    Session was very triggering today

    Yes you hit the nail right on the head. This is exactly what’s going on for me. These are good ideas.. I think I will send her an email… and then refer to it in session in case she doesn’t see it before.

    Session was very triggering today

    You’re all so right, the call was really not important, which I know because I heard her side of the conversation. But me, being me, will not be able to bring any of this up 😞

    Session was very triggering today

    Honestly it did not seem like anything remotely urgent. So she probably shouldn’t have taken the call. But I can deal with that. The “I love you” triggered me so much, and I guess I wish she would have realized that on her own, instead of now having to go through the uncomfortable process of...

    Session was very triggering today

    I was crying to my therapist today how hard it is to feel so unloved and not have a mother figure. During the session she picked up the phone because her daughter needed something - not thrilled with that in general, but I don’t say anything… then before she hangs up, says “I love you too”...

    Therapist used to act more loving

    My therapist has touched my arm on occasion and once offered me a hug. However she hasn’t done either of those in months and it’s eating away at me. But I am terrified to bring it up to her. I also feel like if I ask for it, then if she does it it won’t be genuine.

    Dropped a bombshell unintentionally

    So I reached out to her for another session and I feel like a different person just having asked for it. Thanks for the encouragement and support.

    Dropped a bombshell unintentionally

    Without going into details, as I was walking out the door from my last session, my therapist mentioned something in passing which caused me to respond with a huge bombshell that was extremely traumatic for me. I ended up texting her later in the day and she responded but then never even read my...

    Need help with what I think are cognitive distortions

    It makes so much sense. Every time I think about it logically. But then the hurt feelings creep back in. It’s a constant battle. Exacerbated by the self harm that I’m trying to fight.

    Need help with what I think are cognitive distortions

    Yes it’s definitely about a fear of abandonment. No doubt about that.

    Need help with what I think are cognitive distortions

    I don’t feel comfortable emailing about my hurt feelings, but I will try to bring them up at our next session. I am pushing through and emailing about my pain in general which so far today has been helping and I haven’t self harmed. I feel hurt because she told me I can text if I need help. In...

    Need help with what I think are cognitive distortions

    I’m new here and not so sure what forum to put things under. So hope I’m in the right place. Another poster suggested I post here. I’ve been struggling a lot since my last therapy session. Next one isn’t for another few days. Reached out to therapist but no response. I feel hurt. I’ve been...

    Therapist hasn’t responded to last few texts

    I do think she is purposely not responding. Maybe I’m wrong. Either way, I really like her as a therapist, and I don’t want my hurt to ruin the relationship that we have. If anyone has any idea how to help me with that, I’d really appreciate it.

    Therapist hasn’t responded to last few texts

    I’m just having a lot of flashbacks to past abandonment and rejection and it feels like too much really There’s eventually regret when I self harm but it’s too hard for me to carry this alone

    Therapist hasn’t responded to last few texts

    I see she read it. I’m not reaching out for a sooner appt. Honestly I’d rather just self harm than be this burden on her.

    Therapist hasn’t responded to last few texts

    I have found the crisis lines to be useless, in my personal experience. I don’t want to ask for a sooner session because for whatever reason she’s not even reading my texts. Can’t take the hurt of reaching out yet again.

    Next week doesn’t feel soon at all when I’m feeling this way.

    Therapist hasn’t responded to last few texts

    Next session is next week. I’m only contacting her as instructed. Not crossing boundaries. She said I can reach out for help. So I’m not sure why she’s not even reading them. This is a first.

    Therapist hasn’t responded to last few texts

    How long would be a reasonable time to wait before giving up and just feeling rejected :(

    Therapist hasn’t responded to last few texts

    Well I decided to try texting again - dumb of me I guess - because that one is still on unread too. I have no idea what’s going on.
