Hello to all-Intro


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I just registered today. I used to read the old CrazyBoards posts all the time and found them and all the people awesome. I am currently not seeing a Pdoc, and no therapist. I had a bad "break-up" with my last therapist(for lack of a better word) earlier this year. I have not found a better one and my HMO is not exactly helpful. I always wonder if I were to do something at work would the HMO get sued? OOoo I think of taking a whole bottle of xanax at my desk to see what would happen. ;) Anyhows, that's me and I hope everyone is hanging in there!! :)

Blackadder reference? It's late and stupidness had kicked in.

I'd advise against any at-your-desk freak outs, you might want to work in future. Leaving your last job on a stretcher is never a good look on your CV. I'm sorry things have been rough. Welcome.

Yeah, I love that show! The thing with my HMO, one pdoc has kind of a lock on the whole area as his "Medical Corporation" has almost 80% of all therapists in his practice within 15 miles of my home. I hate it. The one I left earlier this year told me-get this-"I don't need your money, you do nto have to pay your co-payment until you feel you are making progress". THEN turned me over to a overdue bills collections agency to collect the fees. ;) The ex-pdoc told me that "It's just you-you have a personality disorder no medication could ever really fix." Double :) .

Firing doctors is fun, but here it's illegal to "doctor shop" so one must be really careful to not be labeled as such. I am now needing a new shrink, but am sick of all the BS that goes along with them. Plus, it takes forever to get an appointment. Actually, my last doctor fired me for missing two appointments in six months. The first was due to an wreck blocking traffic and I freaking called them and said I would be late. They said to reschedule but since I didn't do it RIGHT then, they counted me as a no show and charged me a fortune for the visit (insurance won't pay) AND labeled me as a no show. I fought it and lost. Hell, I couldn't reschedule right then because I didn't have my day planner and I was on a cell phone on the damned expressway....can you say dangerous? Hello!! People were all over the place because of the wreck and the torrential downpour. No way was I gonna risk my neck finding a pen and paper. The second one was due to a narcolepsy incident. I simply fell asleep and missed it, and I take full responsibility for that one, but the first one was pure BS. It's not my fault the expressway was shut down and I was not near an exit to take another route. They were so nice on the phone and then blasted me at my next visit. Now I need a new shrink.

Self-medicating is not really cool, but if you are desperate to feel better, then there should be a way to see a damned doctor sooner rather than later. I'm not suicidal, so a stint in the "brig" isn't an option. Luckily, I see my sleep specialist today, so there is some hope.

By the way, how the hell do I get my picture thingy to show up? I added one to my profile and it shows when I look at my page, but it's not showing up with my posts? Total newbie to this site and it's not working like it does on some other sites I use. grrrr

Edit: Nevermind. I figured it out. My provigil is working today and my brain is awake. Go figure how easy it was to get the pic up. Duh....
