The last few days have been a tad bleak.
On Sunday night, I was fine.
When bf and I were in bed, he had just turned off his phone, which he had been reading something on, and closed his eyes.
I asked him a question and he gruffly replied he was trying to sleep.
That was the trigger. That was all it took.
I laid awake for hours, initially wondering why he was with me still and if he liked me or what he liked about me.
I also brought some bad dating memories out of the archives, way back in the archives, that I had completely forgot about and stewed/stressed on them for hours.
I ended up crying for a while and then getting up and sitting on the back stairs for a cigarette for some more crying.
On Monday, I felt so low and Im sure tiredness did not help.
I had an appointment with the GP to have my stitches checked. I had a skin check last week and all was fine. I also had a growth on my stomach and had it removed and stitches were required.
The GP advised the growth just looked like overgrown scar tissue, but sent it away anyway to have it checked.
Whilst the GP was cleaning and redressing the stitches I started to quietly cry. I put my sunnies on so she wouldnt notice.
When we were at her desk afterward, I started crying again and she asked what was up and I told her I was having a bad day and felt really depressed.
I reminded her that I was tapering of Pristiq and was on the lowest dosage of 50mg and was due to start Allegron on Monday night.
Whilst she was checking my stitches, she had the “office” girl ring Medicare to see if I had any visits on my Health Care Plan from last year left.
I did, so she was able to book me in with a Psychologist that afternoon in the same medical centre.
You can get 10 free visits a year (covered by Medicare) with a psychologist and more if recommended by the psychologist. I think they call it a Health Care Plan. I found out about it from a previous GP. It wasnt something I was aware was available. Im not sure it is widely know by the general public.
I went and saw Kristina (the psychologist) later than afternoon and had another cry. I was very depressed.
I gave her an overview from 2006 and will be going back to see her next week. She seemed quite nice and said she wanted to help me feel better again.
It would be so nice to have motivation, energy and feel happy again. I cant remember when I last was like this.
My memory is crap though.
Last night I asked bf to put his arm around me, as I wasnt feeling great and after he fell asleep, I had another little cry.
I tend to not cry around him, because it makes him feel uncomfortable and he doesnt know what to do.
As I was a bit quieter than usual, bf thought I was peeved at him, so therefore became peeved at me and hardly talked to me on Monday or Tuesday.
This always seems to happen when I am depressed.
This did not help.
