I don't know how I can fall apart so quickly. Feeling great last night, then so many things that greatly upset me today. I know people say not to get upset about things you can't do anything about, but how does a person really make that work? I feel so down and upset and not myself. I feel defeated and given up. I don't know where to go or what to do or how to think about things differently. I feel alone. Life sucks. I can't make it through this.

I found out on Wednesday that the psychiatrist I've been seeing for 4 years has been fired by the group he was with. I don't know why. He is by far the best psychiatrist I've ever seen and I trusted him 100%. I don't believe he did someting "bad"--he's not like that and I won't believe that. The way I found out was so very upsetting. I had called his office to ask about something else and after talking to me, the receptionist so callously says, "Oh, and by the way, all your appointments with Dr. R have been cancelled. As of last week he no longer works here." I was stunned. She goes on to say, "And you can't get in to see anyone else for months as they are all booked."

It does not seem silly at all and you are not alone in how you responded to this.

OMG!! I couldn't believe what I was reading when I read your post!!! I have to hand it to you, though, you stuck it out and kept calling and took some necessary steps. That's DEVASTATING!!! It never ceases to amaze me how the office personnel...as well as agencies as a whole...are so cold when it comes to our emotional well-being. Where's the compassion? Did they ever stop to think how much that would impact you? So cold and heartless!
