I've been thinking about this forever but I cant get it off my mind. So if I've posted on here before, I'm sorry.
I really dont know still if I should cut my therapy. My one therapist I havent seen in about 8 weeks, which is a VERY long time for that, and now she seems kinda busy like she doesnt have the time. But I always went before and I just dont know if I should go back. I feel very different and distant now, and overall just plain stupid.
Why do counselors act like that? I always get the impression that theyre just big shots and they cant even treat you nicely when you reach out for help. I always think that I'm just a waste of her time.

Maybe she isn't the right counselor for you. I have had some before that I just didn't feel comfortable with. Can you get a different one?

Remember that they have bad days just like we do. Is it possible that she was just having a bad day? She might of had something on her mind.

I would let her know that I felt a distance and that it didn't feel the same as usual and see what she says. Be open and honest with her, she might be acting in a way that she doesn't realize. It could just be miscommunication.

It could also be that it felt different because you hadn't had an appointment for so long. That has happened to me, I had to postpone my appointment due to the weather. So it has been a long time since I have seen mine.

I hope that you can get things straightened out.

Don't give up just yet.

Hugs, Karen

Check out my topic on self are every bit as wise and wonderful as your counselor so do not feel she is looking down at you.  That is the stinkin thinkin but I agree with Karen. You maybe should find a new therapist that you feel a trust relationship with.

Remember the therapists and meds cannot heal us alone but they can help us heal ourselves and feel better about who we are.
