My appt with my pdoc was pretty interesting today @Zoe7
Normally I'm in and out of her office in 10min. It's usually just a snapshot of my current mood, any issues that are bothering me, whether medication is working or not, and then see you in two weeks.
But today she wanted to know about my relationship with my mother, and had some questions about my background. We actually talked right up to the 30mins slot, and her phone rang to notify her of the next patient. I did not feel uncomfortable discussing those things, but I usually don't anyway with certain people.
She doesn't want to change or add medication, because of my high suicide risk, but I still remain on twice weekly pick ups from the hospital pharmacy. It's a little annoying, but the staff know me very well now, and it's not too far from home.
It's got cold quickly now as the sun sets. But I got my washing out on the line.
How did you go with your car search?

It has been an interesting day for you today then @Sans911 - but good that your pdoc is on top of everything. I can understand that the twice weekly pickups are annoying - I only have weekly pickups and I am finding them annoying but I know it is for my safety and that is still an issue - only a minor issue but still having that temptation there is frought with danger - so I get it.

@Sans911 glad the session with your pdoc went well. She seems caring. Can too understand the twice weekly pick up but safer that way.....for now 💜

Frustrating for you and me, but it's nice I'm not the only one. I've been on this system for nearly a year, and everytime I think maybe this time she'll let me go weekly, I trip up. I understand her concerns.
