My therapist is out on strike.


My therapist has been out on strike since August and I feel like I'm going back to square one when I first started therapy.
I used to talk to her once or twice a month but now I can't. I can feel myself slipping back into my suicidal thoughts. Which I haven't had for a while and I'm doing my best to stay in my right mind but it is getting to me. I was supposed to have been getting ready for my childhood therapy but now not sure I'm ready.


So my therapist is out on strike and I haven't been able to contact them since August. It is starting to get to me and I can tell I'm falling back into my suicidal thoughts which haven't been a thing in a while. I was supposed to have been starting my childhood trama treatment. Now I'm just back at square one and don't know what to do.


I'm sorry to hear this news @Miyu38. Hopefully engaging here, on the social threads, can keep you distracted in a healthy way until the strike ends. Also, there is a member's diary where you can journal to help get your thoughts out.


Welcome to the forum @Miyu38 !

I've merged your 2 threads regarding your T being on strike.

I think what @MrMoonlight may have meant is that you could consider starting a Trauma Diary to help process issues while your T is unavailable. An option to think about:)
