January 29 - Psychiatrist & Counselor Appointments

Saturday, February 02, 2019

For the 1st time in 3 years, since my diagnosis, I am seeking help. I have Major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and PTSD. I had called 2 psychiatric hospitals on January 28th. I was told I didnt meet the criteria to be admitted because I wasnt a harm to myself. Long story short, I found a private practice psychiatrist in the town where I live. They also have counselors. I had called on the 29th to inquire about services. They set me up with a psychiatrist apt on February 26th. Then I meet the counselor Monday, February 4th.

I have realized in the last month its hard to focus on your physical health when your mental health is a mess.

It will be 6 - 8 weeks before I am "back to my normal", and I cant wait!

    It takes courage to reach out for help...glad that you did and were able to make appointments. Good luck as you continue on your path to “normalcy.”

    I want to pat you on the back for getting help, it's the hardest thing to do. I start seeing a psychiatrist again in march, I have felt better than I have in years since I started my anti depressants last year but there is still room for improvement.
