hi guys. I go for another appointmetn with the p-doc today and I honestly don't know what to say. I have all these pics in my mind about what's been happening the past two weeks, but when I try to talk about them I sound stupid(or that I can't get my point across to my own satisfaction) i think I might write some stuff down this time.

Anyway. just thought I'd through that out there because I'm having a really hard time these days and it seems like nothing is getting fixed for more than a day.

my house is a mess, can't bring myself to do anything about it, and I'm starting to have thoughts of planning a roth IRA at the same time thinking I won't be around long enough to enjoy it.

I think writing it all down is a great idea. As I type I am doing the same. So I don't forget how I felt 20 days from my appointment. I think it is important that I give my Pdoc the most accurate account of what has been happening since I saw him last. So I give you kudos. Do it.

It's so hard to tell your Pdoc what the real deal is. I always end up saying how great I feel the morning of, while days before, I was on the floor bawling. Write it down! I'm trying to document my ups and downs for the month- so my Pdoc can get the truth out of me. Good luck!

The best thing to do is to write things down between the psychiatrist appointments. This way you don't forget anything. You won't leave anything out. He'll get what's been going on with you for the last month and be able to help you better than you telling him how you have been feeling the last couple of days. I wish you luck at your appointment.
