I'm sorry that she can't get you in sooner. Make sure that you're on the list to call if there are any cancelations.

Hang in there, babe. I love you. <3 *hug*
belenen ══╣beautiful╠══
Oh, I'm all over that list like buttah on corn. heh heh. She said there may be a cancellation this week, so we'll see. *looks hopeful*

I love you too, thank you so much for the encouragement. It meant a lot.

Atleast you *have* an appointment. My shrink got sick and is on leave for who knows how long :(
belenen ══╣upset╠══
oh that's awful. I'd be so anxious. Maybe you can find someone else to help you in the meantime?
rangoth ══╣╠══
I dunno, thats real hard because there is all this shit you have established that you gotta explain ya know?
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
Yeah, that is true... the group that my counselor is a part of keeps a file, and if you switch counselors, the new counselor just goes through and reads the file beforehand so that you don't have to fill her/him in on stuff. But if you were planning on going back to your old therapist, I can see how it would feel like a waste of time to get comfortable with a new one.

Yeah, at this point I am caught between a rock and a hard place. I do not want to go to someone else for I wish to show support to my current therapist while he is sick however I know that I am in real trouble and need help so I do not know what to do. Sometimes don't you wish you could take a pill and just fix your broken mind? :)

Just a suggestion - but maybe you could write down the days that are particularly hard in readiness for your meeting with Patricia. I always find writing has a cathartic effect. It could be anything, poetry, or even a few words that sum up your day --

just a suggestion -- I've taken up oil painting again as my 'stress-relief'

But remember you are not alone - you have a great husband and friends who love you. If you need to talk to someone there are people available (myself included)

HUG

Thank you, that comment really encouraged me.

I've actually been itching to paint lately, but haven't gone to buy a canvas... I wonder what will come out if I just let it flow. Hm. Now I'm planning on getting a canvas, instead of just thinking about it. ;-)

can you call in for an earlier session?

or I dont know what kind of person you see, but when I used to see my social worker he would always be available at the top of the hour to talk for a tiny bit.

belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
Hm. I might email Patricia and ask her if she is willing to do anything like that.

I hope you feel better, or something good happens to make you feel better. Is it sort of ups and downs?

Maybe you could call the woman from your church, the one who gave you her number? Do you already speak to her often? If not then maybe having someone "new" to talk to might help- and you know she is willing to listen. Or maybe you could go back over in your mind all that you've done at counselling so far, see how much progress you've made, get back some of the good feelings.

Thoughts are with you *hugs*

Well, mostly it's been ups lately, but finding out that I wasn't scheduled for so long was a huge disappointment. I'm ready to be finished, and I don't want to stay in this transitory period, yet without guidance I'm kinda lost. But the good news is I'm going to be in a 7-week 'restoration' course starting next week -- it's like a group counseling thing.

Thank you for the encouraging words, they mean more than you know.
