> You have a good point. I had to quit seeing the psychologist that I was seeing for individual therapy because I couldn't afford him once he made the decision to not accept insurance anymore. His rate was $125.00 per session

When I first started therapy with a psychologist back in 1970 in New York (I was 21 then), the fee was $25 per hour!!. I don't know how anyone can afford triple-digit charges these days, or even a so-called "reduced" rate. $125 sounds absolutely staggering to me. God knows how many millions of people are suffering because they can't afford counselling, not to mention the whole problem of finding the right meds for their depression.
> I'm so sorry if I offended you! The question marks were just an expression of my own uncertainty about what you meant in your last post. I didn't realize you made yearly trips out to see your mom anyways.

You didn't offend me. And I apologize if I got you rattled. My depression and/or personality just makes me so super-sensitive and that's part of my overall problem, if you know what I mean.
> I'm a mom of two little boys (5 and 7) and I understand the "hysterical" thing. I thought I was a worrier before, but nothing compares to the kind of worry I feel when I'm worrying about my kids. When they're in pain, I feel it too. I'm not sure that changes all that much just because the kids grow up.

So now I know a bit more about you. . .as for your saying, "I'm not sure that changes all that much just because the kids grow up," I'll just tell you that I just turned 54 and my Mom is 74 and the maternal worrying never stops. I guess it's the so-called maternal instinct. So much more could be said. We'll stay in touch.
