Our expert says:
YOur new doctor could be an idiot if he's acusing you of lying --- your task as a patient is to describe your symptoms to him, eg rapid swings of mood --- HIS task is to decide which diagnosis best fits this pattersn of symptoms, and how best to treat it. It rapid cucling is that your first pair of shrinks said, how does he think you are lying if simply reporting what they told you ? But DO hold on and don't carry out ANY steps towards this or any other suicide bid. It doesn't sound as though there's much difference between the opinions of your retired doctor and the fierst pair ; it's the second -opinion shrink who seems unhelpfully critical of you. Stick to the first pair, and continue to work energetically towards finding the best plan of treatments to stabilize you and let you become happier and productive again.
