With my treatment, I know I can’t just wait and be complacent, but must be actively involved in my treatment plan. I have to show my face and introduce myself to those who are part of my support team.
I have been in the Veterans Affairs (VA) system since about 2006. During that period of time, I have seen several different psychiatrists.
Every time I get a new doctor, I have to reintroduce myself. In doing so, I want to present my best self, I want to be seen as a person who cares.
