I moved from West Texas to East Texas. That was a long, hard move and I didn't notify my drs that Iwas moving. (BiPolar Disorder...need I say more?) I ended up going through all kinds of things before I found doctors to help me with the isssues of my meds and such. It took a while and I felt rotten for a while. Then it all worked out. I decided to move back to the place of my childhood, Nashville, Tn. BEFORE I left, I had my pychiatrist, my pain doctor and all the others find a counterpoint here in Nashville. For the most part, the docs from Texas sent me to the best of docs here in TN. I will always be grateful for my doctors involvement and the fact that he gave me an extra two months worth of the meds in order for me not to run out. It was all just great, but I have heard horror stories. Please contact your doctors before you move and see if they will contact someone in the new state, just for you. Take care and good luck.
I'm called Cat, but as there are few other Cat's on here, I put the number of cats I have and combined it to spell out Catz4
