That's a lot.
Of all of these, which one(s) can you affect? One of my mantras is that when I start to get anxious, I ask whether my actions can affect or change the outcome. When the outcome will be the same, I refuse to put my energy into worrying, and instead put it into resolving. If I can affect the outcome,then it deserves my energy.
We feel powerless. When things begin to happen which we cannot control, it makes us grasp onto other events or outcomes. So, when it doesn't turn out as we want, it raises the stress and perpetuates that frustration.
You can do nothing about the ex being deployed. You can hold her in your thoughts with love. You can do little to nothing about the health condition, right?
What you can do is try to minimize the disruption that a new therapist will bring. Call your therapist's office and get recommendations NOW. Request copies of records NOW. And, yes, it is hard, and really scary. But the insurance and/or the medical company made this decision which has nothing to do with you. It's impersonal. So minimize the damage as much as you can. You can also call the insurance carrier and register your objection, which is a small victory.
I have had to change therapists several times between moving and insurance changes. The one I liked best was not on my new insurance plan, and so I had to switch.I left one behind when I moved out of Virginia. And my terrific and much-loved PCP who handles all my pain med is moving her office down to a larger facility outside DC. I got the letter last week. I am debating driving the extra fifteen miles when I need to see her, or taking a chance that the new physician replacing her will honor the pain contract.
Hugs, kid. In moments of stress, use coping techniques to make it through.
