I have an appointment with my Psychiatrist tomorrow morning. Although these appointments do tend to help with things I always find them stressful. It seems so final to see someone titled a psychiatrist to me, as though this person knows my brain better than anyone.

Anyway I’m hoping he can shed some light on why my mood has been so up & down recently. This is probably the most up & down period I’ve had since I was diagnosed three & a half years ago. Maybe my meds need tweaking as I’ve been on the same ones since that diagnosis. Changing my meds in itself is somewhat stressful, as I’ve come across plenty of negative horror stories of problems on new meds.

Anyway wish me look, hopefully I’ll have a better view on everything tomorrow after 10am. Fingers Crossed!!!
