  1. Canadian Eh – my doctors ask me, a bipolar with schizo-affective and PTSD – what I “want.” I can’t tell them that! I can only tell them what doesn’t work and why…it is frightening that I seem to know more about psych meds than the doctors do. What I want is for a doctor to go ahead and take one-eighth the dose of Seroquel I am prescribed and attempt to swim through it before telling me I just need to get motivated. Dr Rank, during one of his drunken, spittle-flying rages, made a decision during my second and last ten-minute visit to him that has made this past decade a living HELL for me…is there ANY way to get his notes withdrawn completely from my medical records?
