👉(11/30/22) @JohnW150496 great advice. It was strange last year talking to a counselor I never saw (phone). But he did give me great advice on coping with the COVID isolation. Nicole 🙂 👈

GONE!.--Don'tt try to get a  Psychiatrist they LEFT. I know people who need "psychiatric meds" must use"nurse practitioners or even an internist.--only for medication.)---incidentally, that type of med is often a "brain-damage med".Peop,le don't understand about psychiatric meds--they are often to fix BRAIN DAMAGE,often forever.--not everyone, but a lot of them.--A lot of psychiatric damage is permanent.--it does not heal up.

It's a real problem in South Florida too. To find proper medical and mental health programs for Medicare and disability clients to get help. I thought I would be able to get better info/help on AARP, but not so. I guess they are all waiting on us to get sicker and die. Less elderly to help. New immigrants are coming every day to take our place.
