Hold on a second. I realize this sounds like a paranoid delusion but hear me out.
Everyone knows that insurance is obnoxious. Especially when it comes to mental health, it's hard to catch a break. When my therapist, an OCD specialist, decided to switch practices, my insurance decided not to cover her anymore. Nothing about her changed except her location, and they cover other people at her new practice, but they are still giving her trouble.
So, my therapist tells me about this and we try to go about fixing the problem and appealing the decision. We encounter conflicting answers and no results.
I was ready to try new avenues, but my therapist comes back at me with something along the lines of, "Well, we will meet one more time for closure and if things don't work out I can always recommend other therapists to you."
Closure?! What is this, a breakup?
Something about the way she approached it came across as eager to pass me along to someone else. I'm friendly and self-reflective... I imagine I'm a pretty easy patient. So why is she so quick to give up the fight?
Plus, we've been working together for about a year. Now, I get that OCD must be an obnoxious disorder to treat because it can be the same thing over and over, but this is her specialty. I feel like it's helping and the last thing I want is to start over and explain all my meshugas to someone else.
If anything this is a tragedy, but really it's just ridiculous.
