Possible new therapist

I got a return call last night from one of the therapists my old one recommended. I’ve got an appointment on the 18th. I could have gotten in sooner, but can’t afford it till then. I’m feeling a tad better just having a session scheduled. I’m also resenting the fact that I need to go back, when I had been doing so well and had “graduated” to per diem only. Guess this time in my life constitutues an as needed session. Ah, life. At least I know to pick up the tools when I need them. Just wish I didn’t need them.

Hopefully things are looking up, on my part at least.

  1. Going back to therapy isn’t a step back, it’s a step sideways if it’s anything. Everybody needs help sometimes, and it’s the bigger and better person who recognizes when he needs some.

    I know, I just hate that I have to spend the money on it again through no fault of my own. Ok, sure I have a part, like not pushing for things to be taken care of when I was in therapy the first time. I’m just pissed that here I go again not being able to use money on anything fun because I’m stuck getting my head shrunk again.

  3. That’s one way to look at it, but think about how much sweeter the fun will be when things are more settled again. Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight, like the song says.

  4. Or you can think about how awesome it is that you are a person who can “graduate” and will again soon hopefully. I agree with Steve, going back to therapy isn’t a step backwards, it’s just another step in your life. I know it is frustrating to having to be spending “fun” money on something that takes so much work, but really it’s just money. I’d rather have my sanity than material things any day of the week.

    That’s a really good point, Katrin. I’m not a materialistic kind of person, but I was getting wrapped up in not having the ability to buy a book when I want it. But it’s not important. Thanks for reminding me. 🙂

  6. Really, the best thing you can spend your money on is you right now. It’ll be worth it in the long run.

  7. Agree … if you ever want to chat – my email is becky dot lpc at gmail dot com.
