I have my monthly meeting with my psychiatrist today. No need to change my prescriptions. I’m starting to feel okay which is a major accomplishment I’ve been working towards for years.
It’s my worst day of the month. The office staff are rushed and unpleasant. The large waiting room is crowded. A student calls me back and questions me from a tablet. Then I wait again for the psychiatrist. He sits with me for less than five minutes, just long enough to refill my prescriptions.
Medication and meditation only have one letter difference.
I attended calm, abiding meditation at the Dharma Center tonight. It was wonderful, welcoming, familiar, challenging and frustrating. I hope to go again.
