This sounds splendid. Can I just use your answer?!?A back rub and some tea with a good friend who understands me. Maybe a bouquet of flowers. Warm milk and fresh out of the oven cookies. A call from someone who I thought had rejected me.
I hear you! Sometimes I just end up laughing at the most silly things, because I just need to laugh.I need laughter!! Just the silly kind that one thing makes you laugh and then it sort of takes on a life of its own. Just bouncing silliness off of others and it comes back with more laughter. I'm so sick of everything being so serious all the time.
Well, I'm not your therapist, but I can assure you that you didn't disclose too much. Is that even possible? I'd always prefer to have every thing right out in the open. It's easier to work with it that way.Count me in!
But seriously, I’ll give this one a go.
I’m feeling exposed and insecure. I feel I may have disclosed too much in therapy today. I feel I might get punished or shamed somehow.
So, I think I need reassurance. Someone to tell me that what I did wasn’t wrong. That it was okay for me to disclose those things. I’m also feeling a bit ashamed of myself. Unsure of whether my T still likes me and wants to work with me. So I need her to somehow express to me, the next time we meet, that she thinks I’m okay and that I haven’t humiliated myself.
Basically, I guess I need some expressions of affection and acceptance.
I've been working 5 months on stopping prescribed benzos. It can be hard as heck to get off meds or change them. You have accomplished a monumental task! Way to go!I need someone to validate that I quit 6 years of MS Contin (morphine) cold turkey and that the Suboxone that I ended up having to take because of lasting side effects is not the same stuff. My household didn't say anything, even though I was really sick and it was really HARD!
yes please!!!Like grief, fear, catastrophizing, WhatIF, woulda/coulda/shoulda, depression, anxiety attacks, panic attacks, future tripping, zoning out, etc. <waves hand around vaguely> So in addition to some justifiable anger? I also need to keep a weather eye on bullshit emotions & thought processes... because it would be very very easy to lose my Center... if I am so focused on the big flashy emotion, that I miss smaller ones starting to spin out of control.
