My insurance changed. Therapist of 15 yrs who has made a lot of progress with me is not on new insurance so I have to either change therapists or get a single case agreement. As a result, I can't see her until the single caase agreement (hopefully it will work) pans out. I have worries it won't work. I'm starting to very slowly slide into depression and am in no- man's land with therapists. If I see an insurance doc it means I cant see mine ever again. . It also means I get stuck with a REALLY REALLY BIG BILL. I'm also really angry at the crowd here. I understand something may have transpired in another board but it doesn't mean that you guys have to cease giving support to others. I'm wanting to cut and looking forward to getting what I need on Friday. I just don't care anymore. Too many pressures Too many voices in my head....dca'n't explain that but no I'm not psychotic. I have way too much anxiety and anger at the moment.

I'm sorry Munster that you're going through so much now. I myself am having my life unraveled, I can't imagine losing my therapist. How long will you have to wait to hear if a single case management pans out? Maybe your therapist can give you a sliding scale? Right now is definitely not the right time to switch therapists or stop therapy at all. I wish I can help you. If I can let me know. Thanks... Good luck!!!!

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not".

Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm happy.

Hey Munkster hang in there I'm still here for you!
I know that with these insurance companies they make you jump through loops till they approve something..

Any chance the therapist would give a sliding scale fee till the insurance gets straightened out?

In the meantime we're here for you!!

And Toy so sorry to hear things aren't going that great :'(

No...she won't do a sliding scale fee. And her general fee is like 200 bucks a session!!! So even if she could, it probably wouldn't help. It's probably gonna be at least a month before I can see my therapist again from what I can tell. I'm sorry toy that you're having a rough time too. I'm just frustrated because I feel very alone right now.

I guess we can feel alone together cuz I sure feel alone. You know the expression "when it rains it pours"? Well that's what's been happening to me. I'm having legal, financial, emotional, and physical issues... Lovely, no? Sorry for the sarcasm.... I'm sad!!!!!

I'm sorry Munkster and Toy that I haven't been around giving much support lately. It sounds really hard for you right now!
If I had to leave my current therapist because of financial issues (which may just happen at any time) I would fall apart. Your reaction is so understandable. I wish I could do something...
And about the homeschooling, I have no suggestions - I am a single never married woman with no children... but I feel your pain and frustration about the whole situation.
I do think about you and the others here even when I'm not posting, and I care. Can you feel that?
((((((((HHUGS))))))))))

That's really hard, munkster! I can't even imagine being stuck in a limbo like that. I'm not sure what to say, but I definitely care and want to be there for you. Hang in there! And please do talk to us meanwhile.

Munkster, is there someone in your community you can ask about this? A Rav, or Askan?
A relative? Because you need your t now and don't give her up-health is worth more than money. Even if you have to let outsiders pay for it.

KC, I dunno. I don't feel significant enough to be worthy or having someone pay my therapist bills.

If it would be a physical illness, would you ask for help? I think yes.
Anyway, I believe that we are all here on this world to help each other-s'times we help, s'times others have to help us. It's all part of Hashem's plan.

So so sorry munkster - I don't know how I could handle the conflict - needing your long-term therapist and that well-known support , yet not being able to afford it....

Can totally relate to the voices in the head - it happens under extreme stress for me as well - not psychotic - but the defense mechanisms that we kick into by habit - actually a pretty amazing defense Hashem has given us, albeit not an easy one and unless you have it - not one that is easily explainable......

Sorry I haven't been here for support - haven't been able to - still do not have easy access to a computer - and I had to protect myself for awhile....

Thinking of you and praying for a good resolution to your problem.... (((hugs)))
