My Visit with My New Psychiatrist

Today, I met my new psychiatrist and I think I'm going to like her. All that happened today is that she got a bit of background information on me and she took me off of one of my meds.

One thing that I really liked about her is that she listened and tried to get to know me so she can better understand me, which will help her help me better. From what I understood from the appointment, she's leaning towards bipolar disorder. However, from what she said, my medication didn't cause it, but instead triggered it, which means I've had it all along.

Yeah, I'm confused too. I keep hearing so many different things from different doctors that I'm not sure what is going on sometimes. I'm just going to sit back, relax, and see how things go.

She said she wasn't going to diagnose me anytime soon, because she has to look over my therapist's notes more thoroughly and speak with me more. I go back in two weeks to see how I did on just one medication- the mood stabilizer. Again, going to sit back and see how things go. Mom suggested keeping a daily log of how my mood is. I don't know if that will be helpful or not. We'll see.

Got to go folks! It's class time and then BFF time after that. Adios!
