Head Shrinking

A while back my PCP put me on some anti-anxiety meds and they allowed me to focus on what was going on a little better…but those tears still leaked out any time a touchy subject was brought up.

So, I made an appointment with the (note: ONLY) psychiatrist who deals with Medication mgmt in my insurance plan, and I went to see her. Boy was I surprised to find her eager to talk about my feelings, but also to explain why the anti-anxiety meds were taking the edge off, but not helping me as much with the sadness…so she prescribed me a heavy duty SSRI. Now, if I have to go on Tamoxifen, going to have to come off of it, but she thinks it will help with the emotional control. Mostly I’m just scared to be taking this many pills, but the more I read online, the more I realize that’s perfectly acceptable, especially in situational depression like mine.

So… drug me up some more, I guess, as I’ve got to get through 4 more weeks of work and the crying has GOT to stop. Seeing her again next Saturday, so let’s hope I see some good results with this pill…
