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

Many mental illnesses can cause similar behaviour.
Sociopaths, narcissist, anti social personality disorder, bipolar extremes, depression, schizophrenia and many others can all exhibit the same behaviours.
