Dear Carolyn: I suffer from depression that has been fairly well controlled until recently. The past couple of weeks, Im having a terrible episode, to where Im really not sure I want to go on living. I know I need to see a therapist, but Ive gone down the list of therapists in my insurance providers directory and I cant get anyone to return my calls. Ive called and left messages for over a dozen so far and I cant get an appointment.
I no longer live in the state where my original doctor was years ago, so I cant see her anymore. I cant afford to pay out of pocket. I dont have any friends or family who can or are willing to help me make calls and find someone.
It was so hard to get motivated to do this to begin with, and Im at the verge of just giving up entirely. Is there anything else I can do? At the Verge
