On November 2, 2018 I got in the car and was driven to Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital. I got there and was expecting to wait for hours and then maybe get to see someone. The first thing I noticed was how small the hospital was. When we got to the ER, it had the feel of a welcoming hearth instead of a hospital. We immediately saw the triage nurse who told me that the crisis team had gone home for the day. Within 15 minutes I was able to see a doctor. He helped me get a new medication dosage. I went back to Barrie and for the last few days I have felt much better. I have been sleeping the right length. I feel better.
I am still very much looking forward to apologizing to my psychiatrist in person for not being able to make the appointments in October.
