So… I finally talked to a psychiatrist today. Big step forward? HELL YES.
It was awkward. Really. Really. Awkward.
I can’t really say much about it, really. It went the same way it usually does when I talk to a figure of authority. Awkward silences. Awkward voice. Awkward gestures.
But it was good, really.
He confirmed me having depression and anxiety. Explained a lot of things.
He prescribed me some medication; an anti-depressant and one that aids sleep.
Also, he scheduled another meeting, for therapy.
Today is a good day.
