dr. barry apt

had our apt with dr barry today. it went well.
we werent waiting long at all before she called us in. the clinic was pretty quiet.
she told me it was a good thing i wasnt coming in last week, as she got snowed in and couldnt come in to work on wednesday, thursday or friday.
i talked to her about my anxiety. i told he r how bad it has been. she asked me if i knew why i was so anxious. i said i felt overwhelmed. overwhelmed because i’ve been trying to sort out the system, its been very chaotic lately.
she asked me if i am putting a lot of pressure on myself and expectations on myself to try to fix things when i cant. i said probably thati always seem to do that.
she was looking back on my notes and she said the anxiety seemed to start after our did reassessment. that hadnt even occured to me but when I thought about it she’s right.
that did reassessment was huge.
we talked about sleep, i told her ours was still off.
she didnt really have any suggestions for me, other than to try to put a bedtime routine in place, and stick to it.
thats hard for me though. i just cant seem to do it.
we talked about therapy. i told her that we’ve had a few pretty intense sessions lately. but that we’re progressing and doing some EMDR to process memories.
I asked her about meeting the new social worker on her team. She said she’d make a formal referral. And that I could meet her maybe in two weeks time.
I’m thinking she can help me with funding for some equipment, not sure if she’ll be able to do it but I’ll ask her.
that was about it, it was a shorter appointment today.

  1. I’m glad the appt went well for you. 🙂 Sleep routine is hard to keep, I know it, and even if you get it in place, it’s very easy to fall out of it, I’ve been there multiple times. I hope your anxiety lessens soon for you and the whole system.


  2. It probably would be good if you could do some sort of bedtime routine as I’m noticing that the littles come out in the middle of the night and then they’re scared. I would think they should be inside. that would cut down on the likelihood of some four-year-old coming out and not making it to the bathroom. It sounds like your Wednesday went well. I hope this is the last of the winter storms for you.
