Kaiser Patient Stories
Diagnosis of severe depression and anxietyPublished Tuesday, December 25, 2018
I went into preterm labor and lost my baby in a very traumatic ER experience. Although I had a diagnosis of severe depression/anxiety, I was unable to see my therapist but once every other month. Then, out of nowhere, I was told that Kaiser’s policies had changed, and my psychiatrist was placing me back to work before I was fully treated and before my therapy groups had fully run their course. This came as a huge shock as I was still in need of further therapy.
