I am not going to be able to see my therapist much longer. There is a cap on the number of times he can see me. This has been a stronger blow than i can take. He was the only thing keeping me trying.

i look normal. i look like i actually enjoy life. i do "normal" things every day. I pass for normal.

what people don't see is the tornado inside... they don't see that inside i am full of chaos and pain. i feel like screaming all the time.

but i don't. i look normal.

even when the bipolar is on the flip side and I am up... i feel dizzy and my thoughts/feelings are out of control.

i see my psychiatrist on thursday, if he has no better solution for me then i am done.
well, there are a couple of reasons... the first being money. This therapist is free for me through my university... which is why there is a cap. The second being me.. it is so very hard for me to let my guard down and connect with someone. I had an instant connection with this guy. I feel very very comfortable with him and i trust him. That is not easy at all for me. Having connected with this guy it's almost like breaking up.. even though it's not that kind of relationship. Make sense?

when i started with this T I was in a major crisis in my marriage... i still am to a degree, but I am not as openly vulnerable as I was.. so in essense this T had a chance to avoid being shut out.

if i was able to allow myself to trust people i wouldn't be in therapy... so it's a catch22

thanks for answering

äyes yes, it's not easy to trust people . .
i've done so many times and got betrayed . . well nuff bout me.

Find someone or "something" that you can trust to start off with . .
buy a pet?? a dog or if you were me . .buy a snake!!^^
then maybe slowly you'll get back on your way . .
no person in the world could live without trusting others.

and think about this, if your therapist really cares . .
he/she would still talk to you personally and not coz it's his/her job.
if not, a good friend is always better than a therapist.
believe me . .
like us here . hahahaah XDXDXD

Hey, you replied in my thread. :smile:

I don't see why we need therapists, though. Is it the face-to-face social encounter because I've heard some stories and well, therapists don't really know more than we do. They can read words from a medical dictionary coordinating your symptoms to text but really, SuicideForum is all we need. We have been through much more collectively than a doctor with a book and accessory glasses. :laugh:

That's a good point. Not to say it's a bad idea to go to therapists but can they relate to your problems just because they've studied a similar case in the past?
I think you need the support of people who suffer or have suffered as well as knowing the clinical side of what is wrong.

Well looking normal is half the battle. I know I look normal so know one knows but the people who read this text.

Maybe you can try writing down your feelings? Like come here and yell or get an online blog and yell...

I also feel very connected to my therapist. I used to see her every week, then twice a month, and now it's once a month. This is because I've gotten better.

If you explain to him that cutting down your time may make you do something stupid, then do so. If it gets worse, later you will regret it if you don't.

A true friend beats a therapist anyday . . -_-
and this is a fact, don't go off and find ppl who care . . instead
be yourself and eventually people will get to like who you are . .
friends cannot be found, they find you . . .^^
a therapist... at least a good one isn't trying to compare your case to another. And there are different types of therapy. Right now I am in cognitive therapy. It's about trying to change the pattern of thoughts, trying to rewire my head i guess. He listens to me talk about what is going on and how i feel, and he points out the things that don't add up or the holes in my logic. He asks me tough questions that push my ability to answer... it puts me on the spot.

i have two dogs. i trust them easily. It's people i don't trust. There is something about me... something that doesn't work right when i try to form relationships with people...friend or otherwise.

none of that matters. i'm just waiting to talk to my pdoc tomorrow.

ooooooh, ok . . .
at least you have someone you can trust!!^^ that's important . .
Yes i know, these days, a really loyal friend is hard to find . .
But sooner or later, you'll find one, or more . hehe^^

There are people near you which you don't realize that care for you . .
as for your therapy . . well good luck, but don't go suicidal if you don't get therapy . .

good luck once again . . and a big big big big big . . HUUUUUUUUUUUG!!^^
