Unlocked, Day one

I won't continue with that title, too confusing, it just seemed to be right.

I made it through the day. I saw Dr. Mind at lunch and he could tell I was already very tired, and it got a lot worse, but I made it without tears or a panic attack.

I got a script for low dose valium for the next few weeks. I think everyone is worried that this anxiety is going to be dangerous because I'm still on rather tight suicide watch, I get a reminder every single session with Dr. Mind of what to do if I feel out of control, and nothing has really helped.

I took 1/4 of the valium and I thought it didn't help but now I'm thinking maybe it did something. I need to take the rest of my meds and sleep now.

More later. Neat new thing with Dr. Mind today, another really good reason for Christian therapists. It's a guided imagery with prayer thing and I actually relaxed enough to almost fall asleep. I will be recording this technique.........

Thanks for the report. I'm really looking forward to hear more about guided imagery/prayer.

In Christ, Michal
