    You are not stupid. Doctors are stupid for continally under-prescribing much-needed medications. He should give you the proper strength and quantity, but he has no cajones. My pain doctor never gives me enough medication, so I always end up needing more but going without. Why is all this discomfort necessary? It's too cruel.

    You're not stupid Lynn. It just sounds like you are not getting the kind of care you need right now. That's not your fault. :arms:

    Don't blame yourself for needing medication and not having enough. It's not your fault. And talk to your doctor about your needs medically (ie: needing more anxiety medicine).

    But yah, don't get down on yourself for needing more medicine than he gave you.
