i have major depression, bi-polar and take all my meds every day, but right now i feel like i'm falling down again. my general health is not good, so the normal remedeis don't work real well. i can mo longer get therapy sessions because my insurance stopped covering that, and i can't afford to pay for it. please don't think i'm trying to get a pity party, i'm honestly not. so if anyone has some ideas for me, please let me know, thanks.
Don't worry about the pity-party. Sounds like you. like many of us, are getting caught in the insurance trap. You need to contact your local MHMR center and ask them about out-patient groups in your area. At the hospital I work at, we have 2 bi-polar groups that meet here each week, a grief support group, and 3 AA meetings a week so I know there are free groups out there you can attend--- the catch is that you have to do the leg work to find 'em. If you don't get much help at the MHMR center, call your local library because I would bet they could find a listing somewhere near you for you to attend groups. Now, of course you won't get one-to-one therapy, but hey-groups do actually help. Besides, if you go regularly, I'd be willing to bet you'll learn of other counselors and therapists who can help you even though you have no insurance. I really hope this helps and I wish you luck. God bless!
Hey, I think everyone is either depressed, overly anxious, or both right now. I have been really freaking out. And we are still under the aura of the full moon, I get so upset and down when there is a full moon. Many cities have group therapy for various types of issues. Group therapy is usually alot cheaper and you are with people going through exactly what you are. It helps me. ALOT. It is just rough out there for everyone and people are broke and scared and that keeps everyone upset. Look or call your local newspaper to find out about any groups and see what they charge. Ours was $15. Your local mental health center may have some based on your income also. And go at least have your bangs trimmed or a quick cheapie manicure. It really will make you feel better. I do so hope you feel better. I am going through the same thing. You are definitely not alone.
