Okay. I did it.
It took me 4 phone calls, but I finally got an appointment with a therapist. The only one who's female and covered by my insurance in the area I work in, AND she has appointments available after work. It must be fate.
She seemed very nice on the phone, too. The other one I played phone tag with sounded so cold and impersonal. I know it was just a voicemail, but I'm sorry, it turned me off. I like friendly, mom-type therapists. This one seems kinda like that. We even laughed a little.
I hope it works out and that I like her in person. We'll see next Wednesday!
