The first psychiatrist (“shrink”) I ever saw helped me through a rough time by prescribing me an anti-depressant. I figured I’d be on it short term until I was in a better place. That shrink took my health insurance. I didn’t realize how lucky I was. 

Little did I know that once I relocated and needed to find a new doctor, I’d have a better chance of finding a unicorn with a prescription pad than a decent shrink who’d accept my insurance.  Keep reading »

[FYI, I realized upon looking at the photo that it's from a "Saturday Night Live" commercial parody and the woman is actually Tina Fey. Which is a funny coincidence given Ami's "30 Rock" reference. -- Editor] [Prickly Legs]
