Ah, the stupidity these days of trying to get medication. On their website, Lifeworks NW clearly states they prescribe medication. It’s even in their FAQ in case some poor sap is confused by their list of available services.
"Does LifeWorks NW prescribe medication?
Yes. Our medical staff and counselors evaluate medication needs necessary to serve each person.”…
So, I’m sure you can well imagine my surprise/irritation yesterday at my psych intake when my therapist said that no, in fact, they DON’T, and that I should go through my primary care provider for that. Whatever, fine. I can do that. Except, I can’t. My primary care provider absolutely, positively, WILL NOT prescribe mental health related medications. So, where the fuck does that leave me? Oh right. FUCKING STILL UNMEDICATED. Somebody please shoot me.
