I am so happy to hear things are working out with your psychologist. You are right, it has to make you feel better just to be able to sit down and talk to an unbiased person and get out some of this frustration you have gone thru with the WC people. That added stress alone is enough to put anyone over the moon. I had an awesome psychologist that I saw. If my ins would pay for it now, don't think for a moment I would not be in her office. She helped me so much. Unfortunately, when my husband retired our ins changed over to a retiree's plan and I guess they figured we didn't need that coverage any longer, along with vision and dental. I guess when people retire from that company they figure you don't need someone to talk to, or need to see or have any teeth in your mouth lol.
Thats awesome about the WI. My daughter has one of those and my grandson plays on it every time they go over there. He plays golf and some other game on it. I did not know they had an exercise program too, wow.
May I ask how your psychologist is reacting to the crap about the addiction situation that obviously has not been in the picture since Hitler was a road guard. You are what pain drs call the perfect pain patient because you do as directed by your dr end of story. If you don't want to answer the question no problem. I just hope this guy see's it as we do, that was a long, long time ago end of story.
Take care and please don't be a stranger. Hey, are you painting any? How do you like Kansas? My Mom lived in Garden City you know and loved it there. I lived in a crack in the road called Satanna back in the early 70's. Its plenty hot in Texas triple digits.
