yeah  Well, it wasn't bad, not at all.  It took just over an hour, and the lady I met with, Tara, was amazing.  She was very nice.  WE just talked about all the issues I am having, and she made me feel very comfortable, and safe, even.  So, I meet with my new PDOC on November 1st at 2 pm.  Her name is Robyn.  I look forward to meeting with her.
 
Tara...the lady I met with today, informed me of all the assistance this place is able to give me, being that I am still uninsured...ugh.  There is a program to help me pay for my meds, since they are pretty expensive...thanks to the Lexapro.  And, for the first time in a while, I am feeling totally confident that I am on the road to real help!
 
So, I wanted to check in and let you know all is well for today, and that I am looking forward to meeting with my new PDOC on November 1st.  Hopefully I will get some issues fixed then!!!
 
Thanks all for listening, and thanks for the support. 
 
Oh, the intake specialist asked me if I talk to anyona about my issues...I told her I talk to John, and my healingwell family!!!!

New found issues with agoraphobia...working on that too.
 
I am NOT weak, I am just down right now.  I am doing what it takes to get my life back!!!
 
Best Wishes to all...Tammy

Thanks for posting and sharing
'So glad you hit it off with Tara right away and really glad you may be able to get some finacial or other help for meds

One less thing to stress about EH ..........
Let us know how the PDOC goes and make sure you write down ALL you need / have to talk about ....it helps IMHO

Glad you also mentioned HW

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU...ALL!

The only thing that stinks though is I am still cranky. I am feeling mad at John about something from Sunday afternoon, and I am still mad at him for it. I haven't spoke to him much since then. Grrr. I can't stop being mad at him either. I have no control over what I am feeling and how I am acting. I am feeling confused right now. I don't know why I am feeling like this, or acting like this...

Anyway, other than that, I am feeling great about life for the first time in a LONG time.

Thanks everyone!!!
