Here's a lesson in NOT expecting the worse.
I have been facing a lot of changes. One was that my former psychiatrist has retired. They were generous to give me an appointment with the new incoming doctor fairly quickly.
I have been worried that the new doctor would be cold and
short with me. I really dreaded that I would have to explain
everything to him/her and that I would have to re-establish
myself in some level of "recovery."
It was a big worry for me
that he would have that "doctor tone" with me.
SURPRISE>>> His concern was overwhelming.
I told him just a few things and he asked me if I had a DOG.
He said a dog is a great companion.
That's all I needed to hear. We will do fine together.
