I forgot to write about this. My therapist….wait, did I write about this?
My therapist advised that I get on some mood stabilizers. He said he is no doctor but from his experience, it sounds like that is what I need. He assured me no SSRI’s. THANK GOD. He actually knows my family doctor well, which is good I guess. So I scheduled an appointment with my doctor, October 30th, to tell him about my symptoms and to see what he prescribes.
I’m nervous. My therapist said to not tell him what my diagnosis is, and to only tell him what my symptoms are. That makes me nervous because I wonder why he said that? Unless he was just offering guidance because I tend to get very anxious and just start blabbing off about everything without a clear direction. I don’t know. Or maybe because he didn’t want my doctor to gain some sort of direction based on a label rather than the symptoms the medication is to help with.
That’s a whole month away. I’m kinda bummed but I think maybe it’s ok. It gives me some more therapy time I guess.
