Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Dear Dr. Keane, I hope that we do manage to catch up for a chat. Our chat post has gone to Q&A, although I did write more, not sure if you saw. I am available your late morning again (around 11am until 11:30am) and then just after 3pm (all your time). I know that you've been/are busy, so if we don't manage to chat today, I can from 11am onwards tomorrow, your time or can you respond please to what I have written in the post I wrote on what was our chat post please, although am hoping to actually chat at somepoint to you and I'm sorry that my schedule is so busy today with only a couple of windows free.
Hi, yes I did see your comments that are now in Q&A. Going to be difficult but I'll try and get online when you are here.
just made it I hope
I am here
I think I must have logged in as you were stepping out.
I very much appreciate your trying to be online at the same time as me. I do think today I literally missed you by a minute as it said you were in chat and the you'd stepped out after I said hi. These things happen....I have to work this evening. I will leave as quickly as possible to be back on here. I am also trying my best to be here as quickly as I can at the times I say I will be here. Well. we're busy people at times I guess. Glad you're still wanting to chat though and hope we manage soon. Glad you saw what I wrote that's now Q&A. I wasn't sure if you had or not you see.
I know we missed each other again much earlier. I had work to do and could not have been here. If only I could be in 2 places at once.
I am going to make a concerted effort too, to be here as late as I possibly can.
glad I took this minute to check in...
so your appt went well
I think so. Got my questions answered anyway in a pleasant manner
good and you weren't too anxious..
and got more fluoxitine, perhaps just as well as had a really tough week.
no not as anxious as I was the first time.
I got a bit anxious waiting but remembered to take some deep breaths and tried to think positively and knew it wouldn't take too long.
I'm glad you took her advice, you know my opinion is if it helps take it
you know each time you go to the GP you will feel less and less angst....
yes, taking both her and your advice.
well, shouldn't be for another 6 months. It looks like that's how much she's given me again. Actually it was a different GP this time as mine was on holiday, but that was ok
she said how I was taking it - for those 10 days was good and just fine.
yes, it's fine that it was someone else so you agreed to stay on for another six months and I agree
Only 10 days a month and it works...it's good
yes, apparently some women take it all the time. I was told to try it just for round about and including my period.
and that sees me through the pmt. Not too many side effects coming off and going back on as it's a low dose and for a short time.
keeps your hormones balanced on those days...
She said how each month may be a bit different, which, well, I know that. This month's being really bad, so I reckon next month will be better again.
Yes that's right, all to do with hormones. The GP said nicely how they are tricky things at times.
Yes and if you were on it all the time you may find a more balanced mood but it works well enough without taking it everyday and you can handle the minor fluctuations
Felt awful some days this time. Just so, well, I don't know, vulnerable and reckoning I wouldn't get anything done. None of it true of course.
Yes, minor, I can handle.
but you got everything that was important done so worrying about it did nothing....
except upset you a bit
have you put any thought into the CV? I know you'll get it done when you can...
I have a complete draft of my cv
great! have you shown it to anyone?
I want to make a few adjustments because one or two bits could be worded better.
gotten any feedback?
No, not yet. Last week I had a really bad virus so didn't want to spread my germs.
I think my brother knows someone who is good on cv's so may see what I get from that.....Not sure.
good..don't need to spread germs....wish everyone thought that way!
You'll get it done, don't worry if it isn't worded perfectly. It's always good to have someone read and offer suggestions
that's true, hadn't given that side of it much thought, will do now though.
I have to scoot, I just wanted to try and catch you....btw, DA last episode was Sunday....I did not know anyone was leaving the show so I was like.....really? then others told me they knew. I heard that it was the only way since they had such a strong relationship, it was the only way.....sad :(
I was like that too.Someone else told me too
It was sad.
Call the Midwife is really good.
Yes it is, I look forward to it's return for season 2.
Hope you get the second season of that soon too.
Thank you so much for chatting. Even though took us awhile to connect.
Think I'm going to have a cup of tea soon.
There is going to be season 2...you are welcome, glad your appt went well.....we'll chat again soon! sounds like a good idea....I'm going for the coffee though!!
have a good week...
Hope you do too. Enjoy your coffee.
