Been to see my lovely psychiatrist today.
She somehow saw me and straight awayknew I've been putting up my smiley front to fend off worries again. I supposedly go really hyper and smiley when I'm trying to hide from things.
I suppose she's right, and i think she's also probably made a good desicion.
Having read through my notes about all recent diagnosises, she knew I wouldn't be coping well.
She didn't expect my front. But knew it was there, and discussed options with me.
She decided that the best thing to do, would be up my sertraline in readyness for when thinks do start to hit me bad. I know it will happen, she know's it will happen, just a matter of when.
At the minute, I'm not thinking, and not listening to things. And it's suiting me well.
My doc is also getting a meeting together between my nurses, her and my boyfriend and me. There going to explain future things to my boyfriend which will hopefully stop him stressing himself into panic attacks.
It's true!: Smile and the whole world smiles with you. Frown and the world turns upside down.
 Diagnosed with: Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma, ABPA, Clinical Depression, Mild liver cirrohsis, mild osteopenia. Waiting for final diagnosis on Muscular Dystrophy type symptoms.
 Allergies: Any dressing except Mepilex border. Even plasters make my skin blister. Hayfever, Tazocin, Tobromycin, Ibruprofen, Asprin, Codeine, Mirtazapine.
I have a pretty little port-a-cath on left side of chest wall

Hi Darkies
I am so glad that someone saw thru you!! So many times we walk around with that front and no one knows that
we are a mess inside.
Even though your b/f has panic attacks. It sounds like he loves you and worries about you. You are very very lucky. It took me 35 years (well not since birth but you know what I mean) to find someone that cares enough about me to worry.
I hope the increased dosage does well for you!!

Good Luck and keep us posted

It is easy to go along and pretend everything is ok. People ask how you are and you reply 'oh Im fine',. I did this for too long. Im glad she saw through you and saw that you needed help.

Take care hun
