4. Won't matter
I already had it right out with this woman on the phone and now I'll only ever be seen as adversarial there. I asked her what authority does the social worker and her, whose sole purpose is to get people into these treatment programs on a quota basis, have to diagnose me as an addict when I told her my usage was occasional and actually helped many other symptons I have. She gave me this BS about how no doctor is going to prescribe me psychotropic meds if they know I'm on pot. I said, "Oh, really?" because my regular doctor has me on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds and he knows I smoke. Problem is he's going to cut off my anti-D's if I'm not with a psychologist soon. I fucking give up. Time to become an alcoholic again I guess.
