January 28 - I Made a Tough Decision

Monday, January 28, 2019

I was diagnosed in 2015 with major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and PTSD. I called 911 on myself August 8, 2015. The sherriffs office took me to the hospital. They diagnosed & medicated me for the depression. However, the ball was dropped when it came to diagnosing & medicating for my anxiety. 10 days in patient and then 4 weeks of PHP (partial hospitalization program). Essentially therapy from 9am - 1pm, Monday - Friday.

Today I decided it was time to get help again. The meds I had been on for years, werent working. So I started researching hospitals that took my insurance. I decided on one that was a distance away. I have 2 locally but the 1 I had gone to was a very bad experience. The stories I had heard about the other, weren't any better.

So tomorrow Im making the call to schedule an assessment appointment. Then I will go from there on whatever the next step is.
