My husband and i are enrolled in MACP, he's a E5 and im a SPC and we were starting the process of trying for a baby and I was seeing BH for my anxiety and panic attacks. Im set to ETS Oct2021. I PCSd to Korea in August, once i in processed i made appointments to BH and let my command know what was going on before left my last unit. The BH wasn't working for me,, they were only 30 mins long and the provider didn't help much she talked, but was off topic and only focused on one thing at a time. Being in Korea alone, no one to trust and rely on,, my anxiety and panic attacks got worse, I felt alone, depressed to the point i contemplated ODing on Ibuprofen. My chain of command was informed on my thoughts and so was my BH provider. I was on suicide watch, for a bit. I had to check in with my NCOs every 3 hours and they took my Ibuprofen. I wasn't hospitalized. The BH provider didn't talk much to me about it, I told her it wasn't working out with her and that i needed to seek a higher care through my actual unit's BH. I have an appointment with my units BH in 2 weeks, i thought about getting chaptered out with adjustment/depression disorder, but now i found out about compassionate Reassignment. On top of being stressed out having insomnia, Im still having panic attacks, depression, and anxiety. It's too much, the BH at my last unit helped a lot and with the help of my husband.
