Hello everyone, I made it through my appointment! There was a slight delay with patients, so I was there longer than expected. I remained calm and didn't "freak out" once! I had built it up in my head that it was going to be horrible and scary, and that was worse than the real thing. For those of you who don't know, I have bipolar 1 disorder-which is what the appointment was for. I also have other disorders, but bipolar 1 is the most recent diagnosis that I am learning to accept. I will be starting a new medication of depakote. I am a bit nervous about starting a new medicine, but I guess the only way to see if it works is to take it.
Also- shout out to all of the well wishers. I was thinking of you all during my appointment and the things you said/suggested really helped. Knowing I have support means the world to me <3 thank you.
