Panic time with therapist…

So after spending forever choosing a therapist, I was growing increasingly paranoid he hadn’t replied for 2 weeks about our next session!!

I was having the most insane thoughts and images

He thinks I’m annoying so he’s ignoring me

He thinks I’m too fucked up to help

He thinks I fancy him so is avoiding

He’s a rude, arrogant, unprofessional wankstain and I will drive to his house and out spiders in his pillow cases

But then I remembered cbt and to rely on FACTS not emotions.

So thought

It’s been Xmas and he’s got 4 kids so prob busy

Maybe just turned work phone off for couple weeks break

So the old me would have:

Sent a ranting, angry, badly spelt email, dumping him as therapist and accusing him of misconduct and all kind of evil punishments 😉

New me, I calmly typed a nice polite email and I mentioned I was concerned and how it had made me feel ( you got to be honest with your therapist guys)

But it was all very grown up.

Yay me!

And he did reply so meeting next week

Xxx
