Today, I visited my GP….I was not looking forward to it, as I was supposed to see her at the end of May 2011! What would she say? Positive or negative things? Well, here’s a list of positive outcomes from the appointment:-
- increased my thyroxine dose (no wonder I’ve been feeling so tired!)
- referred me to the community mental health team so that they can help me cope for a while and get me ‘back on track’.
- suggested exercise was necessary and referred me to the PARIS scheme, which will help me exercise at the gym, swim, go on guided walks, etc to help to improve my fitness and mood.
- discussed the various antidepressants I’ve been on over the years, but decided to leave me on the present one to see how I get on with the above ( Phew! I do hate coming down off one and building up another..so unsettling and something I didn’t need just now!)
So, despite having three craftsmen in the house today doing various parts of the renovation, I’m feeling better today and looking forward to these activities helping me back on the road to recovery
