I just called and made the appointment. They said my doctor will see me Monday morning. I hope I don't wind up regretting this. I just have such a creepy feeling. The healthcare system I'm in has given me excellent follow-up for physical medical issues. In 2022, I had some pretty big issues - like bleeding ulcers. Those have been dealt with very well. But, when it comes to psych treatment, I have no confidence in this place. This place will not charge me for anything they do because I'm covered under a plan for low income patients.

I'd rather go elsewhere and see a private therapist, but I really can't afford many visits where I pay out of pocket. Plus, it just seems like I can't find a private practicing therapist to go to. Medicare part B does pay 80% for psych care. A lot of them don't seem to take Medicare.

I called a crisis line yesterday and today when I got really distraught. They gave me phone numbers and a website. None of those proved fruitful. I got no responses.

I tell myself that I have to be my own advocate.
