So yesterday I started seeing my psychologist (I didn’t write yesterday because I’m suffering from a nasty sinus cold and pretty much crashed when I got home). He listened to me, asked a lot of questions and gave me some exercises and homework to do.
We talked about treatment options and agreed that the best bet for me to feel better sooner was a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and medication.
This morning I saw my new primary care physician and discussed what my psychologist and I had talked about last night. He agreed and after more questions and discussing a couple different options with me we decided that we’d try Prozac.
It will take 3-6 weeks before I’ll really start to notice if there is an improvement, but I’m optimistic. In the mean time I have another appointment with my psychologist next week and I’m looking forward to that.
