This coming Thursday I will be having my last appointment with my therapist. This is not by choice - I would never leave her voluntarily. Because of cutbacks and a new department head at Community Mental Health they are eliminating individual therapy in favor of group therapy. They are saying that individual therapy is not effective - I don't know where these people came from but I can't imagine discussing the topics I talk about with my therapist in a group setting. Plus with agoraphobia I can't attend groups. This leaves me with 2 options - to either go without therapy or to start over somewhere else and to try and build that trust back up again with someone new. Being on disability and with Medicaid/Medicare for insurance the places I can go for help are extremely limited - most places have outrageous co-pays which I can't afford. I am back at DS after a long absence looking for support and offering my support to others.
