Not sure if I mentioned this

Posted by confused , 23 April 2014 · 55 views

My daughter had a blood test to re-check her lipids. In December her cholesterol was 217. We had made changes but her numbers hadn't improved, but we kept with the changes we had made. Her new levels were much better. Her cholesterol dropped about 30 points.

She has had an ear infection for 2 weeks now. She was on one antibiotic for 10 days and now sh...

Medication in hospital

Posted by confused , 22 April 2014 · 92 views

I went to visit a friend with bipolar in the hospital last night. She has been in and out of behavioral health units the past month. She was doing really well before, but she does have manic episodes that lead to hospitalization about once a year.

The last time I visited her in a different place she was very medicated and really hard to understand. No...

Less confused

Posted by confused , 21 April 2014 · 46 views

I think I am finally wrapping my mind around my dx. I have understood schizoaffective for awhile, but when the DDNOS was added I started doubting myself. But, those symptoms were a long time ago, and it was great to feel validated, but they aren't affecting me now. The depersonalization is more of a present day problem, but I knew I did that anyways, j...

saw new pdoc

Posted by confused , 16 April 2014 · 114 views

He is nice. He took history. He said since my medications are working he will keep them the same and that we have room to go up if I need. He just does medication management but no ranting :)

Organization

Posted by confused , 15 April 2014 · 108 views

What do you consider organized? My husband has our cd's organized alphabetically and by type of music. My mother-in-law has a spotless house.

My house is cluttered, it isn't my stuff, it is mostly my husband's and toys. I actually don't take up much space. I don't like to do housework, have little structured time. I set timers to remind me to do thi...

Ch Ch Ch Changes

Posted by confused , 07 April 2014 · 134 views

I have been thinking of changing pdocs for awhile. My meds seem to be working okay, but he sometimes rants, says inappropriate things and is almost always late. Now that i have added dx to schizoaffective (depersonalization disorder and DDNOS) I want to work with someone who is at least open-minded about dissociative disorders, and I don't think he is....

Different affect

Posted by confused , 04 April 2014 · 115 views

I saw tdoc today. She said my affect seemed different than usual. I can't remember the word she used but it was something that meant I seemed more upbeat. I don't know why that would be, but the first thought that came to mind was, how do I usually seem?

She hadn't seen the report from the eval yet because she had trouble opening the link (I did, too,...

Guess I should lighten up

Posted by confused , 03 April 2014 · 128 views

I am used to my daughter rolling her eyes, sighing, correcting me. Sometimes I feel like I must be pretty stupid because I cause her such frustration. But, I went to her school's Open House tonight and all I heard was how brilliant she is. I know she is very intelligent but it is nice to hear it. She can take honors classes next year (she takes honors...

Shhh! It's a secret

Posted by confused , 03 April 2014 · 117 views

The psychologist gave me a link to my report but he told me to only share with clinicians. It has his findings and then pages of graphs and charts and how I answered the various questions. His findings were pretty self-explanatory and I just skimmed over the rest.

Right now, I don't have questions. I told him I didn't plan to announce it to the world...

It's a trip being me

Posted by confused , 02 April 2014 · 92 views

I once told a tdoc that I wouldn't recommend my life to anyone, but it's a trip to be me.

I got an answer from the eval. I don't have DID, but he thinks I have DDNOS with fragments that aren't as separate as in DID. He invited them to come out again. I felt calmer and happy when he said that, but nothing happened. I do think they like him-just a feel...
