Hey,

I just received a letter from my health insurance saying they won't pay for my planned stationary therapy. I am devastated and did self harm. I have no idea what to do right now and feeling completely desperate. I ran into my bed hiding and eating and self harming, but what now? I should be working on my university application (I really don't have much time and must do this) but I can't, I can't do anything without that therapy and I have no idea who to talk to. Who could even change their mind? I messaged my psychiatrist but haven't got an answer yet. No idea what she could do either.

I am trying writing a text with more details on why I need the therapy. Then my psychiatrist will request that they pay for it again. It's just that I have no idea what to write and I have been only procrastinating so far...

Sadly no. I guess I will just have to wait until at some point I manage to do it. That's usually how it works with things I have to do.

Hold back on your application and sort your problems out first. University is only going to add more stress. See about self first .

Yea, that's true. But I have to try it. I really need a way to get out and to meet people, otherwise I can never get better.

I managed to write the text and send it to my psychiatrist two days ago!!!!! I feel so terrible now because she doesn't respond to it, what can I do? I am pretty sure she is very annoyed by me. But she is like my only chance to get that therapy.

I sent another mail at the start of the week but still no response. I feel so horribly abandoned. I should search a new psychiatrist, but that would take months atleast and wouldn't really strengthen my position against the health insurance company... I feel so mich like giving up. I don't understand why everyone always abandons me. I know I am an annoying person but I try my best to not be a nuisance.

I guess I will just crawl inside myself and never come out. Trying to do university later this year again, I don't know what I was thinking. My new plan is to go to sleep every day and hope that I won't wake up.

The stuff you are required to do to get any form of help is just insane. I have no idea how anyone manages to achieve that. All I know is I am done trying.

I am seriously desperate. I see no solution to this problem. I don't have any time left, I must now go into stationary therapy or else there will not be enough time anymore before I will go to university. But I can't study without that therapy. But not studying is also not an option. I cannot survive like this another year staying at home.

What is stationary therapy?

You said you need to write to your insurance to get it?

And oh my goodness applications are stressful. 🙈 I hated doing mine too!

Stationary therapy is therapy while living in a psychosomatic clinic. It's the only thing that helped me so far.

I managed to write everything, but my insurance needs further elaboration on why I need the therapy. The problem is that my psychiatrist is ignoring me since weeks now so I have literally zero chance to send that elaboration to the insurance. And time is running for me.

Why would your therapist ignore you? Can you maybe ask the insurance company for extra time or at least communicate that issue to them and then like try another method of contacting your therapist?

I’m with you, this shouldn’t be made so hard for you to do!
