Issues-May Trigger

TRIGGER Don't read of you are sensitive.

My family and friends are becoming concerned about my mental health and the instability that is going on. I know they are but I also know my treatment plan isn't working. It is ineffective. It is due to the therapist is not helping and we have so many infrequent sessions to actually work on the problem. So, they suggested I go into treatment center then when well enough to live in specialized unit that fits my needs. The programs aren't local it is far north and none of my family is going to like it. Here is the trigger I think about SIV frequently out of frustrations at things going on in my life that makes me want to do it.

I try all the stop its but none is really working. Oh well. I really don't know what pdoc is going to do after I tell her what the family says. I am planning on dumping the therapist for the time being unless things change.

We'll see what the pdoc comes up with for treatment.

Hey Sweet heart, You do what you think needs to be done. Ask your pdoc or family Dr. for a referral to a good Tdoc. A good Tdoc can make all the difference. Stay strong honey. muahs
You may go through life hearing a 1000 NO's but don't give up because your YES is out there waiting for you.- (Something my father told me.)

I may have found a better place for counseling if I don't get placement. Might use them for temporary purpose. I feel my meds are not working. its ineffective. and tipping to the manic side. Lovely. I just hope it doesn't go full blown one. My cards are all cut up so can't use them.
