Update and explanation

Now I might as well explain what the last blog was about.
That very day, I went to see my new doctor. I made the appointment three months prior to that, and the receptionist told me all sorts of lies to get me in the door. "Yes, I know you are on Medicare, that you will need help getting your medications, and this doctor will help you will all of that." Turns out when I actually saw the doctor, he told me he was unable to help me with anything, and that he can't even take me as a patient because I was on Medicare (despite the fact that I paid for that appointment out of my own pocket). Seeing as I was left with only six days of medication (which meant I only had six days to find a new doctor that actually was able to help me), I figured I was completely fucked and that the situation was hopeless. So, I had a major meltdown starting the second I walked out of that doctor's office and continuing until I finally got some sleep several hours later.
The situation has improved since then. My grandmother recently found me a doctor using her connections (she used to be a nurse). So, all is not hopeless at this point.
Understand that going off my meds completely is a very scary thought to me.
Well, that is all.
