Ian's Mental Health Treatment
I'm trying to defray the costs of therapy/treatment through maybe the most trying years of my yet-lived life. I suffered a kind of breakdown in the months following my father's death in 2015, eventually landing in the hospital earlier ths year. I was/am treated for major depression and a panic disorder, and rebuilding has been a slow (and expensive) process. I do get some help with medication from my insurance through work.
The bulk of my expenses are for my incredible therapist, who came out of retirement to work with me again. We first met about 7 years ago and hadn't met for some time. So far the treatment has been a success, but my therapist is not in an insurance network, so I have to pay her out of pocket for our twice-weekly meetings. I have accumulated quite a sizable debt in this way, and despite my best efforts I'm having trouble making headway.
The money donated will be used directly for therapy, and even the smallest amount is helpful. I will be sending every single donor a handmade thank-you of some kind.
Your help would be so geatly appreciated. I know that the holidays are slim financial times for many of us, so I apologize for soliciting. I'm not sur ewhat else to do.
