Response to politicat (Reply #28)

32. Thanks for all of the suggestions.

I mean, I wouldn't report the therapist. She tried. She just really didn't seem to get it and wanted to move onto talking about other things because she wasn't really sure what else to say. It could have been my fault. I probably wasn't expressing myself properly, but it just rubbed me the wrong way that I walked in and said I specifically was a mess because of the election, and she rushed to talk about unrelated topics she thought were more important.

For future reference for other posters, I'm not going to any doctors to start the medication experimentation game. I have a very complex history with medical problems that medications never seem to help and usually just make worse, and it's all very expensive very quickly. The last time I got on an antidepressant, it gave me migraines so intense I wanted to die and I almost got in car wrecks because I was so spaced out. My migraine medication, which rarely works anyway, isn't covered under my new insurance. My medical costs got much more expensive this year with my new ACA plan, which I'm still grateful to have, but I need to preserve my covered visits for other things, as I only get a few visits now before I start having to pay a percentage coinsurance instead of just a copay. I just find it really frustrating when people tell me to do something I can't afford and that has proven only to exacerbate my problems in the past.
