How can you tell if your child care provider is in good health?

You mostly can't: Beyond the signs of obvious illness (fever, runny nose, cough, etc.), you can't tell. Just by looking, you can't tell if your child care provider might be carrying a virus, if she has a silent cancer growing, if she has diabetes she's not taking care of effectively, or most anything else. You can only see the illnesses that are obvious to all of us.

A parent has provided a mental health professional a falsified document from the daycare provider? What should I do?

Falsified document?: I'm not sure what kind of "falsified document" you mean. Also you haven't mentioned your relationship to the person the document is about. If you're concerned about the safety of a minor, though, you can report it to child protective services in your area. If you're the other parent of the child in question, you can also advise the mental health professional of your concerns.

If: If add is the only problem and you have been stable on the same medication on the same dosage for a while, then usually this can be followed by a general or family practice physician. However, there are some general and family physicians who do not prescribe psychotropic medications. So, as you are looking for your new doctor, inquire as to whether he or she is willing to prescribe simple (not requiring multiple psychiatric medications) psychiatric medications. Good luck.

How do I deal with my fear of abandonment from health care providers?

That depends: I see that you are o effexor (venlafaxine). Is fear of abandonment a more general issue in your life than just fear of health care providers giving up on you? If it is, the answer will be to address that pattern within yourself. Some people look to physicians to fill dependency needs & feel abandoned when the physician can not. When that is the case, lowering expectations will help.
