Hi guys,
Wednesday will be my 5th therapy appointment. I don't know why But I DREAD going. For the last few days I have been sick to my stomach and crying. We are doing CBT which I don't find useful. I really want to stop going. My husband says I'm fighting it too hard, I must need to be going. I never feel better after a session. I'm so tense I just cry when I get to the car.
What's wrong with me ????

wish I could help you more than letting you know I am thinking of you. I will keep you in my thoughts on Wednesday. Please let us know how things go. I also konw that I tried several therapists before finding one that I felt was doing me any good.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.

Thanks for all your support. I made it through unscathed this time. largely because he did most of the talking!! Unfortunately, being military care (about which I have NO complaints), switching therapists is harder than it might be otherwise. I did get assertive (for me that is) and told him that I thought this was a waste of time. I felt no better, I didn't feel as if we were getting anywhere. He agreed that we had not had as much sucess progress as he had hoped and that perhaps we had better try a different strategy. Hooray.
I only get to see him a couple of times a month since they have a shortage of doctors (they keep sending them to Iraq). O know I have a lot of deeply buried ossues I need to address but his theory is to focus on the future, not the past. Whatever.

Anyway, your kind words and encouragement really helped me face the day,

Peace friends,

Glad you felt some progress was made at your last session. It sounds like your therapist and mine have a similar approach. Mine wants to focus on the what is the undesired behavior and thinking, then determine what is necessary to change. She feels that if you label a person with a specific mental illness then the person can use the label as an excuse for continuing the undesierable behavior. Good luck and keep us posted on how you are doing.

Thanks so much Annie !

I am feeling much better today and I got those hugs!!

Therapy has been very frustrating. Most people find it helpful, I have found it a dead end. SO far I have not gotten any relief.
Baby steps I can do.

Hugs right backatcha!!

Peace,

Sadsunshine
