Ok…so I contacted my last option therapist this morning. He got back to me within just a couple of hours…on a Sunday?! Anyway…he apparently has 30+ years treating and helping borderline patients, takes my insurance, is very local, and also has evening appointments…while this is all great news, I find myself very scared. I mean, what if I don’t like him? What if he’s not good? What if…something else happens and it just doesn’t work out? What if…I don’t know. There are so many what ifs that could make this all go wrong and not be as good as it sounds like it could or may be.
He doesn’t prescribe meds but he said many of his patients are already on them so he is experienced and willing/able to work with the family doctor as far as discussing effectiveness of medications so they can actually write the script. That’s good, right? Right? Right?
And now comes the even scarier part! The phone call. Ugh. “You can contact me at xxx-xxxx”. Those words just suffocate me. I don’t want to call on a Sunday. I will call tomorrow. Right? I think that makes sense.
