  I know I need to go to the dr.  I finally got up the strength to do it yesterday.  I do not currently have one, so I did a lot of research and found one who is also a counselor, I called but they have to check and see if she will take any new patients and call me back. Which they have not done, I would hate to call back and bother them.  I called another dr. and can not be seen until the end of September. I have a hard enough time just going to see a doctor for anything.   I know I should right down what i want to say, but have no clue what that is.    
   I have never been to counseling, and the thought of talking to someone in person terifies me.  My OB put me on Zoloft when I was preg and I had lost my sister.  I have only refilled the percription 1 time, I am horrible about taking meds plus I cannot be so oblivious like it made me feel.

Keep following up. I am currently waiting to see one, too. A couple have been too booked up or are not taking new patients. Don't give up! Ask for recommendations from them if they can't see you.

Thanks I finally hear back that the Doctor/Counselor would take me on which is a huge relief.  I just have to call back Monday and see when she can get me in.  It still looks like at least the end of September.

I am sorry that you have to wait so long for an appointment, but at least this is a start.

Good luck,

hugs, Karen

I am so glad you found a counselor that will take you as a new patient.  Remember to stay in the moment and when the time comes just go to the appointment and the therapist will lead you to get started.  You will do well, and I will be sending you good vibes.

Good Luck
