Kicked out of program - looking to chat

I really need to talk.

I just got a letter saying I am being kicked out of group therapy and losing all support of a program I have been in for a number of years now.

It is one of those “get out, here are other resources” letter that means they just want you GONE.

This is the place that allowed sexual harassment to continue to occur for months. This is why I wasn’t going much.

I am now in “lockdown” mode in my mind as my thoughts are off the charts at times and I just need HELP.

I know this is a kiss off letter because they recommended DBT for me. DBT does not help me. I need something for the THOUGHTS. This is more OCD realm and I’m just TIRED of getting the kiss off.

This is a program that has helped me in other ways, too. It is a devastating loss to say the least.

I cannot call them for 6 more hours.

Any kind of chat is fine.

Thank you.

This doesn’t sound like a healthy place though….

Would it help you to write / describe what it is thinking right now? Or what your fears are? Im just listening, if it helps you.
 
Mod Note:
@EveHarrington - I’ve changed the title of the thread, to avoid any confusion, as MyPTSD isn’t a crisis-support forum. I’ve also moved the thread into the Therapy forum based on the subject matter.

If you (or anyone else) are looking to just have a social chat about anything else, you’re welcome to use the permanent & pre-existing Social Chat thread.

Should I just leave and not talk? I am confused. Thank you.

Edit. I just wanted to talk to someone. I did not mean to break the rules. I apologize.

It’s totally fine! If you want to have a chat with members specifically about your experience with this therapy program, you can continue to do that right here in this thread. Alternatively, if you want to just chat with members socially about anything and everything, you can use the existing chat thread in the Social forum.
 
There are medicines available for OCD. Are you seeing a therapist? The therapy group sounds questionable, especially if it allows sexual harassment to occur. Have you researched strategies on the internet to help manage the OCD? Many good resources are available. Please share what you are dealing with specifically and I will try to help you.

I tried to socially chat in the past and was ignored, which is why I don’t use that thread anymore. I think people just want to chat with certain people and if you aren’t “in” the group then you aren’t really welcome. Or maybe it’s just me and people don’t want to chat socially with me.
