Check-up


Today I went for a check up with my doctor to see how things were doing since my last visit a few weeks ago.

When I was sat in the waiting room I couldn’t shake this feeling that I was wasting his time. I was reading all of the posters about missed appointments and how busy they were and thought to myself, am I just wasting their time? Am I being melodramatic? I hope they’re not annoyed with me…

It’s so sad when I think about it, because depression and eating disorders are valid problems that require medical assistance. If a family member was going through it and even once questioned their right to see a doctor, I’d roll my eyes at them! 

Here’s a picture of my cat just to lighten the mood:


Anyway, the actual appointment went ok. I basically explained that the antidepressants were giving me a big boost and helping me to make my way forward. I’ve also got an appointment for cognitive behavioural therapy in September, so everything is moving in the right direction.

I’ve had a good week this week, but today I’m feeling a bit flat. I’ve had one of those days where I seem to do everything wrong and all the little annoyances add up until you’re just fed up. 

Anyway that’s about it for this blog post, I just wanted to keep you updated with how I’m doing. 

I hope that if anyone is reading this and putting off an appointment because they feel like they’re wasting someone’s time, that this has given you some strength to make that phone call.

As always, follow me on Twitter @HollyRobiin for updates and many, many cat photos!
