Hello all. I went to my 4th therapy session yesterday. I have decided this is not the therapist for me. Am I wrong in expecting to be the one to talk about MY feelings and what I need help with in coping with my bp husband? This woman always has a story to share with me about nonsense.
I don't want to hear about other people's problems during my counseling session! I don't want to hear about how many classes she's taken in medication information! She keeps telling me to just let my husband's mean comments roll off me because it's not his fault. It's the illness and once he's stabilized on his meds, he'll change. Yeah right! I don't see it.
You guys on this forum are more supportive and more thoughtful than this therapist. I have already scheduled an appt with another therapist. Do I even need to be wasting my time? The only good advice I got from this woman was to get in to see the p-doc to have my husband's meds adjusted, which is getting done.
I need to know strategies for dealing with my husband when he says mean things. I had to figure that out on my own- no thanks to my so called therapist.
When I told he our anniversary was coming up and I didn't know what to do about it and whether I should get him a card, a gift or what. She tells me just ignore it. Why do you need to acknowledge it? WHY!!! Because it could either be the beginning of a better relationship or the beginning of the end! She couldn't even give me proper advice on that!
