“Have you tried eating vegetables? How are you eating?”

the complete and total jackass who prescribes my antidepressants

Idk buddy have you tried eating my knuckle sandwich (sorry so dorky but really) have you tried yoga? Is your mom making you sad? WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR LICENSE FROM THE TOILET STORE BC YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT MY EATING HABITS (I’m a snobby vegetarian foodie FTR) and you know LESS THAN NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING

I have to find a new one before I murder him. Someone remind me to cancel my next appointment, I was trying too hard not to scream to say anything so I just nodded and let him book it.

I walked in crying and he started off with that and then told me I should quit my job and do more yoga and try to make friends at yoga and eat more kale and I would feel better and I didn’t say anything for the rest of the appointment, I just waited it out.  Like he hit all my sore spots in less than five minutes—then he told me I should get a new job with health insurance so I can go to DBT bc that with kale and yoga will cure me.  THEN he told me about a patient who had BPD who was cutting herself and cheating on her husband and he thought she was hopeless but the above prescription worked for her so I should really try it.  Like my mind was blown apart it took the whole car ride and a sobbing dog walk for me to put the pieces of my head back together.  I’m like should I make a yelp profile just to give him a bad review?  Like what makes him think that ANY of that is ok?  or like because I get naked for a living I have something in common with someone with bpd who cheats on her husband—no judgment but what do we have in common that’s not even what’s wrong with me?

he just started talking and I was like I want this man to know less than nothing about me, it was like flipping a switch into customer mode.  I stopped crying and just started nodding and he wrote me another three month prescription for lexapro and I left. like do you know the un/underemployment rate here?  do you know how much you cost (a dollar would be too much btw) do you know anything about anything no you do not.  I’m so angry right now.
