Default At last...

I've been getting very frustrated, as my doctor that wanted me to see a psychologist never gave me the referral promised after repeated requests. In the meantime I had a breakdown at work and asked my boss (at same time of telling her I have depression of so many years) if she knew anybody - with our work we have many contacts and good ones in clinics because our clients may need them. She said she'd help and now several weeks later the same nothing...

...I just now received a call from her asking me to go to a certain clinic here tomorrow at midday and ask for this person. Apparently he's a specialist of sorts in both psychology and psychiatry, if that's possible I don't know... Anyhow, he wants to speak to me personally for a time, no payment thanks to my boss, to see where to look to with treatment. Sounds like she briefed him on some parts which in its own way makes me nervous.

I'm sweating here with long-term shit and no previous diagnosis. Not expecting miracles but feels like a life changing moment after over 20 years.

Positive thoughts where are you, mind block mode kicking in already, oh how I love to lose fluency in languages

Me tomorrow

Thank you :)

That wasn't much fun. An evaluative session with psychologist and she was extremely attractive - let's add to the social awkwardness! Could barely look at her anyway, but she was nice and professional. My eight year old niece I'm sure would draw better than my person under the rain...

Basically being referred for psychiatrist for medications, and full therapy program too, should expect a call in few days to couple of weeks. I don't like waiting, too much darkness creeps in while waiting.

In the meantime some tranquilizers, mostly to aid sleep I think. Want to take one now as I don't feel good, very agitated.
