Going without psychotherapy
I had a therapist who was of no help. With COVID-19 the office where she does counseling is closed to the public. I cannot get another counselor there to replace her. All therapy sessions are by phone. During a time when I was having phone problems she called for a therapy session and my phone wasn't working , it did not ring when she called. She charged me a no show fee. Because of this, her being of no help and giving me no support I stopped seeing her about two months ago. My doctor has referred me to a therapist who has never contacted me and I am waiting to have a center call me when it has an opening to see a therapist. My selection of therapists is limited because I am in an HMO. Going without psychotherapy when you have depression can really make a difference. I have not shared any of the feelings of the worsening of my depression with my doctor or let her know I stopped seeing my therapist so long ago. I have extra 60 days of Cymbalta and so I self medicate myself and increase the amount of medicine until I find a therapist. Are there others who notice a big difference when they go without psychotherapy when they have received it on a regular basis?
