Don't think about legal action now, just keep recording everything (don't just leave it up to your shrink) and see how you feel in a year from now. I know you need the money for your sessions but even if you did start immediately the money would never be through in time. In my case the other side didn't deny what had happened but a settlement still took 1.5 years to happen.
How did you feel when Rhianna took back Chris Brown a week after he had beaten her senseless? I imagine you wondered WTF like the rest of the world. I think she said something about missing him and still loving him and I though ARGH!! He beat you!! In your case the doctor didn't hit you but he sure messed you up good and proper.
KEEP RECORDING EVERYTHING!! Every sick day. Every appointment. Every cent you spend that might be caused by him.

One day at a time is right hun, you have come such a long way.
If you read this topic from beginning to now you can see how far you have progressed and how much stronger you have become.
There may be some free services available to you if you contact your local mental health team. There are plenty of loopholes and ways to get around the system if you are able to link in with the right people
Just remember you have an entire army here ok bubhub that are fully supportive of you and if you are having weak moments (we all have them), where you need a bit of support, there are plenty of people here willing to offer it. Just know that lots of us think of you often and send positive thoughts xx

Sorry I haven't read other replies but honestly, I think he has done this before and he is totally praying on your vulnerability. I have no idea how you should handle it as I don't know what it's like having your mental complications...but I seriously think he might be a "successful sociopath" (look it up). And even if he isn't, this isn't going to end well, trust me.
*good vibes for you*

Hi undercover! Lovely to hear from you. Would it be easier for you to take legal action against the practice as his employer? Not sure if it's possible, but they have certainly contributed to how you're feeling right now.
I know you're feeling a lot of feelings, but it's so great to acknowledge them as I believe understanding how you feel is fundamental to your healing. And you will heal.
Take care x

Mrsharvey I will look into that. There's a huge part of me that does not want to take legal action but another part that is deeply hurting as a result of his misconduct. It's not fair that I am suffering so much worse directly resulting from the position I went to for help. I just wonder if it would help me heal or if it would make things worse.
i am really struggling today and keep wishing that I had not ruined the doctor patient relationship.. That is what I am really missing. Feelings of his aside, I really relied on him and I hate that I have lost it. I know it sounds silly and sometimes I wonder if I am actually crazy for hurting this badly... I wonder if a day will come that I can go a few minutes without thinking about it all, at the moment, I can't.
You have all been so helpful and I really thank you xx any advice is always appreciated and gives me something to read!!

Just be aware that any legal action against him will cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
Even if you win and get your costs awarded, you will still have to pay upfront before getting anything back.

Plus you have to take into account if you lose, you mightn't have to pay your own lawyer but in all likelihood you will have to pay for the other side's legal costs.
If you sue the medical practice instead of - or as well as - which makes sense because they will have deeper pockets to pay should you win, you also have to factor in that those deeper pockets mean they can afford more expensive representation and will likely do so.

No, I never had to pay a cent until the end, and it came directly out of a settlement. If you withdraw from the case you have to pay.
Though its true if you lose you may have to pay the other sides costs. They will give you a fair idea on what your chances are at an initial meeting.

You know, hypothetically if I had a case and had a hypothetical settlement....
