Well, I saw the psychiatrist today, and he did seem very nice and understanding. He didn't try to tell me all the pain was in my head. LOL. He wants to switch me from Paxil, which I've been on for years to Effexor. He wrote out a schedule for me to taper off Paxil and onto Effexor. I am really nervous about doing this, because every time I have tried to wean off Paxil it has been a nightmare. I saw in my post yesterday about going to a psych someone else had this experience too. I've got to do something though. Paxil is not cutting it any more and I am so depressed over my declining health. At least I do have a contact person now, and I can call him if I have problems.
