Where it looks like your shrink is trying not to laugh?
This morning I had an app with my new shrink. I haven’t seen anyone since before Christmas, its fortunate I keep a mood diary so I can say how I have been since seeing someone, but as it was a new shrink, it means we have to go through the process from the beggining which means I may end up with a whole new hosts of labels. I wonder what I shall get this time.
Anyway I try and explain everything, which is tough in a 20 minute session and like always, my flip side tends to come out. I explain the ups and the downs and then I get to the OCD part and always having four weeks worth of shopping, like fairy liquid, bleach that sort of thing. Which then leads on to my cleaning rota and how each room is done on a different day with phonecalls being done on a Friday.
She honestly looked at me as though I was going insane, I don’t think she could believe what she was hearing.
I am not sure if when she looks at me her view of me is different to what is coming out my mouth. I am very vocal when it comes to talking to doctors, a friend told me they are there to help and can’t unless you tell them what is wrong. So I make sure I say what is in my head, which is not always a good idea, plus I am still a bit manic so talk faster anyway.
Anyway thats it for another 2 months, she has put me on some nice drugs for the anxiety, and we will go from there.
