In our last blog, we shared the story of Henry, who experienced a decline in his mental health functioning after being diagnosed with a chronic health condition. His doctor was puzzled why Henry wasn’t responding better to treatment, and suggested that mental health might be at play. You can catch up on Henry’s story here. Otherwise, read on to learn what happened after Henry agreed to see a psychologist.
“Turns out it wasn’t so bad.”
My first appointment with the clinical psychologist, I was nervous. I barely slept the night before. The day of the appointment, I remember sitting in the waiting room — picking up a magazine, not being able to concentrate, putting it down. Then, two minutes later, picking it up again. If it weren’t for Megan, I probably would have left. But I promised her I would go.
