Sorry but I have to rant. For 10 months I have been seeing a general medicine specialist at the hospital who told me about 5 months ago I have Fibro among other problems. So I go for an Appt today and he says he thinks it is all in my mind and that I may have depression or anxiety and wants to give me anti depressants and see a shrink. I told him I think that shrinks are a waste of money I do not feel sad or depressed and I do not have any anxiety and I won't take anti depressants as they will make me zombie like and I have to work fulltime and be engaged. He asks me about my homelife and am I having any trouble, my home life is fine I have no problems, I have adapted my life to cope with restricitions etc. He says your sleep problems are anxiety related, I say related to what and how come I don't feel, anxious? (mind you by now I am am feeling almost balisitic) He told me that perhaps I don't know I am anxious gee I would have figured that I might! I was gobsmacked and told him that I will see one once to proove that he is wrong. So from what I understand as he cannot find any medical testing results for my sleeplessness and joint pain, fatigue, painful points all over my body etc the answer must be that I am depressed and anxious! What the hell!!!! He is referring me to a rheumatologist but I ammguessing the referral will say - all in her head but just placate her!
