PvP healing is horrible

Warriors and feral druids absolutely wreck me 1v1. They can completely lock me down and kill me faster than they could in Wrath, and there's not much I can do about it. Mana isn't the problem, I can't live long enough to use it (even ignoring my long cast heals completely and just relying on instants + Penance + Flash Heal). I know my resilience is low (I only have 2 pieces of the PvP set) but I can't imagine it getting much better -- by the time my resilience improves, damage will have gone up by just as much.

Anyone else just as frustrated? Am I doing it wrong?

INB4 jerk... no you're not doing it wrong. Healing can't keep up with heavy damage. This is as Blizzard intended. Haven't you heard the news? It's working... it's all good.

Can't say much about disc. I know with holy, holy word: chastise (the stun) has made holy 1v1 100x better, plus body and soul, i kite people around. Although a healing priest really shouldnt let themselves get caught in 1v1's... just painful period. stick with a group!

Actually when people replace their heroic gear with PvP gear, offencive stats will go down, and you gain 20% damage reduction. That trend may reverse itself later, but res will help a ton.
