I'm am so estacic that your son's therapist has offered to take your case on separetly! You so deserve it!!! You don't know how wonderful this makes me feel. Well, how silly of me, of coarse you do because YOU for YOURSELF are also feeling so relieved about it!!!! (((Big Hug)))
I too couldn't understand your other therapist's decision, and I can totally understand how you felt abandoned.
I will be switching Insurance Co due to my hubby's new job and was recently informed that my mental health coverage may no longer be covered by the doctor's & facilities that I currently use. I told my therapist, if that were to happen I could never see anyone else! So I totally understand your abandonment issue. For all the years that I have seen her, I would have felt that a part of me had been removed from my life! I told her I would never see anyone else. (Although she did inform me that I would have to because I have a serious mental illness), but I was NOT accepting that at this time.
It is very nice of you to throw her a going away party with all of her friends. I'm sure this is very difficult for her as well and it speaks to her I'm sure in more ways that you could realize.
I hope things will work out better for you financially wise. OMG!...that is a lot of out of pocket expense!
I'm so glad that you touched based with us! You don't know how much your reply post has relieved me, knowing that FINALLY you have someone there for YOURSELF! We are here too! But this YOU needed and is LONG OVERDUE!
You will continue to be on my heart!
I read your post about your nanny leaving a bit ago, so I'm glad to hear an update. Sukay is wonderful to always be thinking of everyone . Anyway, I wanted to reply to your post that day--but I ended up doing things around the house, and then school has been nuts! UGH!
I am sorry that your nanny is leaving. That is sad. But I think that you are handling the situation very well. I am glad you posted and reached out to HW when you learned of her departure. We are all here for you. I'm glad your counselling has been sorted out. I also think your plan for telling your children is great.
I cannot imagine the amount of money you spent last year on medical. I count my blessings all the time for living where I do.
You are in my thoughts LFW, and I hope that your stresses ease up ASAP. Try to really enjoy yourself with the party. I know it will be sad to say goodbye, but from what I know of you--it will be a great party (food etc...)!
