Doctors Appointment For Tomorrow.

So the weekend has passed and I rang up this morning to book an appointment and got in for tomorrow at 9:30. Part of me is glad that it's early as I can get it over with and it hopefully won't be too busy as I hate waiting for ages.

I'm scared and imagining the worst to happen. I know for a fact I'll cry or get upset in front of the doctor but I need something at this point. I'm hoping they will be willing to talk to me about medication and my options. My doctor didn't want me on medication due to my age but hoping they'll change their mind once I tell them how I'm feeling.

It's ok to cry and donn't hold back any of your feelings they don't judge, but the only way they know how to treat you is if they know every thing . You are going the right thing. If it helps, write your feelings down and if there is anything you want her to know. So you don't forget . Good luck sweetie, keep us posted

I am waiting right now. My appointment is at 9:30 but I highly doubt I'll be in by then :( Waiting is a pain at my doctors.

Just go with what they gave you and just know sometimes it takes a few weeks to kick in, if you notice your feeling worse call your doctor. But try and give it a chance

I've just started talking my medication today and I'm expecting to perhaps feel a bit worse before I get better :)

Yes sometimes , you have to figure out what time of day works best for you, sometimes if you take it at night you don't sleep well , sometimes if you take it in the morning you feel sleepy so you have to see how it makes you feel to know what time of the day to take it so it's kind of like a crazy game in the beginning of it all . You might even get a little stomachache in the beginning to so try to keep with it for a couple weeks until those little side effects go away and then see how you feel, but if for any reason you're getting any major side effects which you probably will not get any , make sure you let your doctor know . I know it all sucks but in the end you may end up feeling a whole lot better and happy that you I know it all sucks but in the end you may end up feeling a whole lot better and happy that you text me did it. If you can, keep a log from day to day to see how you're doing , talk to you soon
