I'm having a bit of difficulty with this atm. One of the psych nurses there is totally trampling all over my boundaries atm. Her reasoning is "You're too depressed to know what's good for you right now - I know what's good for you and you don't."The important thing to remember is that they work for YOU!! I was a caregiver before I became a nurse, and I worked in an young adult house. It was the rule that it was their house and we worked for them. We didn't try to tell them what to do, we asked. It was hopefully empowering to them. I wish you the best on this.
Do you have the option of talking to your doctor? Sometimes they are the best judge of what we can and can’t do, and they’re usually in the best position to make it clear to staff what you will and won’t be participating in.some of which I don't want to do, some of which I know have a detrimental effect and some of which are currently not an option, for reasons she doesn't know about.
So….I think maybe she spoke to a colleague of hers, who is also weird. She's got this mindset that people "shouldn't be" doing therapy long term, no matter "how bad their childhoods were". So anyone doing therapy for more than 2 - 3 years is "wasting the therapist's time".
