Since my last blog I have now almost titred off the propanolol. I also saw an occupational health doctor at works request which was fine even though I had to recount the last few months which is never pleasant. It helped that I had written a short history to give to him which he was able to read.
In terms of my health nothing much has changed. The stress of being off work has subsided a bit but thoughts of the future remain daunting. My focus for the next two weeks is to quit alcohol and get some more exercise to help me sleep better. The book on depression by Dr Tim Cantopher was so good I got hold of his book on alcohol for some inspiration.
I have also received an appointment to see the mental health link worker with a view to maybe seeing the psychiatrist for medication review but have to wait a month. I was aware that the wellbeing services were under pressure and that just confirms it
Stay well people.
