I have seen over 20 doctors and get many diagnosis, but they always diagnosis me with C-PTSD. So now I am in this Out Patient program and this psychiatrist assigned to me was dismissive and rude and told me I did not have it without letting me explain my horrific child hood. I was so triggered and angry by this. It made me feel that the horrors I lived through were invalidated. I got support from a very wise FB friend and she said I should just let it go. That I was there to get help and to focus on that. So I spent today trying to figure out how to let it go, because I am so pissed. Well, I decided I will eventually see another therapist outside of the program and I know I will get this diagnosis and that it is OK if this dismissive doctor lacks the compassion and time to hear me out. I fired him and asked for another psychiatrist and she may or may not give me the opportunity to explain. I don't know how I will do as everyday I feel different, but I hope it does not cause me to much distress.
