My previous pdoc was in a practice of five pdocs.For various reasons, they all left the practice at the same time and closed their door on October 31. That left only two pdocs in my county of 330,000 people. That also left me with no pdoc in my insurance network. The only pdoc in my network in the next county sees children and adolscents. I now have a female pdoc, which i\'ve always wanted, but she is not in my network. I have to pay my $300 deductible and then 40% of what she charges per visit. If she were in my network, I would not have the deductible, and I would pay $25 per visit, no matter what the actually charge is. My first visit yesterday took an hour and cost me $217. She seems pretty good. I think I\'ll be able to build a rapport with her. She wants me to have psychotherapy, which I should have been having all along. I don\'t know why my last pdoc never made that an issue. Oh well, I\'m looking at this as a new beginning with a chance to improve things.

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
