I Love My New Pdoc

Posted by Shmooey , 23 January 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

So I commented on someone's blog today to not be afraid to fire their pdoc if the pdoc desperately needed it....and so I wanted to write more on my own blog about how things are going with my new one.
 
I saw her for the third time today (we are having a lot of sessions up front because I am on short term disability through my employer).  We tal...

Four Weeks Short Term Disability

Posted by Shmooey , 16 January 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

This will be my second psychiatric short term disability in the past six months.  I have a much better doctor this time though, who will not just throw me back to the same job full time after only three weeks.  I'd done a two week inpatient program, and the other pdoc just said a week extra is enough and wrote me back.  The new pdoc says it...

Here's A New One - Administrative Leave

Posted by Shmooey , 12 January 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

So I was diagnosed schizoaffective depressive type last Thursday, and I called out from work on Friday because I was too emotional.  I tried going today, but when I got my boss and our lead admin assistant together and updated them on my diagnosis, I lost it again and couldn't get back under control. so they suggested I go back home.

Another New Pdoc

Posted by Shmooey , 08 January 2015 - - - - - - · 0 views

After three years of being treated by residents at one of the "best" university teaching hospitals, I got fed up with what I felt was inadequate care.  I found a pdoc locally who isn't part of any insurance network, but has great qualifications and a willingness to work with me.  I like her.  I think she is a keeper.
 
I was in there f...

If It's Not This, It's That, Or The Other Thing

Posted by Shmooey , 17 December 2014 - - - - - - · 0 views

Brief background for those who don't know me - I have been white-knuckling through severe agoraphobia since early 2012.  Lost a job over it in August 2012 and spent the next eight months unemployed and in full breakdown.  Finally, a pdoc who was a resident at a teaching hospital saw how much distress I was in in late June 2014, and gave me 0.5 m...

Inpatient

Posted by Shmooey , 03 December 2014 - * * * * * · 0 views

So it's been a while since I checked in here - since the end of August.  I am slowly getting caught up on everyone's blogs and forum posts.  I see many new faces - welcome.
 
Some of you know I suffer from extreme agoraphobia.  It came to a head in late August. . I'd been calling out from work, shaking and terrified every time I did le...

Stop This Madness, I Want Out

Posted by Shmooey , 16 August 2014 - * * * * * · 0 views

So after gaining 89 pounds between Geodon and Abilify over the course of a year and a half, I stopped taking Abilify three weeks ago (had already been off Geodon for nine months).  Got Abilify withdrawals, got through it, though not without key people at work now knowing my mental illness (except the DID). Switched successfully back to Haldol which h...

I cried again before leaving for work today.  I left a few minutes late, but I got there with two minutes to spare.  I want to cry now, but I'm sitting in the lunchroom listening to Jim crunch on carrots and vending machines humming.
 
Quiet.  I need it.  I need a lot of it.  I just can't handle the everyday noises the...

Update

Posted by Shmooey , 18 January 2014 - - - - - - · 177 views

Well, since my friends Nataya and brokenme have posted blogs, I guess I will put an update.
 
I am mostly still in remission with my depression, which is a very good thing.  I have my moments when I suffer situational depression - I am dealing with pain right now - but for the most part, I am doing a lot better than I was.  Sitting around 8...
