Follow up Dr appt today

Friday, June 21, 2013

Went to my dr today she is very happy with my progress my thyroid levels are getting back to normal just a little bit more meds and I should be good

She was happy with me being down in weight, and I am back at my WW meetings, and encouraged me to get my fruit and vegies in every day , so will be working on that been enjoying salads this week very much so that helps,

Talked to her about my sudden anxiety and stress I have been going through ended up crying like a baby in the dr office she is a very empathetic compassionate soul , and she told me what I was feeling was very normal

Going through the past few years what I did its called post traumatic stress syndrome and its nice to have a name of what it is I am going through

She said though I am doing the right things and very happy its been three weeks and have not turned to food when anxiety hits, and encouraged me that it will get better I just need to recover and know that this stress is not here to stay so very positive

Sad thing is she is leaving so I have to pick a new dr very hard so I cried again!!! anyways enjoying my day off so far.

    Hey, good for you having such good progress! Sounds like you have a doctor you can really talk to. I'm sorry you're losing her. It took me forever to find my doctor. You're doing great.

    So sorry you cried at your Doctor's appointment. Been there, done that! Could write a book about it! Did she recommend someone for you to talk to regarding your post-traumatic stress? When I talked to my primary doctor (an internist) about my PTS, he suggested a psychiatrist that accepted my insurance. Seeing her was the best thing I ever did! She has taught me a lot and really helped me through a lot of my life issues. She was also able to prescribe medication to help me with depression and anxiety (which you may or may not need - another reason to seek professional help). In the beginning I saw the psychiartist once a month, and a counselor once a week. I don't see the counselor anymore (worked through my issues) and I only need to see the psychiatrist twice a year for medication management.

Best of luck to you on your Spark journey. I hope you find a new doctor who is as good as the one you have now. Enjoy your three-day weekend!
