Today, I finally get to see Dr. Barry face to face, for the first time since early March.
I am so looking forward to going to see her!
We have to do social distancing, and wear masks, but I still get to be in the same room as her which I am very very glad about.
She has said she’ll still guide me to the room and walk me out to my taxi afterwords. She said she is ok to do that.
At least now we can do stuff, like change meds, etc. We couldnt do that over the phone!
Also just talking about stuff will be so much easier. Even Dr. Barry agreed with me that in person, and face to face is much better, as you can gage peoples reaction etc.
So at 3 PM today I will have my appointment.
I’m going to ask her if she can maybe see me next week again, since Eileen is out sick. And if she cant, I will ask her if I can be referred to sarah, the community psychiatric nurse, for phone sessions.
We’ll see. I know if she cant, she’ll see me herself. I know she’d prefer that. And with the current situation, with Liz and Em both struggling, and with me also struggling, I know if its at all possible to do it she will.
