Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
I am glad you wrote.
Sometimes, during traumatic events, people's minds split off and form a new consciousness. The mind does this to protect the person from knowing about the trauma.
It's a protective mechanism for the person experiencing trauma - so they don't have to consciously experience it.
It's a helpful mechanism in the beginning, but after a while, when the person doesn't need it anymore, and it's still working, it's unhelpful - as you are now experiencing.
I hope this helps! Do let me know if you have further questions.
She can go away with treatment.
You said you are in therapy? With a Psychologist? Or ... ?
Yes, it sounds that way.
Do you want me to help you find someone?
Just send me your city and a few other nearby cities, your State, male/female preferences and if you self-pay or use insurance.
It will take me a few hours to find someone, but I will get back with you today.
You were right. You don't have a lot of options. But one you do have, is to request another counselor at Family Health Care Services. There aren't outpatient therapists in your area who take SS or SSD who are in private practice. The only place listed was FHCS.
