So..I have seen everyone I could see so far. I've only had T for since 2/1 from an outside ear infection. Anyway I know, I am BIG baby but I have a very big history of panic and anxiety and depression. I have a very hard time coping with things. Since 2/1 I have been to the ER, Urgent Care, my psychiatrist who helped me during my last mental breakdown 6 years ago with post pardum depression, 2 ENT's, 3 audiologists (including Sol Marzgar and I went to the Ear House Clinic). A few of these people 1-3x. I have to say EVERY SINGLE PERSON other than the ER doctor has had excellent bedside manner and listened and took time to hear me out and spent extra time helping. I never felt rushed either. BUT they never really took the mental suffering seriously. Except for my psychiatrist that gave me xanax and another sleeping pill..but I have a history with him. Even he is no help for daily suffering. It takes weeks to get an appointment and basically he doesn't counsel typically he prescribes medication. Sorry if I've said these things in one way or another before. It helps to write it down. I just can't believe out of these fantastic amazing and smart doctors WITH excellent bedside manner (and really they are I am not being sarcastic) they don't take the emotional part seriously. Even the EXCELLENT Harvard educated doctor today I saw at the Ear House Clinic told me that I didn't need to worry yet about taking a long term depression pill AFTER I told her this was causing me such anxiety, panic and depression. She said in a joking way I was kind of crazy for getting the hearing aid already. I almost wonder if they think people are like them. They are not only brilliant but can cope with the high levels of mental stress that it would take to get through medical school and become as successful as they are. I am a wife, a mom of a 6 year old wonderful daughter and a manager in marketing for a company. With all that I have always known I can't cope with TONS of stress. I have lots of help in my life and a wonderful supportive husband. However stress has always been something difficult for me. My husband works in the medical field and like them he is highly highly intelligent. He explained that they are treating the scope of what they are good at. The cause of this T. They aren't so good at treating what they aren't good at. There really needs to be more attention brought to the psychological suffering for the beginning sufferers of T and H and other issues such as this. SPECIFICALLY because stress and anxiety makes it all worse. I honestly think what happened to me was that I had this ear infection and heard the T and freaked out and went to these forums and now I just hear what maybe I always had. I think because of the stress I am looking for it and it is making it so much louder. We just need more for people going through these beginning stages. Not just amazing brilliant fantastic doctors saying "oh honey you will be ok just try not to think about it."
