As I posted before I've suffered with bipolar for 5 years. The doctor that was treating me said he tried his bag of tricks on me & gave up. So I obvioustly stopped going to him. Since then I've been searching for a Doctor. I'm still not stable , and I don't wan't to go into depression again. Therefore as not to have a repeat of last time Iam looking for a top doctor, so he won't say he tried his bag of tricks on me & give up. I recently wen't to a consult by a top doctor and he suggested a medicine. There are 2 problems 1 he only does consults &2 it's 400 dollars an hour. So i'm looking for a top regular doctor but they charge like 700 dolars the first time or even 500 dollars the first time & after that 350-400.My parents don't have the money to send me to top stuff and Iwon't settle for mediocre. My grandmother also doesn't have the money. I haven't been to adoctor in a while and I really need to see one. I need a top caring physician. . I know from experience that usually top doctors charge alot and that's the way it should be .I don't wan't to make the same mistake I made last time. It's been a heck of a five years and I just wan't to know I'm in the middle and not be susceptable to severe depression or highs. So where should i get the money from, I don't wan't to settle, I need a top doctor & the last thing I wan't is to go into depression again cause it's gehinom. I have names of top doctors , of very good doctors the problem is they charge too much.


What should I do?

Borrow if u have to. Go into debt. Do whatever it takes to get the best doctor. Your life is worth the debt. Without it, u will be dysfunctional.

I'm on SSI (Social Security Insurance). Have you tried that, or other government help?

Hi
I wish u best of health.
The best way to get money is to work.Even a low paying job is better than none.Besides it helps your self esteem and fills up your day and brings some sort of stability.
I completely agree with SOOME that u or your parents should get into debt but stay healthy then u could repay it.It is crucial to see a competent Doctor.But pricier is not always better.

The problem with work and bipolar, I've found out the hard way, is reliability. You can't tell your employer that you'll be able to work at a set time, because one day you'll suddenly go 'down' and you can't show up at work. Or if you do show up, you aren't really able to work. At least that's what I've found out.
All the best,
Yehoshua

Obviously if one can't work he can't work.But living on SSI today is not an option iether. Cost of living keeps on going up.If lets say u get $800 per month from SSI,etc. and a good avr. shrink charges $200-300 per visit u see the odds against u.
Also Liar is a young guy and needs some sort of a job. Also one need to think off providing for the(future) family. It may be hard but every one can do some simple job, like working in deliveries,packaging, making pizza, barber, etc.
If u are a barber u can make your own hours.
I hope this helps.
