>How do I explain things without spending too much time on the details so there is no time to work out ideas to help.
I've always regarded you as an organized and resourceful person and think those talents can help now.
You have a whole load of life bearing down on you at the moment. For someone who was physically and mentally in the pink it would be hard - just the mold problem alone is serious. So with a resurgence of symptoms, a husband in hospital, family demands and everything else I'd agree it is hard to know what to head for first.
May I suggest you spend the days before you see your psych in two stages. The first being just to jot down in any brief and messy form you like each problem as it occurs - maybe 15 seconds each time, maybe less.
The second stage of course is to reduce these to point form, grouped together as best you can, if you are feeling very organized give each point a numeric value of how much hassle it is.
Whatever way you go share the paper (and if you can book and extra bit of time do so). Share and sit back while the psyche reads ALL and digests, then you have a basis for a talk. Maybe kick off with a discussion of priorities of waht to look at first.
With so much it is easy for the psych to be overwhelmed and lost over everything and thus concentrate on just the one thing - easier and simpler. Not what you need though. You have a complex situation and need a comprehensive set of answers. Consider emailing the list with a cover note a day or more before.
There are times you have to steer things, as you are the 'expert' on the spot, the one with the knowledge and realization of results and implications.
It would be a bit hopeful to expect everything to be addressed, however some of the more important things might be, and it can be an ongoing tool for future consultations.
I know, an extra burden on you when you don't need any more, maybe you can get some help wiht other's suggestions for that list. So what do you think?
