Today was a good day. I went to see Dr. BigHeart for a check-in. I was fasting because I didn’t know if I would get an ECT treatment or not. Ultimately Dr. BigHeart determined that I didn’t need a treatment, which was a big vote of confidence for me and my current mental health. I will go have a treatment on Wednesday, then next week on Friday.
Dr. BigHeart also wrote a letter clearing me for a return to work next week. I will only be able to work Monday through Thursday, because I will have treatments on Fridays for at least the next couple of weeks. I am very apprehensive about the return to work.
Now I have a gripe regarding the Olympics. I’m just watching the speedskating and the Americans have these black uniforms on and I’m like, what the shit? They should be red, white and blue! There are a lot of strange-colored uniforms for the Americans. Who is responsible for this???? I do NOT approve.
Tomorrow I have an intake appointment for this DBT Intensive Outpatient program I’m going to do. Has anyone done DBT before? I don’t know what I’m in for exactly but DBT was strongly recommended for me and since I’m desperate to get better, I said OK. I’ll report back what I find 🙂
