As you all know by now, I deal with chronic and moderate-to-severe anxiety and depression on a daily basis, so I see a therapist and a psychiatrist to help manage those illnesses.
Today, instead of doing a telehealth appointment with my therapist, I have to head to the office in Novi, about a 20-minute drive from my home here in South Lyon, to do a once-in-every-six-months face-to-face appointment with my therapist (masked up, of course).
The bad news is that my therapy appointment is for 1 PM today, so I will probably miss a good chunk of the Red Wings’ practice (usually scheduled for 12 or 1 PM prior to a road trip) as I’ll be leaving around 12:30 PM, and I’ll have to catch up when I get home around 2:30 PM.
I hope this is okay. Some days you have to prioritize your mental health, and today is that day for me.
