well i went to see my psychiatrist for the first time and wow you werent kidding about the questions!!!!
but i think it went well. my medication dosages have been changed and added another type of medication as well.
she also told me to practice deep breathing 3 times a day, i have to use to hotlines such as suicide line and kids helpline and headspace etc that are avaliable to use. she wants me to go to my gp every week if if required see them twice a week. she would like me to continue to see my psychologist and continue to do the suicide prevention program as well.
she also wants me to do blood tests as well which im absolutly terrified of needles so im really dreading that and putting that off until absoloutly neccessary

You just beat me to it @setmefree
I'm glad to hear that it went well Have you had needles before? Are there strategies that you used then, or in other nervous situations, that have worked for you?
