Medical Follow-Up

So, Di and I talked some more last night, and decided this was all a bad call. I'm annoyed that my pains were basically blown off with an "oh well', and I'm not comfortable taking meds for a problem that I don't feel I even have most of the time, and from someone who has exactly zero knowledge of my mental history and just tossed Depakote at me to try out. He had me working up to 750mg a day, valproic acid...anyone have an opinion on this? I'm not that familiar with the drug.

Besides, I categorically refuse to regularly take anything that is going to make me fuzzy-headed for something that only comes up occasionally. As dravengodvamp put it, "Frank likes his mania, and I understand that, it's when you're the most creative." I don't need something to treat bipolar disorder, I just want something that might take the edge off the anger/annoyance when it rears it's ugly head. Christ, he could have given me Valium, I'd have been happy.

Anyway, Dianna called to cancel my follow-up appointment and let them know that I wasn't going to take this stuff, but that we wanted a new appointment to discuss getting something better done with my various problems, seeing as how I was seriously NOT satisfied with how yesterday went. Sadly, we soonest we could get in to see him is one day closer than my old appointment, but whatever. I may try to get a referral out of him to see an actual mental health professional, and see where that goes.
