Have you ever walked out of a doctor appointment?

When I was addicted to opiates and going through extreme dysphoric mania my dr noticed and took me off all pain med anxiety med antidepressants muscle relaxers adhd med in one appointment and told me to clean up my act and she wouldn’t help me anymore I walked out. Went through withdrawal and went through the worst in unmedicated mania of my life. The insanity lasted about 3 years. I became a suicidal alcoholic and spent 6 months homeless actively trying to convince myself I should die.

Yeah I was an addict and had a problem and undiagnosed bipolar disorder but rather than help she just cut me off. I didn’t trust doctors after that until my mania subsided so I never sought help.
