Let’s call you brain fuzz and you will be my brain fuzz.

Evening ladies and gentlemen....... 

 

i have a question hope i can get some insight. Like I already know what has to happen but yeah. Ok so hears the low down. ...

So on the 21st of this month...
I kinda had a bad day. Don’t get me wrong it probably wasn’t that bad. But when I needed it it was not there. I guess I should probably start at the start. I had an appointment with my psychologist ( Mrs *) as I call her. But today it was like she just couldn’t or wouldn’t shut up. Ok maybe that is mean but I pay money to see her and for her to help me with my mental health issues. Not to sit and listen about her up coming holidays and her weekend this was the first time she has ever done that and I get it some days we are just off our game. ... Like I been having these thoughts disturbing thought well I think they are.. Now I’m kinda angry sad worried can I just say all of the above.. and I have been self harming again like Grrrrrrr I was doing really well…….

I guess you want to know these thoughts……..I’m sorry but i dont think this is the right place to get in to those details.

 

so any way like i have been looking for other services to help me but i dont know if i should go back to Mrs *

Hey @Eagle, definitely understand how frustrating it must be to have your practitioner speak about themselves instead of holding the space for you. As you mentioned everyone does have off days, it's good your weighing up both sides.

 

Before we go on, around the self-harm, do you need medical attention for this?

And do you plan on hurting yourself or anyone else?

 @Bree-ROI’m ok in that way it’s been one day......

i just don’t know if I’m overthinking and over reacting to it all like should I look for a different person. I really don’t want to start again like we all know how hard it is opening up. 

Re: Let’s call you brain fuzz and you will be my brain fuzz.

hey there @Eagle, Bree is unwell for the night so I'm just checking in. Glad to hear you are safe tonight

Definately rings true that too trust people and opening up takes a lot of energy to do with one person...

I don’t know what to do. What would you do. @Sally-RO

Re: Let’s call you brain fuzz and you will be my brain fuzz.

@Eagle that sounds pretty frustrating, i have had a similar experience. sometimes they make mistakes they are human after all. i would attend another session. When it happened to me straight off the bat at the next session i would say i havent been good and am struggling, thats usually a good indication you need to talk without sounding rude about not wanting to hear the psychs stories. would that work for you?

@scared01...

 ok then i will try that usually she like how your going and so on. But like i said before maybe she was just a tad excited about the holiday 

Re: Let’s call you brain fuzz and you will be my brain fuzz.

yeah @Eagle sometimes excotment gets the better of people but when you walk in if and she asked how your going make it a point that your not doing that well and it should help. if she starts talking about the holiday or going off topic maybe say that you need help with something, if it keeps happening then perhaps shes not the right therapist for you

Re: Let’s call you brain fuzz and you will be my brain fuzz.

@Eagle it sucks that she seemed more interested in her holiday than your own needs... rule 101 of psychology is that while it's fine to disclose things to clients, it needs to be for their benefit and not your own.

 

I like @scared01's suggestion of making it clear that you're struggling when you first walk in next session. If she's not able to keep the session on track then it might be time to look into someone else. What do you think?

Re: Let’s call you brain fuzz and you will be my brain fuzz.

Hey there @Eagle,

How are you going with this?
It sounds like a frustrating situation, have you spoken to your psychologist at all since this happened? I find when trying to make a tough decision like this, a pros and cons list is great in helping me weigh out whether or not a decision, such as changing psychs, is worth it. Does your psych usually talk a lot like the way she was before?

I hope you're having a good weekend Smiley Happy
