End of story.

Yeah I can understand that. So should I put the therapy on hold for now then maybe, if the job I has, happens to only work one daytime shift?

First of all, you may not need to go every week or weekly only for the first few sessions.

And, is there a reason it may take a couple hours? Is there any way you could time it for the end of the day or over lunch? I'm not sure from your work but I guess if you're on a production line there is little flexibility.

So perhaps you can find another therapist or group of doctors with evening or weekend hours - most have them - do you have to see this specific therapist/doctor?

Consider ALL your options - you are thinking kind of narrowly, it seems.

Can you find a different therapist? I'm sure there are more in your area that have at least one day with later or earlier office hours.

I was referred to this office particularly, but I can look elsewhere or ask the doctor if there is another office, with different hours.

Well 2 hours in the sense that it would take half an hour to get there from my work about, and then the session is an hour, and then it would take about half an hour to get back.

As for doing it over my lunch, I would a very physical job, and if I don't have lunch, then I don't work near as well, I find, which is the reason to have lunch, to keep up ones energy of course, so I don't think it would be a good idea to do it over lunch. I could eat on the way though, just worried it might distract my driving, but maybe it can work.

Yes, as to the bolded. Your doctor who refered you obviously thinks you could do well with therapy. Dont gi e up because the first therapist has only a few hours he or she sees patients.

Oh okay, well I could just call a different office in on my own, is it worth going back to the doctor for to get his blessing so to speak?

Did your doctor's referral have anything to do with insurance, as in did they maybe check to see that your insurance would cover mental health visits or something similar? If you are self paying completely out of pocket, or if you can self refer then you don't need your doctor's 'blessing'

Oh I was paying out of pocket. I think the referral's just had to do with who the doctor's office knows I thought.

Oh is it bad as being on the record as having a condition?

What inability to hold a steady job? Do I have than inability? I mean I quit the last job because I was having health problems cause of the bathroom issue they had there, but aside from that one job, do I have an inability to hold a job?
