Struggling With Feelings And ThoughtsFri, Nov 4th 2005
I have been in therapy for about 2 months I feel still though that I am still struggling with my feeling and thoughts. Each week I go to talk and I always have a new problem in my life to deal with but I never am just happy? I'm starting to even feel like a burden to everyone cause I just can't get it together. I don't even really feel like going to talk cause I just feel like I fail at this too. Sometimes when I'm really upset I feel like I need something more to help me calm down while other times more so now I just feel a bit numb like I don't care either way cause its all to much. What else can I say or do to help myself I'm at the point to even tell my social worker that there is no point in trying at this. Too many topics that are a mess in my life to fix I hate feeling this way Is there anything else I can do?
