As a single Dad, I find no shame in needing help

I meant to share this prior to now but with the boys being sick, it got pushed to the back burner. 

If you recall, I spoke about needing additional help with my depression and that finding a decent psychiatrist in my area is proving to be next to impossible. 


I spoke with my PCP on Thursday morning and she has added Abilify to my arsenal. 

Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened yet for two reasons.  The first is that insurance requires a prior authorization and as this ran into the weekend, it didn’t get done yet. 

The second reason, which is really irrelevant, is the fact that everyone was sick and I wasn’t going to start something new under those circumstances.

I don’t like starting a new medication period because there’s always an adjustment phase and as a single parent, that’s not always easy to work around. 

My goal is to follow up today at some point and figure out what’s going on. 

With any luck, this will be just the boost I need to get myself out of this rutt and back on track. 

Sometimes I just need a little help to get moving again and I find no shame in admitting that.
