Seeing my psychologist

I see my psychologist tomorrow and I'm really anxious about it. 

It's been over a month since I last saw her and it's been a really full on month. Like I  had a psychotic episode, I attempted suicide, I spent some time in hospital, I had heart problems etc. 

I don't know how I'm going to talk about all that stuff especially my attempt.

hey @redhead
I think it is reasonable that you are feeling anxious about your appointment tomorrow.
Would writing it down help any? Smiley Happy

@Bee I don't know, I don't even know where to start

Re: Seeing my psychologist

@redhead That's okay, sometimes it happens.

For me, as I write emails before every session to my psychologist. I try to think about what I want to tell her or what she needs to know in order to help me. Sometimes I list them and then go into detail about each item on the list. Other times I just do a word vomit and get every tiny thing out of my head and see what I have to work with...

Re: Seeing my psychologist

@Bee I'm thinking about word vomiting maybe. There's stuff I really need to talk about and want help with.

Re: Seeing my psychologist

@redhead that sounds like a good start. I think given you know there are things you really need to talk about and want help with, maybe that is where you could start?

Re: Seeing my psychologist

Sometimes it's hard to figure out what to say when we have a lot to get off our chest, which can make us really anxious. It sounds like you have found a great place to start @redhead, let us know how you are travelling Smiley Happy
