Terrence Gorski is a prolific writer and author of many self-help books and manuals for overcoming addiction and mental health issues. He is writing for Medivance Billing services blog. I have the privilege and honor of illustrating each blog post with my Mental Health Humor style of cartooning. The series created for Terry is titled “Gorski On Charting“. While the series highlights many of the aspects of consumer billing & consumer charting, I find that Mr. Gorski’s writing is more than just facts and figures or charting statistics.

Are you like me? I HATE TO WAIT! Even when I’m in a line and I don’t have anything to do after I finish my errand… I still hate to wait!
Yes, we could explore the psychological affect behind the need to have my needs attended to before yours. I’m sure it’s part of a complex flaw I have that has effected every aspect of my life. I was thinking about this a few weeks back, while I was in the “waiting” room at the Hospital Emergency Room. As I was waiting, a person came in with very serious injuries and they whisked him off to the back for help….
That got me thinking about the waiting area at the behavioral health provider I go to. Even when I set a appointment, I still have to wait between 25 to 45 minutes. A few times, it was over an hour. What if they saw you based on the seriousness of your condition?
