It’s totally normal to feel how you are feeling. And I had that for a long time. And im sure it will come back after I develop a relationship with my new therapist.
When my therapist told me at the end of last year that she’s having a baby and I won’t have any more scheduled sessions, I was crying for nights. It was really hard. I knew I was g…Read More
I actually started with a new therapist since my therapist is going on maternity leave. We only had a few sessions so far but it’s going good. She mainly helps me on my OCD and anxiety but I’m going to try to talk to her about other stuff as well. I definitely miss my other therapist and I have a virtual appointment with her coming up,…Read More
Oh I totally hear that. It makes sense that you don’t want to be identified on this platform right now it.
About wanting to work on a compulsion but scared of it coming true, yes it’s very hard. That’s exactly what the ocd thought does unfortunately. I’m not sure what would help on that one. I’m about to start ERP, and a little nervous ho…Read More
I understand what your saying. I actually am about to start ERP and I hear what your saying. When my therapist explained to me what it is, I also got extremely scared- worrying that doing it is gonna make the thing come true. She told me that it is hard, but I can always choose not to work on a specific one if I don’t want to. I think y…Read More
I feel like you took the words out of my mouth. I literally feel the exact same way about my therapist. One week she wasn’t there, and I found myself crying. I as well feel so dependent on my therapist. (And now that we have no more scheduled sessions (because it went through the school year as I went in school) it’s even harder because I just…Read More
these are all so so relatable and I feel so much less alone! Wow.
… You wrote down a whole list of things to discuss and then in session are too into one topic to go through half the things
…You wait all week for your session and then when it’s over you want to go back and wait all over again
…You keep checking your texts to see if your therapi…Read More
<p class=”p2″><span class=”s2″>My therapist is pregnant. She’s not going to be working next year (as I go to therapist in school she’s not going to be working there next year, but still in her office) this has been extremely hard for me in every area. (We are having virtual now that schools over) But besides for that, I have ocd and my parents hav…Read More
I totally understand you. I don’t have a lot of tips but what I can say is that you amazing. Amazing for getting through every day. Every day is a struggle with OCD and having to deal with it and going through the day is something you should be proud of. You are strong. It takes so much inner work and strength to deal with ocd. It’s so so har…Read More
mlove replied to the topic Feeling of loneliness and sadness after leaving therapy session… in the forum Something else? Post here!
same as well!! Thank you
@Hope, I understand you and used to go through the same thing. Lately I’ve been very tired so I just fall asleep right away. But when I do have a hard time sleeping, it’s very stressful for me to think about how tired I will be the next day. So instead, I just accept. And accept the fact that right now I’m having a hard time sleeping but I’m p…Read More
@helpfulgal I totally get you. I struggle with the same thing. Just to add something else that helped me, my therapist worked with me on identifying what is most likely to happen, and what’s the worst that can happen so when I made a list of what is most likely to happen, it totally didn’t relate to what was the worst that can happen. Just som…Read More
