This document is a bit dated (2006) and I'm pretty sure that it was mentioned on this forum. However, we tend to forget about it. So, if you are dealing with a psychiatrist who thinks your condition is "all in your head", here is a very useful document, clinical guidelines for psychiatrists (by Eleanor Stein). http://www.aqem.org/includes/documents/guidelines_psychiatrists.pdf Let me know what you think about it and if it did help you in any way. Don't despair! =-) BDF P.S. Take a look at the 'references' section. Lots to read on the subject.
