A Mental Assessment

I’ve posted before that I’ve been using BetterHelp for therapy and I talked with my therapist about taking medication. I’ve done this before but I went to a general practitioner for this. So, the medication I took was not very on point. I took Escitalopram and Lexapro which are basically the same thing. My therapist advised that I should go in for a psychological assessment to get a better idea of what medication I might need to try.

I’m nervous for this assessment since I know I’ll be asked questions that will force me to spill the beans I was planning to eat (I’m hoping someone understands that LiS reference). However, I’ll be recieving answers that I’m in desperate need of. I dont know if this is a bad phrase to say but I feel like I need to know the name. The label. I need to know what’s wrong so I can obsessively research ways to help myself. I need to find an answer because I desperately want to be someone I’ve thought about for years. I want to be outgoing and talkative and sometimes I can pull that off but there are days where I just can’t do it.

So, I’ve found a place to do assessments and I emailed them. The doctor that got back to me was fast and super sweet. I need to check the schedule for work and then I’ll be set to get an appointment in. It feels good to have that on the way. I feel a little optimistic, now.

Lemme get off my phone. I’m typing this while in the passenger seat of a moving car and I can feel a vague stomach ache coming on. See you online!
