Dr. Barry appointment went quick today!

I saw Dr. Barry this morning. I was up very early, and out the door by 8:45. I was in the hospital waiting to see Dr. Barry by 9 AM!
I treated myself to a latte on the way in! There is a mobile coffee dock just outside the front door of the hospital!
I only had a half an hour wait before Dr. Barry came to get me!
We had a great appointment. I told her I was feeling a little better, my symptoms have lessened a little bit. She was really pleased and said maybe this is a turning point, that the last six months have been so hard for us, and its good we are getting some reprieve now.
We talked about my sleep, and I told her how tired I’ve been lately, that I’ve been feeling super exhausted, and no matter how much I sleep it seems as if its not enough.
She said my body probably needs it, and to catch up because I’ve been sleeping so badly over the past couple of months. I agree, but she also told me if it keeps up and I don’t start feeling less tired, that I should go to my GP and get my bloods done.
We talked about my meds, and the dissociation, and she asked me if when I miss some doses, is it just the dissociation causing it, she wanted to make sure that no insider was stockpiling meds, or sabotaging us taking them. I told her no, no one is doing that, its just the dissociation that makes us forget sometimes, but most of the time we’re not forgetting our meds, we’re taking them most of the time.
She told me she’s going to take a week off in August, but it won’t coincide with the weeks Eileen is taking, so thats good. It means I’ll continue to have support, when Eileen is away Dr. Barry won’t be away, and when Dr. Barry is on holiday eileen wont be on holiday. So that is good.
It was a good appointment, and I will see her again in 2 weeks time. I took an early appointment again. The earlier ones seem to suit me better, and the wait isnt as long which I like.
