I went to see my counselor the other day. Well I hadn't seen her in about a year and then I went back. But she said that it would be best if I saw someone else. So she put me onto another person. She told me she isn't abandoning me... and I tried to agree with her and say that I didn't feel abandoned but I guess I did in a way. She said the lady I am going to see is nice. I think that I will give it a go anyway, and see how it turns out, maybe this new person will be ok... I don't know. I guess I am just filled with anxiety about the whole thing, and a little sad that I have to change counselors. But She told me it was all for the best. She thinks it will just bring up old stuff we already talked about and will bring us round in circles... so seeing someone else might bring in a new perspective... maybe... I don't know. I guess I will find out... eeek.

I can understand that you feel abandoned - that is a normal feeling I think. A new counseller may have a different persepctive on things and could help. They all work so differently.
Try to go in with an open mind. Once you get the first appt out of the way Im sure you will feel more comfortable.

When do you see her?

I see her on the 5th March, so I have a while to wait... I will give it a go and see how it turns out. I have been feeling quite bad lately... I just have to keep very busy to keep my mind off stuff......but thats the only appointment that she has free. She knows some things about me... just a few things that my old counselor told her over the phone while I was there. I hope that she will be nice.... I hope that I will like her enough to talk to her about things.
