hi all,
i finally made it to the doc and he referred me to a counsellor he thinks he can trust. I've had my share of counsellors/psychiatrists who were clearly more delusional than me.
I'm going on wed morning.
 But here's the next problem.
 i'ii probably only be able to go to one session as at 50euro i'm not going to be able to keep it up anyway. I think i should just cancel and keep my money.
The phychotherapist i'm seeing only live on the opposite road to me and although i don't know her and will be seeing her in a local town 17km away i still think it's too near my doorstep and won't want to confide in her anyway.
In ireland you can do a weekend course or two and get a qualification for counselling/therapy so there are a lot of quacks out there.
I'm not too bad at the moment, still just stressed about money and can't sleep/relax as the impending sense of doom won't leave me. Is therapy going to help that anyway?
We're now 2 months behind the mortgage and i don't think it's fair on my husband for me to indulge in therapy at the moment. I'm just confused, even though i know already that i'm going to cancel it. I've already sold a bicycle just for groceries, thank god i'm not a junkie anymore!
I feel the need to really get a grip on myself, hmmmmm, i just don't know!

Hi Boo,

Personally in your situation. I wouldn't go. I would wait till funds are flowing that way you can get into a session and at least keep going. Going to the first one usually is a just get to know you and therapist questions anyway. It would IMO be a waste of money.

I would call the therapist and explain the situation and see if you can have an open ability to reschedule and appt when you can afford to continue the sessions. Or take this time to check up on other therapists.

Take care
