Psychiatrist Update had our apt today

today we saw dr. barry for the first time since we got out of the hospital. we hadnt seen her since we were in there and she left to go on holiday. we had a lot to catch her up on.
we reported the nurse who had talked about us to another nurse while we were an inpatient. we overheard all of her conversation, remember us telling you about that? dr. barry was horrified. she said it was totally unprofessional and inappropriate. she said there are forums for staff members to discuss patients and care plans and things and that she shouldnt have done it in a public space where she knew I could overhear her.
I told her some about the work we’d been doing in therapy lately and she was very impressed. She said she hoped we’d continue with that work for the next few weeks. I told her I thought we probably would.
We talked about meds and med management. While we were hospitalised we were taking invega orally because we were starting the trevicta which is the 3 monthly shot and she was topping it up with oral invega also but now we’ve stopped that completely and are only on the prozac, lyrica, halcion for sleep and haldol prn.
We talked about respite and how nervous I am about it. I go on Monday. I am looking forward to it but I am very anxious. She said she thought it would be a great addition to my support system going forward in the future. She’s probably right.
Allie came out and talked to her. They had a good chat. She is so kind to the kids. It melts my heart because they have hardly anyone to talk to in person so its great they can feel comfortable enough to talk to her.

  1. It’s great that you had so good appointment with Dr Barry. It was good to tell her about that nurse. And it’s good that Allie could talk with Dr Barry, great that she and other kids have someone like her and that they get on well. 🙂
