Hope


I saw my doctor today and she insisted that I see a therapist that specializes in PTSD who also has a background with Eating Disorders. I can't get in to see her until August 7th, but I think this might really help.(I'm on her cancellation list for a sooner appointment) I have to see the doctor again in two week. She has added Xanax routinely every day and a BP medicine at night,which is to help with the nightmares. My doctor also told me to call her if I needed to be seen sooner and she would work me in. All in all I feel I have a safety net now,

Just found your blog. Sorry you are having such a difficult time - my heart goes out to you. Hope the new therapist is really beneficial and that you are able to get in before the 7th.

who did she refer you to?
she is insisting i go back to a therapist.

i gave her my reasons for not wanting to see someone.

i can't stand her ..you know that/

when i told her i was going back to school, she said "oh, are you going to get your associates degree?"

what kind of condescending remark is that?

She is supposed to be sending me a referral to someone for therapy. I asked her if she understood what was done to me. She said "nothing was done "TO" you. Things happen in the adult world and we have to deal with it. that's what being an adult is"

oh yeah ..ok ..sure ...

she asked me what i was doing with my 'spare time'( you know, since i'm disabled, i don't do anything but sleep all the time in her mind) i told her i was still writing. She reminded me to not let the grandiose ideas get away with me.

She and i reallllllly really have not clicked.

Good luck at finding out what is right for YOU.
