Well, today was my much awaited appointment with my new psychiatrist. Maybe something will change for the better this time. He diagnosed me as bipolar II, which I have long suspected. And added that to the list of Anxiety, and OCD. So, my meds were added onto. Kind of embarrassing for me to say but, I will now be taking lithium carbonate and then bu-spar as needed and still the Anafranil. A whole host of fun medication! But maybe it will help. I will start it tomorrow afternoon as the pharmacist had to order it.
He is a kind man, maybe from India? He seemed to listen and take into account all I was saying. Which was nice, but at the same time, I wonder about him. Was he really interested? Did he really hear everything I was saying? I don't know. He said I seemed like an intelligent person, so who knows. Just glad it is over. Now I am just a bit scared to start the meds, I hope there are no weird side effects I encounter. I hope it helps. I go back in 2 weeks. And he recommended I start therapy again. Which, they always recommend! So nothing new there! So...that was my day.
I am still anxious and uneasy from yesterday. But hopefully in a few days I will feel better. We'll see. ♥
