Sad & Angry,
I am so happy to hear that you are going to continue looking for a counselor and that you will be seeing a psychiatrist. The thing is if we get a bad counselor the first time, we think that they are all like that. I feel so bad for people who get a bad one the first time. They don't realize that there are good ones out there. They think that they are all the same. I would feel the same way. I have had a couple that I just didn't click with, and it made me afraid to try another one. But that happens. The best thing is that we do have choices and we can search until we find one that is right for us. So I am so happy that you aren't giving up.
It is so hard when we aren't feeling good. I truly hope that you are able to feel better. You should be having more good days than bad ones. I would keep advocating for myself as you are and keep a steady pace at trying to get better. There are bumps in the road, don't get me wrong, but as long as we are moving forward, we are making progress. One day at a time, keep your chin up.
