    Today I found out my doctor is leaving. I have been with him for 5 years. I don't know what to do. I will have to start over with a new doctor. I don 't know if I can talk about things again. I am starting to feel suicidal again. I just don't know what to do.

    I know how hard it is to lose a doctor. You form very close, intimate relationships with a deep trust in them and when they leave you know you have to start all over again with a new doctor. It's tough, starting over with a new doctor, but you know that if you stick at it with the new one, you'll hopefully form that bond again with them and find in them what you had in the first one :hug: Don't kill yourself over this, it's not worth it.

    HI! Welcome to SF. I had to start over several times and I know how difficult it can be, but don't worry, it becomes very easy to let things out again very quickly.

    Hello and welcome to SF.

    I am glad you found us. It must be hard having to start again fresh with a new doctor,but I'm sure it will be worth it in the end. Just take it slowly,step by step to build trust.

    Your new doc will know what to do, I've been through several of them. If I don't feel like talking about something I tell him/her I would rather touch on that item later.
    Trust them, they'll know.

    I moved from one end of the country to the other and my Doctor sent all of my details to my new Doc, she knew everything about me when I got there!
