I admire you for getting your employer to buy a plan with good mental health benefits. I'm always afraid to have anyone at work know that I use mental health benefits at all. I'm afraid all my therapy billing will drive up their group rates and they'll trace it back to me personally.

My other quandary is, I don't fully accept that my therapy is medical treatment. I like to think of it as personal growth. So I feel a bit guilty about billing it all to insurance, even though I have the dx, and the parity laws, and the insurance coverage. I guess I just don't like thinking of myself as needing mental health care. Too hard on the ego.
