Bipolar Advice

Asked by on with 1 answer:

My Dr. is away until late March. I am crashing. I hate people, they smell. There is so much noise all around me I cannot cope with it. The world is moving at a different speed than I am. I am worried, but my Dr. is away. Should I ask to see one of his partners?

Yes. March is a long way away and I wouldn’t wait. I would even go so far as to say that if you can’t get in to see one of the partners, make an appointment with a competent psychiatrist in your area who can see you in the interim.

For the future I would talk to your doctor about making these arrangements with you ahead of time to avoid anxiety downstream.

Wishing you patience and peace,
