I am worried that my probation officer is of the opinion that the psychiatrist took me off medication simply because I was "refusing" to take medication as opposed to not taking medication due to running out. I think I'm in trouble because I had offered to pay my probation supervision fee during the beginning of the meeting and she later did not take payment. She either forgot or is trying to save me money? Also to complicate matters I have two different probation officers. One for local and one for state for three separate charges. I go and see my state probation officer next week. Should I go see a different psychiatrist and get on medication before then as a precaution or does this somehow make me guilty of violating my probation?
