So, I said I would let you guys know how it went... it went good. Better than I expected. She was really nice. Asked all the basic questions. We even laughed a bit. So, she seemed pretty okay to me. Im going to start going every other week I believe.
 
Im hoping this can be it. I hope Im not setting myself up for any failure, but I still think this is what I need and that it will help. Shes also getting me an appt. with the doctor there to see what needs to be done about meds. For now, I am sticking to my Paxil.
 
Also, I've cut down on my Lyrica to once every other day. Withdrawal is kicking my butt! But, I am sticking to it. I want to get off it to see what happens really. So far, I've done worse, but I cant tell if its withdrawal, Fibro, or any contributing factors...
 
Thanks

Hey Christi,

This is fantastic, you see, it wasn't scarey at all. I am so happy for you. And I am happy that you got a good doctor. I see both a psychiatrist and a psychologist and it works well for me. So I am thinking that it will go well for you too. Fantastic!!!

Make sure you let us know how your other appointments go. And as always, we are here for you.

Hugs, Karen

Thanks! It went pretty good, I liked her attitude. We actually laughed a little, which surprised me. It wasnt totally serious in nature, ya know. I told her some stories, which she found interesting...like the whole lawn mower thing! lol I was there for about 2 hours. I just answered a bunch of questions, or more I detailed my feelings using her computer program. Basically she just put down all my details...I was super nervous going into it...but, when I left I felt really good!

This has got to be the most positive thing I've done for myself in a very long time. Im really looking forward to going back and talking with her. I really think she can help me. And Im really going to try to work with her, 100% honesty.

*sigh ...I think I really need this. Regardless, I have been going on practically by myself(without family) and looking back I cant believe I have actually gotten to this point.

Also, my parents took special interest in this therapist thing. Both actually asked me about it, how it went, what she was like, when I go back... they seemed okay with it. But, I was kinda glad to see they took interest in it at least.

Thanks for everything you all have done for me. I couldnt have gotten this far without the support from you all! Thanks!
