Mood journals
« on: January 09, 2012, 12:09:32 AM »
I have been having trouble getting psych to listen about my extreme moods so have been writing a lot of it down during/after the mood swings.  Will the psych read it if I give it to him?  They don't seem to have much time so dunno if they will get annoyed.  I am seeing my old therapist for another assessment friday.  Do I show her too??

He *should* read it if he's any kind of a psych! And he shouldn't get annoyed. But if you are having trouble getting him to listen I would show your old therapist too just so that it's out there and someone else has seen/can give a second opinion. Very sensible of you to be keeping a diary! What's your old therapist like? Likely to listen? Good luck x

i would diffianlty show both of them as you've taken the time to do it and off your own back. well done for doing it though.
Don't feel sorry for me. my life is my own personal hell but I'll see the exit to it soon.

Therapist is really nice but I can't have long term support from therapy service as its time scheduled x
