I told him some of it, but then he sais i was tensing up so she told me i should stop
How much were you able to tell him and what did he have to say?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Just the stuff with my brother and my brothers friend. He said that its normal to blame myself. That maybe im not ready to talk about it. And that i shouldny push myself
were you getting to the point where it was just too hard to keep talking about it?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Kind of. And then i felt like a loser for not being able to finish
Did you actually "break down" as in cry or yell or act really upset?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
No i just kind of shut down
OK First off, I'm very proud of you for doing this. I know it was hard as hell. Second, you've just confirmed what I've though all along--this therapist just isn't competent at all for helping you with this.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
He isnt too keen on me seeing a mayo psychiatrist. He asked my why i cant just share the info with my curret paychiatrist
Btw since i have a uti do i still need to see urology
I won't ever change my mind about the urologist. You're current psychiatrist would be fine IF she'd work with you.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Do i wait until my utis
Gone before i ask for a referral
Sorry--had to be off. No you should make the referral now since it may take some time to be seen
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I talked to the NP and she wont do it until im off the antibiotic and do another ua
Can we please the bladder thing for a while then? She obviously isn't clinically competent to evaluate this
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
we can change the topic. I just wanted you to know that I DID ask for a urology referral
I understand but you didn't give me the whole story, as is sometimes usual. So how are you feeling after today's therapy session?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
What didnt i tell you the whole story about? I feel angry at myself for not finishing everything. I dint feel any differently
You didn't start off with what the NP said so it sounded like you were trying to get me to say that if the blood cleared you wouldn't need to see the urologist. But at least now you don't feel any worse for talking about thouse things? And the therapist shouldn't have suggested you stop
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
If there is blood in my urine again she said shed ask one of the drs what the next step is but anyways. The thought of doing a stupid thing has been in my mind. I shouldnt have been a loser and stopped
But those are old thoughts At least don't you feel a little relieved that you've started talking?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
No i feel like a complete loser. And i told my therapist that too
Well, I think you are a little relieved and what did your therapist say to your calling yourself a loser?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
He says im not a loser and that its a common feeling
Of course you didn't believe him I suppose?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Nope. And i told him i had plans on telling him everything and then i fail and dont do it
Your a very hard case--you don't want to give yourself one iota of credit when credit's due. You did it!! You started talking about it!! So what if you didn't finish? There'll be another day. But I don't agree at all with his suggesting you should stop
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
No so what I failed
it had to be perfect--it had to go exactly the way you planned it to? And stop ignoring what I said--anyone but you would say that you did very well
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
it had to go perfect. If it didnt go perfect today what are the odds of it going perfect when i see the mayo dr
Nothing we do is ever perfect--it would be a very boring life if we could be perfect. The important point is you took the first step today. The journey's just begun
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Itwasnt even a full step. I screwed up, you can tell me that
No you didn't screw up and I'm not going to tell you that you did. Stop playing the old poor, poor, me tape
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Im just telling you howi feel
I'm telling you what I think. Do it this way--and I know it sounds silly--look into your eyes in the mirror and say I'm not a loser and I was very brave today with what I did and I really want to get well. You need to do that on a regular several times a day basis. I know, sounds like mumbo jumbo but we need to work on rebooting your brain a little.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
That really hard to do
No it really isn't--it should be easier than talking to someone else about these things
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I guess you are right
Give it a try--but you have to do it more than just once
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I will
again, kudos from me for what you did today. Anything else tonight?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Why do i feel like doing something dumb
Because you're sitting there repeating that old mantra "i'm a loser." Get up right now and go to a mirror and say what I told you over and over again for about two minutes and then get back to me
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Are you mad at me
No--I just don't get why you ask me that all the time?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I did it. It made me cry
That's because you are arguing against your old tape about being a loser. You need to do it several times each time you try--even if it's through the tears
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I dont like crying
Just follow instructions please
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Fine
I'm trying to keep you from doing something dumb
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
I told my therapist about wanting to do it. And all he said was why. And i told him idk. And that was all.
Seriously--he just isn't doing anything at all for you and probably hasn't all along
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Atleast i did try to reach out
again I'm very proud of you. I think he should consider another line of work.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Thats not very nice. I dont know that i feel 100% safe tonight
Just saying he doesn't seem to know how to deal with a fairly common emotional problem. I can stay with you a bit and talk, but you know where exactly we can't go
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Did you know i would feel like this after "sharing" my past
You really aren't feeling much different from the way you usually feel about that. I think right now you just haven't had the time for it to sink in that you did something very positive today and got over a hump you've been avoiding up to now.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
It just feels worse. But it doesnt matter because we cant talk about it anyways. I dont think my therapist took me seriously when i told him what was thinking
Maybe not. But telling someone else that you think you're a loser and having them say no your not is not something that should really make you feel worse. And, no, I'm not saying I know exactly how you feel but I don't think tonight is one night you can't get through and start over in the morning.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Idk. Tonight is really tough. Today was really tough. I am emotionally/physically exhausted
go to bed and get some sleep if you're that exhausted

I don't know but give him a call anyway

What would you do
If you were my therapist and i called you
Where are we going here--are you afraid he'll commit you?
Ask Your Own Health Question
You don't have to specifically talk about that--just tell him you're struggling with getting the thoughts and feelings about what you told him out of your head
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
He said its hard to help me over the phone. Said i have to number to the er and crisis center and that i have an appt to see him next week
Well, at least you made the call. I'm not sure what I can do to get the thoughts out of your mind but you've been through this before and it does get better in time

All I can say is if it's that bad you need the crisis center

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
