First Appointment with the Therapist – May 13th 2014
It took us about 5 hours to get there but it was well worth it. When we landed we thought we were in the wrong place as it looked like a staff room with people sitting around chatting and drinking coffee, but what a welcome we got. It was such a relaxed atmosphere that I don’t think it would of made any difference if I hadn’t worn my binder or packed, we sat and had a coffee and a chat with the ladies while I waited for my appointment.
This appointment was a getting to know you, so all she went over was family history i.e brothers, sisters, where I grew up, what schools and colleges I went too and so on.
The appointment itself went really well, I would have three appointments with the Psychiatrist and she would then refer me on to the Doctor to discuss hormones. She also mentioned that the Dr likes to see you every three months and also in between those appointments I would still see the Psychiatrist, but because of the distance I have to travel those sessions can be done over Skype, which I thought was a cool idea. But if I miss a doctor’s appointment then the Skype sessions would stop. I really can’t see myself not making those appointments.
I have my next appointment with her on the 11th June and then again on the 7th July so I will update when I next see her.
