I just met with my new psychiatrist doctor. I really like her but we are still getting to know each other.
As you know, if you have been following, I had to use my rescue meds. I tried getting in to see her but I could not move my appointment. i was not in crisis either so it wasn’t a HUGE deal either.
I tried to explain all this to her, but i was like talking in circles. If I had my old doctor we would be on the same page. It just makes me sad that I don’t have my old doctor. There’s no closure there. Just an abrupt BOOM never see him again because of insurance.
I like my new doctor. She asks good questions. She wants to get to know me. She is interested in me. I appreciate that. She trusts me. She seems to know what she is talking about.
We discussed how I was taking my meds and she advised me on the best way for me to take my meds. I had been taking my lamictal all at once but I thought I should be taking it in the AM and PM. She explained to me why that was the best idea. It made sense because it was not extended release.
I know it’s going to take time. We are already on the same page. I just have not stopped mourning the loss of Dr. P. I like Dr. G. my new doc. It’s just going to take some time to be lock step like it was with Dr. P. We will work on it.
