New psychiatrist

So today I went to see my new psychiatrist following my crisis back in Feb.
I anticipated perhaps a 45min slot however 2 exhausting hrs later I scurry out....full on headache and swollen eyes to a parking ticket.
That was essentially my day in a sodding nutshell.
My psychiatrist has requested I stop Promethazine and end my Martizipine (have come down off it the past two weeks) and increase my Quetiapine.

So I will now attempt to follow this and survive the next three weeks until I see him again.

I am absolutely bloody petrified. And don't forget the stinkin parking ticket.

Wow, that’s sounds grueling. I’m lucky if my psychiatrist spends 20 minutes with me.
But hopefully it will be helpful, in the end.

Grueling and unexpected but very welcomed.
Took way too much quetiapine yesterday but dont feel on verge of freefall just yet.
