I went to the doctors today and saw my 3rd doctor in as many visits.
This one actually properly listened to my symptoms and self diagnosis and asked me what I wanted to do and gave me choices. My first doctor was wonderfully caring but didn't want me to have any medication, the second doctor was a moron who relied on Wikipedia so fingers crossed this doc knows what she's doing.
This doc seemed horrified that I had felt so bad last Tuesday and said I didn't have to feel that bad anymore. She actually wants me to have counselling as well because I mentioned that I get depressed from time to time. I said no cos I am rubbish but I just couldn't do it.
She also wants me to have blood tests in case I have any thyroid or iron problems because of my stupid heavy & painful periods.
I have some low dosage anti-depressants as well as 3 more months worth of the pill. She asked if I wanted to try a different type and part of me did as this last month has been so bad, but another part didn't as someone at work said I'd lost weight and I have had a hair problem (
) which has actually got better so I said I'll try for a bit longer.
I felt really good when I left the surgery when I actually shouldn't because this is pre period week so normally I'd be crying in bed. I even tried to make bread
and failed quite a lot but who cares, I tried and it smells nice. It has a soggy bottom
I am trying not to think about worst case scenario of this not working. I think I'd end up self hysterectomy-ing.
