Today was my much waited for new shrink appointment.
Actually, she’s a LPC [Licensed Professional Counselor] but “shrink” easier to say so I’m gonna stick with that.
The office [though it kind of resembled a really nice prison] was freakin’ huge and the staff was pleasant. A very nice change from some of the shrinks’ offices I’ve been to.
I met with the shrink and she did a basic “tell me about your crazy self” interview. We got more accomplished in that hour than I got accomplished in two visits with the Dr. Freud lookalike I went to last month. Also, this lady actually seemed to like me where Dr. Psuedo Freud acted like he was just tolerating me.
I’m not saying I want to be best friends with my shrink but I do expect to not feel like I’m bothering the person with my blatherings.
At any rate, we made a plan of what we’re going to work on, I got set up with a Psychiatrist appointment to talk about starting meds and I have another appointment scheduled with her in a month since that was the earliest Friday appointment she had.
All in all, I left feeling like the whole thing wasn’t a waste of time and that future visits will be equally productive.
Yay for good mental health professionals.
Other than that, I’ve farted around the house, done some dishes and worked so I don’t get behind.
What have you done today?
