Our expert says:
Everyone feels a bit anxious when seeing a new shrink - or a new work colleague, or whatever. Maybe its a good sign that he is a bit cautious now when taking over a complex situation, rather than pig-headedly rushing into new ideas without carefully thinking them through. He may need to contact your previous doc for information about your previous episodes, especially those that involved admissions. I'm pleased that he wanted to be sure about manic episodes - I find some docs rush to diagnose bipolar disorder wven when there's not much evidence of real manic episodes.
As you recognize, you are a bit hypersensitive at present, and should soon be able to make peace with your new shrink, and manager.
Things sound promising.
