    Dr.M - my new psychiatrist - a report
    marysings posted:
    Yes, Dr.M did remember me from the psych hospital where he had filled in for the inpatient psychiatrist on the weekends. He asked me how many times I had been in and I made a guess of 7 times. He asked if I was on the trauma unit every time and I said yes.

    He wanted to know if I was using my DBT and CBT skills to stay grounded. I told him yes but sometimes it was pretty difficult. He also said I could help myself by going through my affirmation cards, writing, or drawing.

    He asked who was my therapist and I told him Dr.B. He asked for Dr.B's phone number. I wish I could be a mouse to hear that conversation!

    He asked if I thought my current meds were helping and I told him I was sort of on the fence about that. I told him I had some days where I was on a virtual roller coaster all day. He agreed those would be difficult days. I told him I would rate my depression as a 7 on a 10 point scale, 10 being the worst. He said he would not make any med changes right now.

    He asked what Dr.B and I were working on and I lowered my head as the tears started. I told him just a little bit about it and he was horrified when I told him that both my parents were sexually abusive to me. He asked if I wanted to go inpatient to work on this specific trauma to get through it quicker rather than just one therapy hour per week. I told him no.

    He gave me prescriptions for all of my meds and told me he wanted to see me in 2 months. He said to remember I could call him anytime.

    I think it was a good first appointment.

    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart.  Have patience with me as I heal.
