Hey all. I hope that this post finds each of you well and with less pain. I wanted to update you on what is going on. I went to the Psychologist today and......I'm not real tickled with the ideas but, as always I'll go along and try to do what I can on my part to make this work.
Anyway, my appointment with my new Psychologist was interesting as well as troubling to me. I spent 50 min. listening to him tell me that 3 other psychologists are reporting that I HIDE my pain and do not tell my doctors the TRUTH as to how much pain I am really in. This kinda of irritated me, but well if my doc wants me to do this then so be it.
I don't know what each of you talk to your psychologists about, but it seems that for the next year (yes I said a year) I will be writing in a journal about how my childhood was both good and bad, what I do each day and what helps and doesn't help to relieve my pain, as well as other things that will be addressed at each meeting.
He wants to see me once a week for the next year but unfortunately since I cannot drive myself 150 miles to Wichita, I will have to cut this time down. Hubby is preparing to start "Harvest Season" and will not be allowed to take anytime off during the next two weeks (looks like this will be starting at the end of the month). He''ll be working about 10 hours a day 7 days a week for two weeks straight and with the price of the psychologist visit.....I don't know how much I am going to be able to afford out of my pocket.
I apologize if any of my sentences do not make any sense, I took my night meds (2 Kadian...a percocet...2 Robaxin, a 20 mg Lexipro, 1 celebrex and 1 Lunesta) a few min ago and it seems that it is catching up with me fast.
Anyway.....I want to get you all's take on what you talk to your psychologist about during your visits. You don;t have to go into detail, but is your childhood and any bad relationship apart of this?
Gotta go for now....I'm sleepy and gotta go to sleeeeep. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!
P.S. Again I apologize for the confusion in my post and probably a few typos as well as some grammatical errors.
