The importance of finding the right doctor.
The internet is fraught with stories related to uncaring doctors and doctors who just don't listen to their patients.
So, if this is your situation, find another doctor!
In the personal example of stress cited above, if I had had the right doctor, I believe he would have worked with me to find the right combination of medications. He would have worked with me to help me re-establish a suitable sleep pattern.
As it was, my doctor at the time didn't seem to care about my sleep problems. He actually seem to act as if losing a night?s sleep every third night was normal! Consequently, as I previously stated, I had to take early retirement from my job. I honestly feel that if he had treated me properly, this wouldn't have been necessary. (fortunately, this doctor has retired and now I have a great doctor)
