I saw Dr. Barry this morning

I had a good appointment with Dr. Barry this morning. I went up there early, I got there by 9 AM. I had to get my shot, but I wasn’t supposed to get it until 9:30. But, Kay, the nurse who gives the shots, was free at 9 AM so I was able to get it then. I was feeling very tired, as I had broken sleep last night. I had fallen asleep on the couch around 10 PM, and I woke up at around 2 AM, so I went in to bed then. Anyway, I was exhausted this morning, so after I got my shot, while I was sitting waiting for Dr. Barry I started to doze off. I kept startling myself awake, then I’d realise I’d dozed off, and I was trying to keep myself from doing that. Eventually Dr. Barry came to get me. We had a great appointment. We talked about christmas, and the christmas break, we talked about my mom, and how she’s doing. We talked about therapy, and the fact that Eileen was sick before christmas so I didn’t have a session before christmas. We discussed my meds, and my sleep. I was telling her how I slept well when I was at my parents house…but that since I’ve come back home my sleep is broken. We did not change any meds, or do anything different, I feel as if for the most part I am stable, I just needed my shot, and now that I’ve gotten it, I should be ok for a while. As we were walking out we were talking and Dr. Barry tripped. She almost fell flat on her face. I was like, OMG, don’t fall because if you do I won’t be able to pick you up! We both laughed then and Dr. Barry said "I am probably going to jinx myself, but I’ve never broken any bones". I was like, well, take your time walking back to the office, so you can keep that trend up and not break anything. I will see her again in two weeks. I have a 9 AM appointment again thenext time that I see her.
