That is are not a loser and just kick that "stinkin thinkin to the curb. I know who is thow.........your ex-therapist is a Loser and very unprofessional.
Now you start to work on your self-esteem and you will find that you won't be listening to anyone call you anything but a wonderful person.

Find something productive that you love to do (writing, dancing, acting, programming, or whatever) and then find a group of like-minded people who are interested in learning this activity with you. The group is your support structure and your growth catalyst, and it will help you accomplish something you can be proud of.

Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are simply quite wonderful.

We believe in you.

Today is a new day so out of bed and work on feeling better.

We often waste way too much of our time and energy focusing on what we don't like, what we're worried about, or what we think needs to be fixed, changed, or enhanced.

There are great things happening in your life and around you all the time.

Celebrate the good stuff around us, in others, and in ourselves.

I wish you peace,

What an A**hole! Your therapist is truly in need of therapy. I spent about 3 years in a pit of despair, wishing i wouldn't wake up, but evey morning, life rolled on.
I also get fired, but i just got another job and tried to learn where i could improve.
If life is overwheling at the mo, just take little steps. Get up have a shower and make yourself get outside, even for a walk. No matter how hard it is i garantee you'll feel so much the better for it.
Sometimes, if i'm really bad, I'II be walking along with tears streaming down behind my sun glasses and hat, you never cry for as long when you're outside. Staying inside allows you to stay down. Take that step, you deserve to be happy.
Take care, boo

I don't think it's right that a company can fire you over a medical disability!!! Fortunately, I have been at my job for 18+ years before my symptoms came to the surface and reared their ugly head. I have been trying to manage with Xanax and Zoloft, which helped, but lately I have been more down than up, and going to my MD for possibly increasing dosage. It is very upsetting to me to have been a very high functioning person, and go to the complete opposite!!! That's why I am only starting my second week of SDI. I knew if I didn't try something else, I could be in jeopardy as well. I went to a therapist for a few visists, and she was helpful, but she wanted to see me more than I could afford. I agree with boo32---that therapist is in the wrong profession!!! Hang in there. Remember--it's "all in your head" and uncontrollable.

Take care!!!

Sometimes I really wonder about therapists.  I once had one tell me that anxiety is the most self centered, egotistical disorder on the planet.  That we spend all our time thinking about ourselves, panic over every little ache and if we are the center of the universe and all that exists is our self inflicted misery.  I left there feeling like I was selfishly breathing air that someone else with a real life could use.

You aren't the loser...he is.  The end.
