I need to get it all out here...

I just up and quit my job on the 14th. It was a spur of the moment move, and I blamed it on the other techs being mean to me, and one of the vets being condescending and just awful.

I have been diagnosed with bipolar a few years ago, and have an awful habit of skipping doses, which comes with a high price. This time, it was my job and my family's income.

My problem, in addition to being irresponsible with medication, is that I care too much about what others think or say. I don't know how to let it roll off and move on, like an adult. Most of the techs are young, and love to gossip and be stupid. The vet in question....well, there are vets like that everywhere and I need to learn to not take everything so personally.

I need to see a counselor to help deal with these issues, but have no insurance.

I am overwhelmed by the number of animals I have, but don't have the guts to get rid of them. I'm going to lose my marriage if this keeps up, along with my sanity.

Someone please kick my ass.

Oh and I see that I posted something similar a couple of years ago. Nice. It's one thing to ask for help, it's another to actually take the advice I'm given. I need to get my ass kicked for that too.

Is there a grad school nearby where you can get counseling for free? They would just be students but they can still be helpful coming up with some coping mechanisms that aren't so destructive. When I was still working we had county mental health center that did sliding scale payments too. There was also a psychiatrist on staff, actually at both mental health service organization I worked for. If you need help researching your area let us know.

I'm nearby university of Cincinnati, Xavier uni, Northern Kentucky uni...I'm not sure if that's what you mean by grad school. I would gladly see a student. I know they have to get their start somewhere, plus it's reduced cost. I DO need new coping skills. My insecurities and compulsiveness affects nearly every aspect of my life, even here. Not that SM is bad for me, it's actually good for me to read and see that I'm not alone. I also read how others deal with situations and think "man, I wish I had the calmness, tact, confidence, (insert word here) to deal with my problems that way.

As far as researching my area...how would I start? And yes, any help would be appreciated, thank you Click here to enlarge

Thanks wren Click here to enlarge

So here's a link to the masters program for U of Cincinnati:

http://cech.uc.edu/programs.html?cid=18MA-MHC

I would call the number at the bottom of the page, or call the main university number, to find out if they have students doing clinic hours there on campus. At my relatively small university they did so I imagine there will be something set up.

I'm not sure what community is easiest for you to access, but try googling community mental health centers for you area.

Sending good vibes. Hang in there. Sometimes you just have to leave a job and if people are making you uncomfortable, maybe it wasn't the worst decision, impulsive or not. New doors will open. Click here to enlarge

I'm so glad Grace. Mine still hasn't come through but when I went down to the VA for mental health after my "vacation" at club "crazy" they saw me so quickly and helped me out with meds until I could be seen by a doc, I guess being assaulted during active duty helped too but the Psychiatric nurse practitioner was so compassionate!

Don't give up if that doesn't pan out though, ok? Try the other universities near you and google community mental health centers for your area.

I know I'm repeating myself but it's extremely easy to just continue on with the status quo, no matter whether it's working for you or not. It's the path of least resistance but you can do better for yourself. Click here to enlarge

This. Another thought. Call any hospitals that have mental health units, and ask them about resources they give to clients that are being discharged. I have a huge list of programs at my disposal due to my lack of income, and my mental health history. Guess it's not all that hard to convince people I'm crazy. Click here to enlarge

Catholic Social services of Cincinnati provides counseling free or on a sliding scale. But if you can be seen at UC go there instead (personal experience with both).
