Today I had my appointment with the psychiatrist. She said that she was happy with my mental status and that I wasn’t a danger to myself or others. She was happy to discharge me from the mental health care team, the START team, and herself. I have to continue to see my G.P. regularly and continue with the blood tests and my medication is to continue as it is. If I have any relapses then I’ll be referred again.
My frustration with this is that I am dosed up on Depakote and my mental illness is shrouded by a chemical haze. How can she get a picture of myself when I am just medicated up to the eyeballs? It seems like they have found the dosage necessary to make me functional and that is that.
