I asked my psychiatrist if she was OK

#1

I saw her today when I went to get my physical and blood test done for prolactin. She looked very tired and worn out. Also pale. I asked if she was OK and she smiled and said yes are you OK

I once had a psychiatrist who said “can’t you see that I can’t cope anymore”

That took a lot of guts @Qwerty.

That was very caring of you. If you don’t mind me asking, why’d you have to get your prolactin tested? Do you have high prolactin due to the meds?

Yes they think I have high prolactin. I have all the symptoms. I’m on paliperidone

That sounds like a good exchange. Hopefully they can tweak your meds without causing adverse effects. Let us know how you are in a few.

I have high prolactin on paliperidone as well. We’re going to try to lower my medication at my next psychiatrist appointment.

I don’t know what we will do yet. I’m thinking of going on abilify if it’s sky high. Which i think it is…I hope your dose change goes well.

Wow - That was nice of you. Im sure if i asked my shrink if he was ok, he would scream “boundarys” at me! Very sweet of you tho.

I never have to ask, I always assume none of my psychiatrists are doing OK.

My psychologist is also absent but not absent minded. She just have to take a few days off because she is in labor.
