So, by now we all know that I was attacked in my car, physically assaulted, and am now dealing with post traumatic stress.

I've been referred for counseling, they called yesterday while I was out. I called back first thing this morning. First available appointment? MAY 29?!

I kid you not. I'm expected to keep dealing with this ON MY OWN for 6 more weeks, when my DR thinks I need immediate help with the trauma.

What the hell??

Tomorrow morning I'm going to call victim services at the DA's office and see if they have a specialist in pts or a support group or SOMETHING that will help sooner.

I am damned if I'm waiting six more weeks to start getting my life back!

Rant over...for now emoticon

Have a good one, sparkies emoticon

    You have a good idea to call victims services. Also call around to therapists in your area who deal with trauma, they're not all created equal. Some can fit you in, and will. Most off all, talk and write, engage supportive people who understand. It seems like you'll never get through it, but the lilttle I've read of your life experience tells me you're strong and you will. Hang in there!

    Wow that is ridiculous! I hope you can get some answers and find someone to see you soon. Keeping you in my prayers. Remember I'm always around if you need to vent, cry or whatever!

    That’s crazy! It’s good that you know that you need to be your own advocate, frustrating that you have to be.

    That's terrible. I had a similar experience trying to get an appointment for help. Very frustrating

    good call. I think it's unconscionable to wait 6 more weeks to get your life back! Wishing you all the best.
