Made an appt.. (apd)

Monday 8pm. (I actually have someone coming over for dinner that night, but I got afraid that if I didn’t get it done as soon as possible, I wouldn’t do it at all, so I’m going to call Kelly H. and reschedule, I’m sure she will understand right?) And it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was. Though I did have a moment of panic when I couldn’t remember Brian’s social security number and I was running around freaking out in my head, but finally found it. The woman on the phone was so nice, I felt very comfortable talking to her. She called my insurance for me, and basically it stinks. We would have to meet a $600 before they would pay 60% for 10 visits. And since the year is almost up, they suggested just using their sliding fee. So it would be $65 a session. I have an appt. with:

  1. I’m so sorry that you’ve had to struggle for such a long time. I’m proud of you for deciding to go to a counselor. It’s not an easy thing to do but the important thing is that it will help and you have no reason to feel bad for going. I was reluctant to go to therapy for a while when I suffered from anxiety, but it really helped to talk to somebody and know that people are there for you. I hope that you get the help for need and I know that you will stay strong through out it :o)


  2. I’m so glad you made the appt. THat is always the hardest step. If you want to chat, please let me know. As you know I do see a therapist and suffer from anxiety and depression.

    big hugs!!
