Saw Dr. Barry today also

I saw my psych Dr. barry today also. I had an appointment at noon. Unfortunately, the clinic was super busy, so I didn’t get seen until after 2 Pm!

We had a very productive appointment. I talked a lot to her about my health, my diabetes apt that I had this morning, my upcoming dietician apt, and we also talked about the apt I’d had yesterday with the community mental health nurse Sarah.

I set some goals with Sarah yesterday, mostly around my healthy eating, and exercising.

Sarah and I are currently working on that in our individual sessions.

Dr. Barry asked me if I wanted to change any of my meds, or if I was happy to leave things as they were.

I said I am currently very happy with the meds that I am on. I have some anti-anxiety meds, in case of emergencies, and I didn’t need any extra.

We talked a little about therapy. I was telling her that we’ve been doing a lot of trauma work in the past couple of months. We’ve been working very hard on it. She asked me if I felt the system had shifted since we started working on trauma issues. I told her there is some push back but we’re still progressing.

She said she’s very happy for us. She said we’re managing despite everything, and that is a real positive.

I agree. We’ve had a lot to deal with in the last six months. It is surprising to me that we’ve coped as well as we have.

I reminded her that our six year anniversary of being out of the psych ward had just passed. We talked a little about that also. I told her it still feels surreal that I’ve been out of the hospital for so long.

We made another appointment for two weeks time, and I’ll also get my Trevicta shot that week.

I’m so lucky that I see her every two weeks, it is so consistent, and that is what we need, consistency.

She’s really a wonderful psych, so thorough, and so compassionate, kind, and caring.
