I made an appointment today with a family doctor...the doctor who I was talking about...the one who sees my parents!  Well, he is O.K with me not having insurance, and will work with me.  I need to bring $50.00 to my first appointment, and then from there, we will work everything out!
I explained I am having issues with anxiety, and that I am having a hard time leaving the house, so waiting rooms are going to be tough for me.  The receptionsist was very understanding and helpful about it! 
My appointment is set up for Tuesday the 26th!  I could have got in sooner, but I have to wait til my boyfriends payday, which is Friday, and they had no Monday openings, so Tuesday is going to be my appointment.
So, I am feeling pretty happy, and actually scared out of my mind all at the same time.  I finally worked up the courage to call because I am having an extremely anxious day.  I have been on edge all day, it has been horrible.  Finally, I said, enough is enough, and I am not dealing with this anymore.  So, I called.
I was so nervous through the whole phone call.  (partially because I am on edge today as it is, and partially because my health anxiety is THAT BAD)  But, I made it through the phone call.  My boyfriend will go to the appointment with me, and we will get through it together.
I had to share this update with you all, as I am sure you all wanted to know!!!
Thanks for listening!!!
Tammy yeah     I hope I am doing that dance Tuesday after my appointment!!!  Ha ha ha

I remember being so scared too.  But like you said, there comes a time when you say to yourself enough is enough.  You get tired of feeling sick!
You will get thru it.  It is wonderful that your BF is such a help and very supportive!

Thanks Mary!!! I appriciate your words! I am sorry you felt scared too, but I am also relieved too. I am so nervous, but this is what I need, and what my son needs too. He needs his mommy back! Like I said...ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Tuesday I will do many dances...you will see. Think of me on Tuesday!

Thank you Mary...Thank you everyone!!!

You did a good thing and now stay in the moment and don't worry about what will happen on the day you have your appointment.

You will do great and you have your boyfriend there to support you.

I wish you sunshine and lollipops............Love ya

Kitt thanks so much! Your words mean the world to me too. I am most certainly going to go to that appointment, confident and ready to get help! I am scared, but living like this is scarier!!!

Love you you!
