We are all going to counseling! I tried to go with my PPD but they would not allow children, even babies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: So I quit. My dh and I both have past abues issues of different natures and we have needed couples counseling for a long time.<br><br>
My 6yo Abi has been expressing some real anger and jealousy issues over her sister's health issues. I called Child Life today at the Children's Hospital and got some great tips. I then called and got Abi an appt for a counselor for next week. I told dh it would be good if all of us got counseling. He has always refused it in the past. I am getting us in with the main reason being to help our children with these ongoing medical issues and to create a more stable environment for our kids. He is going to do it for the kids. Hopefully we can get into some deeper issues eventually and we can get help for eachother as well.<br><br>
Huge milestone, getting dh to go to counseling. I asked him to chose male or female counselor and he chose female and said to go ahead and book the appt.

Ugh. Every place I have called is not taking new clients. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I got the numbers from our insurance company. I will call back tomorrow and ask for more that are farther away. Bummer. I hope we can get in at least once before we leave for India. Otherwise we are looking at July to get in for the first time.

Still can't find anyone taking new clients. I guess there are a lot of stressed-out people in my area.

Yeah it's pretty bad. At least with medical specialists we just have to wait a couple months.
