You’re a Loser!!!!

I went to see my psychiatrist because I was feeling kind of down. She asked me a few questions, took some notes then sat thinking in silence for a few minutes and said, “Um, I think your problem is low self-esteem. It is very common among losers.”  I see a psychiatrist regularly. A psychiatrist is the only one who can dispense the prescriptions that I need, so I have to see one. She also evaluates progress to determine if doses need to change or be switched to a different medicine.

The one I see now, is great. I’ve had a couple of others that I fired because they wouldn’t ask any questions; they would just refill the same medications, even if they weren’t working.

I don’t like taking medicine in the first place, so what I do take needs to make a difference. My former psychiatrists, when I told them the medications weren’t making a difference, would ask me, “Have you taken ****?” No.” this line of questioning would go on through a huge list of medications and I would always walk out using the same meds as I did before going. It was very frustrating.

When I began seeing this lady, she asked me questions about the past several years and how I have progressed, good and bad. She then put me on a different medication that has made things better.

The last time I saw her was on Halloween. She was dressed like a witch and really freaked me out. She also kept yelling, “You’ll shoot your eye out!” I still don’t know what that was all about.

My point is, if you think you need professional help, get it. Life is way too short to be feeling poorly all of the time.
