Well here I go again....I can;t sleep.....I was sleeping ok with the help of ambien, but I had to go back to my old doctor due to no longer going to 3x's week therapy program, my doctor now does not beleive in ambien and will only prescribe 1/2 the amount per month.  So here I am up awake and everyone else is sleeping.......Well I guess I'll keep trying to fall asleep.
 
Goodnight everyone

Hi April,

Hope you got to sleep okay. That's terrible about the ambien. Is there something else that works that your new doc likes better?

I never slept that night and I stayed up all day yesterday. Last night though I slept for about 9 hours, I did not want to get up this morning but it is my younger daughter's 9th birthday!!
We will have to see about tonight though.......

Oh get this my current behavioral doctor wants me to go back and finish my intensive out patient program. I did not finish the program because I felt worse going to the group therapy and I told my doctor that and she did not care she said that that her practice could not give me the therapy that I needed which is at least 3x's a week. I haven't even seen a theraphist there to evalute me..... I have medicaid and there is only a few places I can go to.... Hopefully my reg. medical doctor can help me with the medication part, but I dont know about the therapy, I know I need to speak with someone but not 3x's a week. I'm going through a divorce right now.

Sorry for this thread I just needed to vent!!!!!



smilewinkgrin Have a good night everyone

sorry to hear about your troubles, April. Group therapy is definitely a mixed bag. Could you see a therapist once a week?

I can't find a therapist in my insurance plan that will see me weekly, that's why they wanted me to go to intestive therapy.
