redgirl Posted August 11, 2010 Report Share Posted August 11, 2010 Hi-Has anyone else out there had a problem with being labeled as "difficult" by potential therapists/psychs? I was diagnosed as bp a little over a year ago and since then I've been having trouble finding help because I don't trust the doctors. They let me come in and do an intake at their office and as soon as they hear that I'm bipolar and have had multiple hospitalizations (maybe 8-10 in the past 15 years) they say that I'm "too difficult to work with" and drop me as a client. This is especially frustrating due to the fact that the intake always triggers my PTSD as they want a detailed history and make me talk about things I'm clearly not ready to discuss, and I have developed serious trust issues with doctors due to a few problems I've run into in the past. The last doctor I tried did the intake, said yes she would help me, set up a month of appointments for me and the next day called and said she was dropping me as a patient because I'm bp and "too difficult to work with due to this." This wasn't the first time this has happened. I don't understand this since I do everything they tell me. I'm not being followed by anyone right now, so no meds, and I've moved to a different part of the state so that hopefully I'll find someone who will help me before I end up hospitalized again (which I'm trying VERY hard to avoid). I'm really angry over this and want to scream "I'm bp but I'm still a human being!" every time it happens. I'm sorry this is so long, I haven't had anyone to talk to about this and the many other problems I've got going right now. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
