    I decided to see a therapist since I currently have good insurance. I went through the entire intake including hours of paperwork and a very vulnerable session only to have the ”therapist” decline to keep seeing me because I have a history of depression and admitted to self-harming 10 years ago. WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. FUCK. It’s not like I need in-patient care and she couldn’t provide it. It’s not like I have a super rare condition. Who DOES she see?! That’ll teach me to talk about my history with a therapist ever again.

    Mood : Frustrated

    • I don’t understand why a therapist would not want to see a patient because their health history. I mean… They are supposed to help improve your mental health, aren’t they? I’m so sorry this happened to you, @blackdog. Don’t give up, if your insurance allows you to see a different therapist, go for it. There are a lot of them who truly want to help people and give proper care

    • Got an appointment for two weeks from now. Here’s hoping…

    • Thats really good news! I hope you got a great therapist. Crossed fingers! @blackdog
