My appointment with Dr. Barry

Well I had my appointment with Dr. Barry this morning. I told her everything, no holes barred. I didnt leave anything out.
When I finished, she said that it seemed from what I was saying to her that I had dissociative psychosis.
I’ve never heard ot it!
She said I needed to decrease my stress levels as much as I can!
She prescribed zyprexa for me! 5 MG at night!
Thats on top of the 10 MG haldol I already take at night!
The zyprexa will be short term, just to get me over this blip.
She also said she was going to put the weekend team in place for me this weekend as I wont be going to my parents as I am finding my dad too stressful to deal with.
She was really understanding today. She remembered that a couple of years back I had trouble with voices, I didnt really remember that, I know I’ve had them in the past but its fuzzy to me when it was.
My CPN sarah will be calling me on Friday, to check in also.
I need to call Eileen and fill her in on what Dr. Barry said my diagnosis was.
