MBT Week 8: Individual Session
This week we mostly talked about how I’m feeling really hopeless and desperate at the moment. I really feel that I can’t cope and I don’t know how I’m going to get through the next four days until my next support appointment.
I don’t know that I left feeling any better but my therapist at least acknowledged how bad I’m feeling. She didn’t try to sweep my feelings under the carpet like a lot of professionals have in the past, and like my family always have.
Then a little later I had a phone call from my occupational therapist while standing in the shade opposite the bus station to try to get some privacy.
I didn’t really know what to say to her and I felt guilty. She was saying all these things to try to get me to feel better and none of it was working or giving me any hope at all. I feel like I’m a waste of everybody’s time.
