To be honest, since psychologists have to be in college/grad school for like 12 years I always shocked here when people act like they are being ripped off when they pay much. I don’t mean you acted like that at all, but others on these boards have. I don’t know if some don’t have a concept of the education required or the usual costs, but $200 is so low it makes me wonder what they did, you know? I mean attorney’s charge 250/hr and up, physicians too, psycholgists go to school longer than either of those on average. So 1 hour interview and then the time to review and pay for the test stuff and then write up a 2-4 page report would reasonably be at least $500.

But so glad you got done with everything!!!

Paid out of pocket for everything. Psych evaluation was $199. No longer obese, no longer pre-diabetic, and my Vitamin D is back in the normal range. Next month will be 2 years since surgery. I work in an alternative school that serves K-12. I will try not to get the virus, but the odds are not looking good for when school starts if I still have a job (won’t know for sure until July). The good news is that because of WLS I have a lesser chance of it being a death sentence.

I work for Communities In Schools (non-profit), a portion of our salaries are paid for by the Texas Education Agency and our director has already been notified that they can expect budget cuts. Either way, I will be in a school, because before all this started I applied to grad school and got accepted. I can’t back out now, because my adult kids bought my books for Mother’s Day. So, maybe I can get a grocery store job, or live off student loans and unemployment. I am almost 50 and have never drawn unemployment before.

That was a long ramble to say, I am glad I paid for the surgery. It was a hard recovery for me, but it is worth it because I got my health back on track.
