Default phychiatrist app. wed.

I have my first app. to see a phychiatrist on wed. for my depression. I don't really know what to expect? I have never been to one before. I really don't have the money, wich is one big problem in my life, how do I bring that up?she may think how can I see this person if he can't pay me. And how do I bring up the medication's I am on and have taken in the past really ruin our sex life worse than what it already is because of my back. I don't????? maybe I am crazy?

How did your appointment go, Bretd? Was the psychiatrist ok? Was it as good or better than you expected, or worse?

Just wondering how things went, and hoping you'd give us an update. God bless and take care. Hugs, Lee

First, I am glad you were able to go to Psych Dr. Is she willing to work with you financially? Hus went a few months ago, first time for him as well. He is not the type to go to Psych Dr at all. He was there about 1.5hrs. Dr said he had never met such an open and honest person as him; who, being male was able to open up and talk. Most men, don't share much. He did give him a med...and hus said it did help to go to Dr.

Hoping this helps you...big hug
