Medical Update

This past week where have I been hiding?! Well... no where too exciting. I'm actually attending a day treatment at the hospital, as my anxiety and depression wasn't getting any better. It was actually getting worse, and I didn't want to wait any longer until the referral that is in a few weeks. So I've been enrolled in a day treatment program for anxiety and depression that was referred through the ER. I'm finally getting the care that I've needed for far too long. I just started the program this week on Monday, and I must say I should have done this over a year ago. Why hasn't anyone suggested this to me before?

It's a three week program that is daily, which includes a psychiatrist, social worker, group therapy, even meditated yoga. I'm still having issues with the insurance company... I'm not able to work during my condition, and it's a real headache and added stress. My medication has been changed as of today, which I will be cutting my Clonazepam from .50mg to .25mg, which is half a pill. Taking it with the new Seroquel has turned me into a zombie, and I can't function. I seem to keep zoning out out of the blue, even if I'm in the middle of a conversation. After a few days of the change in medication, I will update you on how I'm doing. For now... I'm heading to bed early, as I seem to have night terrors, and never seem to get enough sleep.
