A Brief Description of My Mental Health Appointments Today

Good Evening, World!!! It has been a long and productive day. I saw my psychiatric nurse practitioner this morning and she has noticed the progress that I have been making in recent months and that she “has noticed all the progress.” We discussed how things have been going for me regarding my many diagnosis and she agrees with me that things appear to be going well with me that no med change is necessary and that once spring gets closer that we will discuss a decrease in meds. We also discussed how my sleep was at the moment and told her that I am getting more sleep but it is all broken up.  We also discussed that my voice are pretty much gone for the moment and that they still say stuff from time to time but it is only whispers and not all that often.

I also say my therapist today. We discussed a great deal about the progress that I have made and the type of coping skills I can continue to use to help me with the continued progress. We also discussed coping skills and a self care plan regarding the Christmas holiday quickly approaching as well as the grief I am dealing with as this is the first holiday without my grandma. I also discussed with him how my voices are mostly nonexistent at the moment. I told him that when I do hear the voices it is only whispers in times of stress.  I have so much more to say about my session with my therapist and would love to say more  but right now, I am really hungry and hope to post again later on this evening if not sometime tonight or tomorrow about it. I do know that he will check in on me on via phone on Friday the 21st, Monday the 24th and Wednesday the 26th before I see him for an appointment on Friday the 28th. I really like my therapist and he is checking in with me to be proactive and preventative. He wants to make sure I continue to make progress.

I really need to get going so I can get something to eat. I hope to post more about my session later on this evening. I want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated. I hope everyone has great rest of your evening. Peace Out, World!!!

Tuesday Morning Ramblings

Good Morning, World!!! I sit here attempting to post yet Lil Gertie is wanting to be petted as well as play. Lil Gertie (my cat) wanting attention is a good. A good thing because it means she is doing her job. Her job as an Emotional Support Animal (ESA).

Today, I have a great deal planned in regards to my mental health challenges. I have an appointment with my psychiatric nurse practitioner for a med management. I also have a two hour group called “Hearing Voices” for people who hear voices. The only time I hear voices is when my depression is severely acting up. I also have an appointment with my therapist today. So today is going to be a day focused on my recovery.

Something I want to do is make more of an effort to blog more often. Preferably, on the daily basis like I was doing. Blogging appears to me helpful for my own mental health and people who read my blog inform me it helps them with their mental health as well.

I should end this post as I need to go catch my bus to attend my appointments today. I hope everyone has an awesome day. Peace Out, World!!!

Depression, Isolation & Voices, Oh My

Good Evening, World. The last couple of weeks haven’t been the easy for me. I dissociated for nearly an entire week and then last week I was severely depressed. I barely did anything last week. I only went to my appointments and DBT group. I pretty much isolated last week. To add on top of the depression, dissociation and isolation, my voices are acting up.

My mental health treatment team is getting so concerned that they think the hospital might be just around the corner and think they are right. I just don’t know what the hospital can do for me but keep me safe. I am not at risk of self harming or attempting suicide but my treatment team fear for my safety when I am dissociated.

Thank you for reading. Peace out World!!!
