So I saw dr. barry yesterday. We had a great appointment. I went up to the clinic early, and I am glad I did. I wasnt even waiting that long before dr. barry came to get me.
We talked a lot about my symptoms. All the usual, anxiety, depression, emilys eating disordered behaviour, sleep, dissociation etc. We also discussed my moms COPD, and eileen still being out sick. I told Dr. Barry the kids really miss eileen, and they are scared she isnt coming back.
Dr. Barry told me that despite the very tough time I am going through, that I have made so much progress, and I shouldnt dismiss that. She said she is proud of me for managing as well as I have been. She said that despite everything going on right now, I’m still coping relatively well. I know she’s right. I have been managing to stay well, and I havent needed the hospital, although I did tell her I am glad it is there as a back up if I did need it. But I was quick to say that I hope that wont be necessary.
She put the weekend team in place again for me this weekend. I am staying home this weekend, not going to my parents, so she said she’d have me visit the weekend team and talk to them face to face. So I’ll probably go up there on both saturday and Sunday.
Other than that she didnt change anything else. We discussed the meds and I told her we’re really making a huge effort not to miss any. Jade is helping me so that we always take the meds, and in the past 2 and a half weeks we havent missed one dose of our meds.
I will see her again next wednesday.
