I got a new doctor already. The only places that take Medicaid near me are really shady places. But Iím just on Medicare now, and really nice places near me take Medicare. So it was just a one phone call thing. Itís so easier though.

Anyways, I looked the doctor up. Most of his reviews are 5 Stars. There was one one star review where someone said heís a pill pusher and will get everything he can out of your insurance company. He sounds ok though.

Yeah Iíve been taken off Ativan before because the doctor just didnít like it. I was actually prescribed two a day. And he just randomly took me off it cold turkey.

In general I donít trust pdocs.

I have noticed that my PMDD symptoms have decreased a lot since I got the Ativan prescription. I havenít missed a day of work due to it in a year. I used to miss at least one day a week while dealing with PMS. Iím not even taking the Ativan. It helps just to know I have it if I need it. Maybe itís not all the Ativan, but it does seem like itís a big part of it.

Iím still stressing about this new Dr. I had a weird dream about him last night. I also donít want to pay for the $88 assessment. I just had one in March. I donít know why they would do one again.

But Iím hoping if I tell him that it has legitimately eased my symptoms, and that I do rarely take it, that he would continue prescribing it. Plus I donít even need a refill right now. I possibly wonít need one until next year.
