I'm scared

My psychiatrist scared** me by ringing at 7pm this evening to see how things were, she said my CPN had emailed her. I know I'm not in a great place at the moment, but I think I'm managing it reasonably...but psych was talking about stepping things up early next week if I'm still not well. I don't think I'm in need of more drugs (she wants me to go back on a tryclic, which I will do as of tonight), and definitely not in need of admission...which are the only two kinds of 'stepping up' I can think of.

Am I misinterpreting things? Are they over estimating my risk?

**She's someone who tends to cultivate a healthy respect from her patients, and usually only rings if it's urgent.

Help, please reassure me, it's important that I don't disengage just now, as my CPN leaves next week and then I wont have anyone for a bit.

I'm trying to think of ways to stay safe/distract over the weekend. Hope others are doing ok.
