I’m currently midway in the #not-girlboss-part-of-my-life. I’m coping with shitty jokes. My depression and health anxiety have never been worse, and I’m dealing with an undiagnosed vertigo disorder. My neurologist and ENT thought they had a answer with vestibular migraines but it doesn’t seem like that’s it. I feel so trapped, like the appointments are so few and far in between, and that nobody really wants to help me. Y’know that scene in the exorcist where the mom screams “oh everybody’s sorry” at the doctors? That’s where I’m at. I’m scared I’ll never get better. I see a therapist but I don’t think she’s right for me. And truthfully, I don’t know what I WANT because I don’t know what I NEED because I barely know what I HAVE! Just transitioned from pediatrician to adult psychiatrist and it’s like starting from square one. Please I need some hope, just some advice or a hug in the form of a text. I need to know I can get through this. Sorry for the long rant, but I need some friends <3 Does anybody have a similar journey? I don’t want to be alone.

      I had a similar experience entering college, it was all great at first and then I just started spirling, I went from the top of my class to the bottom and I felt totally out of control with no one to help me. Felt completely alone. Got to the point where I got rock bottom, dropped out, moved to NC and married my high school sweet heart who's military. Turns out despite what everyone else was telling me to be and how to act was wrong bc I have never been happier. I'm with the loml with 2 dogs and a full time job. Sure my depression still gets to me but I found thag when I finally let go and just let myself be, it opened up a whole new world for me. I would love to chat with you if you need to vent or want some encouragement ❤️

      I’m in the same boat, or similar boat :): I had to start from square one just like you a few years ago and everything has felt empty since, I feel so alone.. no one around me has similar issues/problems/understands the feeling. lmk if you wanna talk, i’d love some company 🫠

      I don't have insurance and my doctor hardly gets to see me because of it. It takes months for a doctor to see me, it's horrible I understand that stranded feeling.

        @calliecill as someone who works in health insurance and has experience in other health fields, you can 100% advocate for yourself, get a patient advocate (some are provided by hospitals some are third party) or you can request you medical records and find someone who will listen to you. If you want to talk more about it I'm here ❤️
