I have often read blogs and comments on Moodscope about people who have lovely supportive and understanding relationships with their doctors, counsellors and other health professionals.
Alas, I have tried hard to develop such a relationship and did so once for a few months, but I had to move due to covid.
In the last two years I have tried so hard to have a relationship with any doctor who would give an appointment. Today was the worst of the three times I have seen her. She was efficient but abrupt and her tone made me want to cry. I know I am very sensitive.
I realise that not everyone will connect to their doctor, but I know I need some form of understanding and connection.
I would like to know how long it took you to get on well with your health professional. What did you do that made the relationship a positive one? What qualities do you look for in a supportive doctor? How long does it take to build up a rapport with your doctor?
