I don't know if I want to see my pdoc again. Here's why and a bit of history:
I have been seeing my T for almost two years now. When I first started seeing her, I was also being prescribed meds by my gynecologist as she was the only health care provider I saw on any regular basis. Anyhow, after awhile I found a regular doctor who is in family practice. When my insomnia first got really severe and she ran out of things she felt comfortable prescribing for me, she suggested I see a psychiatrist. So, I now see her. We are finally at a point where there is something working for the sleep.
Okay--my insurance covers a set # of visits to a mental health professional/year. Well, that means my T and my pdoc together. I would rather use as many of my mental health visits going to my T, not my pdoc. Yet, I am worried about NOT seeing her b/c if I go back to my regular doctor, then what if I have to return to my pdoc? I worry she'll be upset, or something. I also worry that my regular doctor won't want to deal with me (no, I haven't asked her). I don't know. If I had my choice (which I guess I do in a way), then I would see my family practice doctor as far as prescriptions and checkups for depression & insomnia medication. That way, no more sessions are going to be taken from potential T visits.
So, what do you think? I am asking so even if I don't like your answer, I want it! :) I have spoken with my T regarding this, but you know how therapists are--"What do you think, Stacy?" :) Other than that, she just thinks I need to ask my family practice doc about it.
REALLY wanting your thoughts on the matter. Happy Daylight Saving Time night! Stacy
