    A New Psychiatrist

    Hi.
    I went to see a new psychiatrist today. I feel proud of myself for doing the research, waiting for apt and following through. I want my meds to be prescribed by an appropriate doctor, not my primary care doctor. All empowering steps. I didn?t tell him everything, just where I am now. I?m doing well.
    This is another big step posting this here. Blush.

    Well done to you! Always daunting seeing a new person for the first time. Hope it works for you in the future.

    That's awesome Jamie. Nothing makes my anxiety worse than seeing a new doc for the first time. You got through the first appointment and that's usually the worst in my experience. Good to hear you're doing well
    You're going to lose people in your life, and realize that no matter how much time you spent with them or how often you told them you loved them, it will never seem like it was enough.

    Hug the ones you love.

    Thanks. It feels good having this new doc and new team. He’s a resident doc so after my apt the top doctor(?) comes in to repeat everything back. I feel like I’m in good hands. I plan on being extremely truthful but a little at a time. This way we build trust.
    Thanks for responding Otherside and invisableguy. Have a wonderful day.
