@Historylover I had not seen a psychiatrist in over a decade but have to go back and get a medication review and adjustment. 


Similar scenario.  The guts has been ripped out of mental healthcare.


They are now following the American model of psychiatric care: the corporate medical version where you have to pay full price and wait for a medicare payment. 


My new shrink wants hundreds of dollars.


All I want is my medicine to be changed, not as if I could afford the luxury of paying somene huge outlays just to listen to my patient history. 


I feel sorry for the younger folk who are newly diagnosed who have no supports and are practically dumped in the community left to tread water.


Its so totally wrong. 


Anyway I hope you find some kind of service and someone who is compassionate and caring. 


We deserve better after what we've been through.
