Current Mood: coffee time emoticon coffee time

Most people I’ve told this to are very relieved including my husband…I did not have the treatment as scheduled. Without going into real specific details, I had some concerned when I went in because I was assigned and put into the pshychiatric ward with patients that were very sick…use your imagination on that one. I asked to see my doctor, he came in and told me basically that I didn’t belong here and he pretty much changed my mind about getting the treatments. He advised me to continue taking the new medicine I’m on and increasing the dosage as per our schedule then after another month if I didn’t see real improvement that we will then re-visit our thoughts on ECT. Needless to say I was relieved and got dressed and out of there. I’m switching from relief to disappointment in myself for not going through with it but something in my gut told me NOT to do this at that time and I have to go with that. So far my instincts have never failed me. So….we will continue on and see what happens. Brent has been kind enough to take the rest of the week off and keeps reassuring me I made the right choice. I know he was very concerned when I arrived there and the surroundings I was in. I think he recognized that I didn’t belong with in-patients and that environment was not condusive to my situation. Most of the patients had no grip on reality and it was kind of like being a fish out of water. Who knows…someday I might be in that position and then that is where I will belong but for now, I’m rational and have confidence on what is real and what isn’t.

We are going to watch the weather..supposed to be a heavy storm coming. Rain/maybe snow, not sure yet.

We have been invited to a New Years bowling party and looking forward to that. Should be fun for all 3 of us.

Until later…..Happy New Year to all of you.
