Pastoram, I am glad you found a new therapist. I would ask the new one what the rules are for contacting the old therapist since you feel you need to say something. I would take the new therapist's advice on this, hope it works out for the best. You mentioned you have had a 2nd outbreak of shingles. Did you know there is a vaccine to prevent shingles - it isn't 100% for sure you can't get it but if you get the vaccine and get shingles it will be very mild. Most people who get the vaccine don't get it. Many clinics and many drugstores offer this vaccine. As far as I know most insurance plans do not cover the cost and it is expensive - about $220 but it is worth it not to have to suffer the pain associated with an outbreak. My dr. told me I really should get this vaccine so I am going to do it because my Mom had shingles and she was miserable for about 6 months. I wish you the best and hope everything works out for you.
