17:18 – Spoke to social worker, seeing GP tomorrow
Posted Feb 28 2011 12:20pm
Since I posted earlier I have spoke to my social worker and she told me the psychiatrist has made me an appointment to see my GP tomorrow morning. I asked my social worker to come with me as I hate going by myself and to be honest from how I’ve been hiding in the house so much I probably wouldn’t even go if I had to go alone.
She also suggested I phone the psychiatrist and have a chat with him about how I’ve been feeling etc but he had gone home for the day I guess as there was no answer. They didn’t give her any discharge meds for me either and so I’m going to have to try and make up my bedtime dose of 200mg Quetiapine and my morning dose of 200mg out of 25mg tablets as that’s all I have here. Same with the 175mg Lamotrigine I only have some 25mg’s left.
We talked briefly about ‘self responsibility’ and how I have to attend my appointments and see support workers etc to start trying to get better again because if I keep on like this: hearing Patty, more cutting, isolating myself etc etc then I’ll end up back in hospital I guess and I’m not going to let that happen this time. It’s just taken a bit longer than I expected to get back to living in the real world… I thought it would be fine as it had been fine every other time I was out on a weekend pass but this time I just couldn’t seem to cope with it all. However, I did go out briefly yesterday and I will have to go out to see the GP tomorrow morning so maybe I’m heading in the right direction despite hearing Patty again.
Anyway that was all I wanted to say, I’ll post tomorrow after seeing GP.
