Serizone and looking for a group close to home, Douglas county Oregon

By December 5, 2011 - 3:00pm

Hello, I'm new here. I have general anxiety disorder, its part of my post tramatic stress disorder, ( paranoia is a survival skill!) Just got back on my serizone, I have a hard time finding a doctor that will write me a script for it but its what works best for me. I also have COPD and 2 months ago the doc told me I have Lupus. thats it, didnt tell me anything about it or give me any advice, just refered me to a specialist that blew me off for 2 months, he finally gave me an appointment for 2 months from now. 4 months is a long time to wait in pain and scared. i just changed doctors, feel like chewing the old one out but i cant go out side during the day or i get what looks and feels like a chemical burn, takes at least a week to heal. I cant drive cause i have occular migrains ( they make it so i cant see) im not going to make mysef sick just to tell off that twit! Im hoping the new doc will actually give a damn. getting more scared every day, it's just me and my 2 girls (10 & 14). not sure what i should tell them cause i dont really know what going on with me. all i know is that i can barely make it down the stares and i am TOTALLY on my own here.

Hi Grandmajese

Thank you for your post and welcome.

I'm sorry you're going through so much now and are in so much pain - you have a lot on your plate.

Regarding that doctor - somehow - somewhere- they sometimes lose their "human factor" and read off diagnoses and instructions as if they are talking to a wall. Some doctors do this so that they can remain professional for the sake of their patients but others just seem to lose compassion. I'm glad you have  new doctor. I would actually let him/her know that you have moved on from your last doctor due to his ill-treatment of you. You can say it plainly and simply and tell him/her you hope to be treated in a more humane fashion.I agree that four months is ridiculously long - as to be put on a waiting list for cancellations - that sometimes works quite well.

We would be happy to look into support Groups for you - can you tell me exactly what you are looking for - Lupus - COPD - or a support group for chronic conditions? Let me know and I'd be happy to help.
