Howdy. My post is quite late, I know. I’ve been trying all week to get my supposed Psychiatrist (whom I have yet to even meet) to fill my prescriptions. Finally today right before the pharmacy closed, I was able to get them to call them in. It should not take almost two weeks to get this done. And now Monday I have to start intensive outpatient treatment for substance abuse, I have no clue what this entails because no one will answer my questions. I’m just told “If you don’t do it then you don’t see the doctor or get your meds, so it doesn’t matter what it entails.” Hell I haven’t even met my doctor yet!!!! Yup, this is the public mental health help that is available in my state. Quite honestly I’m almost to the point that I may just pay out-of-pocket to see a doctor and get actual help. I’m sick of being talked down to and feeling degraded just because I have a mental health issue and am alcoholic. It took a lot for me not to scream into the phone “FUCK YOU!” at the woman today, it took a whole damn lot.
I’m the most frustrated I’ve ever been.
