Racer- I thought of you yesterday with all your trials of trying to get good mental health care.
I'm having to find a new pdoc and have medicare and luckily (?) a separate HMO. Few pdocs in my area take medicare and the HMO said if I had medicare their shrinks couln't take me either. After a dozen long distance calls I finally got an appt. w/ the HMO. Yesterday I went to the HMO (head MD shrink name's "Dr.Brain" -were they kidding?) It was such an awful experience and they made me feel SO crazy that I could barely drive home. I can't even describe yesterday w/o feeling nauseaus. I can't fight for mental health care anymore - thank god I have a six month prescription - I'll figure it out then.
Why do some people assume you are crazy and have no rights just because you want to know the list of available MDs and what they specialize in.
I admired your persistance. Kate
ps--I also understood your need to keep your horse :-)
> My mother is paying my rent. That keeps a roof over my head, but it comes at a price. For me, the price is payable, since my mother and I get along well enough. Whether or not you can afford the interest on money from your mother, only you can answer. It's a really tough question.
> As for standing on your own two feet, that's another personal issue. It would be nice if all of us could be financially independant. After fighting to control depression for a long time, though, maybe it's a good time to learn to lean on others a little bit. Maybe now is not the time to say, "I can go it all alone." That's the nice thing about personal value systems. They're personal. You don't have to accept anyone else's.
> Good luck, and congratulations on finding a drug combo that works!
