Well believe it or not it actually happened finally, the appointment that is!!
All in all the doctor was nice, semi thorough so I am hoping things go well. She is a bit annoying, mainly her voice, but nothing to complain about really!! Jessi actually talked to her some answered questions once she was comfortable. She doesn’t like doctors and doesn’t like to talk to people she doesn’t know and really doesn’t want to admit the problems she has so there is always a bit of nudging to get her to speak.. lol Got the refill for her medication and of course it is more costly than with the last insurance it was 90.00 co pay for 90 days worth the pills. Could be worse.. :)
I was able to set an appointment for my oldest Samantha and she will go on Monday at 9am. Not looking forward to the cost on her medication as with the other company it was over 200.00 for 90 day supply, Yikes! Lets hope it isn’t much more than that.. I still don’t think this place is equipped to really give good psychiatric care but we will do what we can to get what the kids need. It was interesting as I told her how Jessi has been lately and how up and down she has been and she says ok I will see you back in three months.. I thought Really?! But what can you expect.. NO real attempt to see her a few times to see how she is really doing just refill the meds and send her on her way. LOL
I must sound hard to please, well I am, where the kids are concerned. Oh, we are also going to see about signing up for a class that will teach her some coping skills for her anxiety.. She has had some pretty good panic attacks over the last few months so I think that might be helpful. I have heard they have decent therapy and classes that can help with certain things so we will check it out and see what it is all about.
I am thankful they finally contacted me and we were able to see a doctor and not go through all the red tape of therapy and evaluations etc.. I want the evaluations but would prefer it be by the doctor that will be treating her. I don’t believe a report in writing is going to tell the doctor much, she needs to evaluate them herself.
Very sorry I didn’t get this done sooner, I spent the day starting to set up a blog at a different place to switch to but there are issues there. Just so you all know I will be moving the blog as I want more functionality so watch for that to happen.. Coming Soon a new look but same address!
