Well, I saw the psychiatrist and it went well. I had a whole hour and we covered a lot of ground. He says I'm strong and I've lived through a lot. We're going to have lots of talking visits first so he can figure out what will help me the most. Next visit is on Monday. When I took the slip up to the desk for them to program the visit in, the receptionist was shocked at how soon it was so I said, 'Apparently I've lived a full life.' Another staffer around the corner burst out laughing, totally lost it.
This was a good thing. I told him how long I've been trying to see him and he was shocked. He was wondering why so I explained about the nurse whom I did not get along with and what happened and said that it was only speculation, but that it may have influenced my care.
