So good!

It was so good to see Dr. Barry this morning!
I hadnt seen her face to face since last October!
What a relief it was to finally see her face to face!
I just wanted to hug her! I didnt, but man I wanted to!
She asked me if I’d like some water as we walked in to her office, she pretty much always asks me that.
We talked about a lot, mainly my recent worsening symptoms of dissociation, poor sleep, low mood etc.
She has kept me on the same med regime, but she did take me off of the zopiclone, which I wanted to come off of it as I’ve been on it now for 5 weeks, so I felt it was time to see how I’d do without it.
She has kept me on the olanzapine, 15 mg for another couple of weeks, as the voices are still there, intermittently.
They arent as bad now, but they are definitely still there and some evenings they are pretty intense, saying negative things about me, to me, and it is very distressing.
We also talked about therapy and I filled her in on how it was going recently.
I asked her if I can go back to seeing her face to face now, she said yes, if I wanted to. I do. So I will go back to face to face sessions now and man I am so glad!
Their really is no comparison. There is nothing like being in the same room as dr. barry and being able to talk to her about stuff, it is much better than talking over the phone.
You get more of a feel for the person and how they are responding to you, even dr. barry agrees, she said she didnt want to shove her own opinion on me but that she’s glad I asked about going back to having face to face apts, as she said she prefers them to the phone appointments.
That made me so happy to hear that!
