from the CAT guy. i was talking to him a little... and he gave me the name of a p-doc who does therapy and medication. he said that she is really good and sees people with DID. that she bulk bills too.

i phoned her up. she told me off lol. she said that i shouldn't ring people and say that i'd been given her number and does she bulk bill? sounds like there are shortages of therapists and doctors and psychiatrists here similarly to how there are shortages of dentists and gardeners and hairdressers and thus people can pick and choose. she said that if that is about the first question she is likely to say 'no sorry' and that is that. i explained a little more though... about how in the last year the policy changed on kiwis being eligable for aussie healthcare and about how because we aren't properly international we are kind of slip through the cracks... and she saw what i was saying and said 'yeah i do bulk bill for situations like that'. she is full up. i said i got referred by xxx because i told him i had a dx of DID. she said 'yeah, that is typically why he refers people onto me...' she gave me the name of another p-doc who does similar. works through the hospital, though, she said that could be better for me if i ever do need hospitalisation... i'm supposed to try phoning while he is on the ward on Monday. she said she did her training with him so he is used to treating this kind of stuff. i'm a little scared about getting my hopes up... but we shall see... be good to have a med review and get some more valium at any rate...
