It is almost incomprehensible what you have been through with the County system. It is bad enough to feel as you do, but to have to bang your head against a wall trying to get "help". After all this, I wonder if it really is help...

Sorry, I can't help on meds. If you were able to get to a private pdoc for meds, as suggested, then what? S/he could prescribe for several months, then what? I don't think any competent pdoc would just see you once every six months to renew meds - if they happen to work. I hope you find a private or public pdoc who can help you.

I mostly agree with Janet, about doing what you need to in order to get help. But I don't agree with selling the horse. Horses have obviously meant a lot to you. Possibly you could find someone to underwrite the cost for awhile, or find another way to board it? I know you have had a couple of questions about your animals. I know how important my cat is to me. He's not just an animal, he's not just a pet, he's like family. And I could never give him away just so I wouldn't have to buy cat food. One of the reasons I wouldn't want to die is because I would be afraid of what would happen to him and how traumatized he would be. I know non-animal lovers can't sympathize, but I just wanted to support your keeping your animals because I know how much they can mean. I think if I were depressed and lost my cat, it would make it easier for me to consider suicide. Fur-children are important!

I hope you get out of this nightmare. Have you put anything in writing? If you want to document any case, you should leave a paper trail. Like letters saying how suicidal you are and how you're NOT stable and need immediate care, starting with a change in pdoc. If you keep telling them on paper how suicidal you are, they should start getting a little nervous...

Good luck to you, Racer.
