.....yeah, I am in somewhat more of a stable state now.
Tomorrow, I will see a psychiatrist to get an adjustment in my medications. I have not seen a psychiatrist since December, when my old doctor's office got shut down due to it losing all of the state's funding that supported it. Apparently, mental health services are an easy target when it comes to politicians who want to cut state spending, but that's a topic for another blog.
I spent most of today at the local ER. Some friends suggested I went there, for the way I talked was scaring them more than it was scaring myself. I really did not want to die - but seriously, living the way I have been is no longer an option for me.
While I was at the ER, they also discovered I had a serious case of hypertension. Geez, I'm not surprised, but could they have picked a less stressful time for me to discover that?
Yeah, I am sorry if I worried anybody here. I am in so much pain...... but there are better ways to deal with it than to run away into oblivion, although those take some effort and they can be pretty painful in their own right. Heh.
I apologize to all of you for the blog I posted yesterday.
