I feel relieved. I had the intake appointment and will be seeing a therapist once a week for awhile starting next Tuesday and the pdoc in 2 weeks for eval. They said they'd work with me based on my income, which is very low. Maybe I won't have to pay much, if anything. They said that there's programs for meds, should I need them, where I wouldn't have to pay for scripts. I'm hoping I qualify. Won't know much til I see the doc, but it's a start.

That\'s good to hear! Glad u got help. Where did u go? U don\'t have to tell me if u don\'t want to! I gave a friend the number to Turning Point, where I go so I hope she gets an intake appointment soon and is able to get a counselor and attend weekly group! I\'ve been worried about her, as she\'s been hospitalized twice since winter. I really hope they help her and that I see her in group Wed.! Well, take care and have a good night. -Heather-

I went to Harbor Oaks outpatient. My therapist seems nice. I\'m glad I got a female therapist. I don\'t know why, but I can open up more to women than to men. I\'m sure they\'d say it\'s because of how my father was, and is. I did have one male therapist that I felt comfortable with. He is actually advertised on this site, much to my surprise.
