Okay, so I already have to drive a really long way to my psychiatrist office. However, I only have to go like once every 3 or 6 months. If I have an appointment in the afternoon after work, I would leave and it would take me about 35-40 minutes from my job to get there. Well, they called to inform me that he is moving to their other office which is even further away, lol! It's an hour and a half from my house. And that's how long I will have to drive on my next appointment, which is not until July, because I will be off work for the summer and I will be driving all the way from our house. Just needed to share this. I'm staying positive about it though. I mean, it's not THAT bad as long as he lets me keep only having to come every 6 months.

Oh, I absolutely LOVE driving!!! Last year during Spring Break, I drove from my house in Alabama, all the way down south to Gulf Shores. It was like a 5 or more hour trip and I did that by myself. I have never had a problem driving long distances. I would drive across the US if I had the money and a destination, lol! However, now that I have Dee, my partner, and Grace, my pit bull, I'm sure that they would be with me, lol! But yes, I really love driving!

I drive 1 1/2 hrs to see my reg dr on a monthly basis...yes, she's that good!....otherwise, i wouldn't be doing that! Once you find a good dr, you don't want to let go!!

Mandieo is right. You should both be really pleased that driving isn't an issue for you. It is for me. In fact, it's probably my most debilitating thing in my anxiety closet. Froggy, you are right as well. I kept my insurance after I had to retire even though it's almost $600 monthly. I want to keep my regular doctor ans...yes, he's that good! lol
