Lost feeling

I am having a hard time right now i just not liking this time of year and i feel like i am losing the only friend i got and I dont know how to stop thinking that as i would talk about it but shes thee only one I really talk to so its like i dont have anyone ti talk to about it and i just dont know how to go about these feelings and i feel lost with it. I have been talking to my dog about it and as you all know the dog cant talk about or say anything back to me but he is doing very well at licking my face clean of tears though. Why is it so hard for me to have friends i know i have brain problems but im still human like really what is wrong with me. I guess i just stuck with myself and my dog.

Even if it feels like there is no way out - the positive thing is that you are at the very least aware and able to identify how you’re feeling, if you’re in the position where you are stuck in a loop it just means that a change, any small change to your routine is necessary. I’ve been feeling this way for 2+ years and I know it feels very overwhelming but everything will work out. A therapist can help give better advice and insight I see one for 45 minutes once every week.

I have been like this for 5 years this January and they dont help as they dont the fact i have short term memory loss and i need to have stuff in writing or somehow a remember and they dont seem to get the fact i need to have it pointed out to me not me telling them what i need they need to help me do it not asking me how it can be done if that makes sense

I understand, I’ve been in therapy for over ten years, sometimes you need a new therapist. I’ve been through many therapists, only one or two have been really good therapists and the rest weren’t very good at helping. For now tell the therapist you have exactly what you said to me about how you feel, they can’t make any changes to help if you don’t be brutally honest about how bad you’re struggling.

If you have a shot at doing any group therapy those can also sometimes help.

No don’t apologize I’m really sorry that you’re going through that, if you have the time or energy- complaining to their superiors and asking for a change of therapist might help if the one you’re currently seeing is unresponsive it’s going to make you feel even worse. I’m so sorry, this must be very hard to experience right now especially if you aren’t feeling well already.

You don’t have to worry about me! That is very sweet and it is nice to have your support. I will get my therapy appointment tomorrow 11 a day earlier than usual. Therapy is difficult just in general, medications and psychiatrists are difficult too and not every therapist is understanding- so trying a new one can hopefully help solve that problem, I have felt how you feel and I have been in your position many times without knowing what to do, so I had hoped I could help you. Make sure you remember to tell the clinic that you need a change in therapist because you aren’t getting the help you need, I have benefited from my new therapist and I hope you do too.
