Today I’m seeing my psych and having a tooth filled. I can’t write about trauma every day of my life, lol. My relationship with my doctors are generally good, they appreciate my honesty and cooperation, and I appreciate their knowledge and lack of judgement.

Also their patience with the list of things wrong with me, as a former red flagged drug addict with mental health issues, I admit to a certain anxiety when meeting a new physician. When I’m nervous, I babble, so generally one of the first five things I say is “I’m in recovery! AHHHHH!” to a doctor, even if he/she’s a gynocologist and it probably isn’t relevent.

I remember when I broke my leg the e.r. doc told me he normally wouldn’t give me anything, and I told him I normally wouldn’t ask for anything, but my leg was all bendy and asked if a medical coma was an option.

Bless you, fentanyl and morphine.
