I'm putting a warning on this post that I cannot control what I am typing so if you are offended by venting and strong language please turn the page.
This post is going to be hard for me to write. I'm really upset right now. I want to cry and not get out of bed. I went to my 2nd seminar and after specifically asking the office if there were any fills based on what I experienced at my first seminar they told me no. Fast forward to the first 30seconds of the seminar. There is a $300 first office visit fee and a $120 pre-op fee for the protein shakes(you don't have to use his), and you HAVE to go to one of his recommeded psychologists. So another co-pay IF they take my insurance, if not $250. WTF!!!!!!!
Did I not SPECIFICALLY ask if there were fees??? I get the fees, but I would like to know in advance. Of COURSE the $300 is due upfront, OF COURSE the $120 is also due shortly thereafter, and OF COURSE the time I have spent with my own psych is not enough.
I really did like the surgeon. He was personable, but cocky-as most are. I'm so scared that this is not going to work for me. Why is this so hard? I'm just frustrated. I really thought that after this seminar I would be able to make my first appointment. Instead I feel defeated. Defeated. WTF. I can't even talk to my husband about it because if I talk about it I think I might cry. I realize that its not the end of the world or anything and I'm sure that people are dealing with more problems than me. I'm just pissed.
Not sure where to go from here. Maybe I'll feel better in the morning or maybe I'll still be having my pity party.
