Saw the shrink earlier. I’m telling him about some things I don’t like and the topic of medication change comes up. I’m not one going for change just for it’s own sake but I think there is merit in a change and I explained why. His response was typical shrink: “Come back in x months and if y has happened, we’ll do z”. So while not expecting this response right here and now, I have seen medics use this tactic far too many times – it is short for “I can’t be arsed” or “I’m not sure” or “I have to ask the real Dr”. So I challenged him. I pointed out that in x months if y HAS happened he will blame it on another event we discussed and if y has NOT happened he will do precisely the same – so in x months we would be no further forward. So why not do it now. So he agreed. Result is that my reality will alter slightly (at least I hope that is the case) for the next few weeks and then hopefully settle at a level I am comfortable with but without the specific effects I’m having which were the force behind the change. I wonder if any changes will be noticeable here ?
Plugin Idea: Graph number of entries / week with size of entries / week and display over time. Would be interesting to see if there is a discernable difference.
Yesterday, P had a friend over and when they were playing a game in the back garden, a ball got hit into a back neighbours garden. Off she goes to get it back. Knocking on the door of the house in question, an old lady answers and asks P where she lives. On hearing the answer, the old lady says “Oh, your father is the new Vicar then ?”. (P put her right :) )
