other day they called to say, you guessed it, He won't be in that day, we need to reschedule. I just laughed. Maniacally. She asked why I was laughing, I said Lady, do you know how many times we rescheduled my first appointment last summer? I am so not surprised to be hearing from you. 

I've been assured that he will be in for my newly scheduled appointment. Place your bets now, ladies and gentlemen.

I told myself, Self, I said (because crazy people address themselves as Self when talking to themselves), if they try to reschedule one more time, you have to find a new shrink, that's it. But I've since decided that maybe I won't get a new shrink and might instead simply start a new category here on the ol' blog titled 'Dr Crazy' because really, it's somewhat entertaining. As long as I have my crazy pills. Otherwise it gets decidedly unfunny.

No offense, but you shrink seems to be a bit of a dick. I had one a few years ago after finally deciding to take a chance and talk to one. She had two sessions with me, Christmas was coming up, she looked at me and said, "You are fine. I'll call you after Christmas to set a new appointment." I never heard from her again. I was clinically depressed, had had a my second nervous breakdown, was just told by my father that he had always truly hated me and was suffering from an eating disorder. But I was fine to her. Yeah, Self, the Other One and I dealt with it on our own lol.

Good luck with Dr. Crazy Dick :)...or Dick Crazy...but I don't know him well enough for that assesment...

Maybe I need some crazy pills... I feel like I'm losing my mind and I may be a danger to society, or at least my household and surrounding cohabitants of our little apartment complex. Oh. and our mail carrier. He's definitely a goner.

Save the money on the shrink and we can be your shrink. What? I play one on tv at least.

Dude. My doctor is the opposite. I'm in that effing office once a month. It's ridiculous.

Anyway, get a new shrink. An appointment set SIX MONTHS AGO has to be re-scheduled? Err, physician (psychiatrist), heal THYSELF and THY TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS.

A wise person (Oprah or Dr. Phil - can't remember) (and me) likes to say "The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior." I think you should go ahead and get a new shrink.

My dr does this too!! What is up with honoring your appointments. I don't want the hassle of starting over with a new dr, but it really pisses me off.

I am so lucky that my Primary Doctor is totally understanding of my insanity. He was in the Air Force and dealth with all kinds of physical and mental issues so he helps me with my crazy pills. He just gave me some more crazy pills because of my recent stay in the hospital. I really think you need to speak to a doctor who will listen to YOU. Good luck!!
