When I tried telling my doctor how I felt mentally he didn't want to listen...why would anyone do that?!?!

Question: When I tried telling my doctor how I felt mentally he didn't want to listen...why would anyone do that.?!.?
I went to my doctor because I was hitting rock bottom. I wasn't eatting and sleeping and felt sick both mentally and physically. I knew I needed help and went. I wrote out a long letter to him. I was going to let him read it whenever he wanted. I told him there is too much to say and I literally can't speak it or I will cry and it wouldn't make any sense. He said to me "I don't want to hear it" I was shocked by what he said. I went to him for help and that is all I got from him. Before I left I showed him my arm, THEN HE WENT OH WAIT...YOU NEED HELP. WTF...SERIOUSLY...I never got to a therapist yet, I'm going don't worry. I just can't believe a doctor would do that. I guess he figured once a doctor told me I'm fine, I would believe it and move on and get better on my own.?%3Health Question & Answer

If you're a cutter then you most definately need help and the first step is the hardest. Don't give up because you had a doctor with cold bedside manners. That is really not unusual, since they are stressed out as well. Some don't let themselves get too involved with their patients either.

In my experience there are to kinds of doctors, the ones that love their job and care about the people that they treat, and then there are those doctors that only care about themselves and are in it only for the money. I am going to college to become a Healthcare Administrator so that I can make sure people get doctors who care about their patient's and know what their doing. Find a new doctor right away, you be better off in the future.Health Question & Answer

Seriously, you need to find another doctor. If a doctor will not help you when you are telling him how you feel then he is not really listening to you. Get a second opinion quickly.Health Question & Answer
