Wow...awful treatment, I can empathise to some extent. Perhaps it's time for a new doc

Hey Zoloft,
I feel for you. I don't take meds, BUT I've always had money issues get in the way of therapy - by which I mean that therapists can't seem to grasp how working AND being on a low income demands a kind of courage that sitting in a comfy consulting room making judgements on other people doesn't. It's a different world, a different mind-set - from psychotherapy.

I'm now writing and possibly publishing about how poverty affects people mentally, but becoming more assertive and articulate about it has only distanced me further from the whole therapy profession.

Where I'm located we don't have subsidised clinics any more. I'm talking Western Europe - I know the US has differences.

I wish you well!! You sure sound like you are coping well with a super difficult situation, so please keep fighting and taking care of yourself cos I think you are super worth it!
