Unhappy

I think I’m beginning to realize that I have a love/hate relationship with therapy.  I did go to my session tonight even though everything within me wanted to say screw it, I don’t need this hassle in my life.

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions.  This is something I am totally unfamiliar with and because of that I am having a hard time dealing with what is going on inside of me.

This week I have certainly hated the so-called therapeutic process.  My brain is worn out from trying to figure it out.

I went into my session tonight highly anxious, not knowing what to expect – from her or from me.  I had written out some of the things that were rolling around in my mind about how I felt about taking the very unwanted break.  Three pages of writing to be exact.  It wasn’t a nasty letter or anything, it was mainly about how I was feeling.

So I handed her my notes with the comment that it would probably make her mad.  What happened next was rather surprising for me.  After she read it she said that I had made some valid points.  So we went through my notes point by point.  One of the points I made was about the way she told me about the break. I wasn’t part of the decision at all.  It was just dropped on me like a bombshell.  I had written that I thought it could have been handled better.

As she was reading the notes she made a star beside this particular point I made.  After she finished reading she went back to it and said that I was right. That she could have handled it better.  She said she felt humbled by what I said and apologized to me.

You could have blown me over with a feather.  I’m not sure what I expected but it really wasn’t that.

The break is still on and I’m still not happy about it.  In fact at this point I don’t agree with it.  In the next day or two I will post about the reasons for the break, as I understand it.  But from my side of the room I really still don’t understand it.

    Hey there – I’m glad you went and it sounds like your T validated your feelings. Looking forward to hearing more about the reasons for the break.

    Love-hate – gotta agree. Mine was completely foreign last night.

      Yes, I’m glad now I went as well. I can’t believe how incredibly hard this is. I’m sorry to hear that about your session. I have told my T on occasion that I wished she had a magic pill to give me and all would be well.

    Totally agree with love/hate. I’m glad she realized that she could have handled this better, but still sad for you that you must take an unwanted break. I can’t imagine how hard this must be for you.

      Thank you Harriet, I find this all so very weird. I’m hoping to come to terms with it sooner rather then later.

    I’m sorry it’s been so tough for you. Like the other two said, I’m glad she validated your feelings and admitted her own flaw in how she handled it … sounds like she’s been a good T for you.

    Hang in there 🙂

      She has been a good T and maybe that is one of the reasons I don’t feel ready yet. The only thing I know for sure is that I don’t like feeling like this.
