...days and counting. I didn't think it would be this hard to wait just 2 weeks. I never should have let it get this bad. I don't know how long it will take to make it right. I don't know if I want to go back or move forward. I know I was once happy but they say you "can't go home again". To move forward into the unknown does not mean happiness either. What the hell am I supposed to do then? I tried, I really did. Then why did I fail, time after time? Everyone says, it's all out there, just grab it. Who greased the pig so I couldn't hang on???

finally rings. I have an appointment for May 31st. Well that is better than August isn't it? I guess I just have to hold out for 2 weeks. I can do that standing on my head, or lying in bed which is what I have been doing for the last 2 weeks anyway. It takes a lot longer than that for any passive suicidalism to take effect so I hope y'all will stop worrying about me at least for now. I do appreciate my fam and friends who have shown concern even if I don't answer back when you post. I don't have internet everyday so I tend to procrastinate responses in favor of virtual farms that need my attention, so goes my disease.

Round 3. Called the last number back and was told that it usually takes 2-3 business days to get the call back I was waiting for. Seriously?!?! If I had a fever would it take 3 months to get an appointment? If I had a broken arm would I have to wait 3 days for the scheduler to call me back? Why is mental health taking such a back seat. I am still in sick, I am still hurting. I am not trying to get an appointment to get my teeth cleaned. I am trying not to die. Seriously

I went to the doctors nearly 2 weeks ago hoping to get some help for my depression. My PCP referred me to the pysch at the clinic, went to get an appointment and they said not until August. Really? So I called the insurance provider and asked for a list of docs I could call to get seen sooner. First number, machine. Really? Second number, not an outpatient clinic. Really? Third number, left message on machine, never called me back. Really? This makes me even more depressed and I quit trying. Got the book of providers in the mail so today I started making calls again. Called the third number again, left message, no call back. Really? Called another number that I found in the book, machine. Really? and again, same, and again, same, and again, same. Really? All these mental health professionals never answer the phone?? during regular business hours? Really? I finally get through on the fifth call to a real person who says she will have someone call me back. STILL WAITING!!

...since I posted anything. I have not been having such a great time lately. I finally got some medical coverage so I went to the doctor and got a referral for a mental health specialist. When I tried to make the appointment they said the next available slot was in August. If you are diagnosed with severe depression how can they say to you, wait for over three months to get some help. I already feel like no one gives a shit so I can include a whole new crop of people in that group. I know they don't understand what an effort it took for me to even pick up the phone to make the appointment, they don't know me. Everything takes effort. Going to the pantry, taking out the garbage, waking up, writing. I'm tired. I don't know how much I have left in me to try anymore.
