Anxious about meeting new tdoc on Thursday

I just found out today that I'm meeting my new therapist on Thursday but not the one I was originally assigned. Not sure what to think of this development at this point. Maybe it will be a good thing instead of the bad thing I'm anticipating it to be right now. I also started an exercise program today feeling sore and achy all over. I'm hoping this helps too. I could use positive thoughts and prayers. Thank you in advance!

Hi Wolf,

Why are you anticipating the session to be bad? Do you have a specific reason?

One thing that helps me is knowing that it's not like I will HAVE to stay with the tdoc if I don't like her. It's my choice. So I go to the first appt and letting that tdoc have a clean slate. If I like her and we connect, great - but if we don't, it's not the end of the world.

I think sometimes we make too much out of things. So maybe try not to give it so much power and know that it will be fine no matter if this tdoc ends up being someone you continue seeing or not. It's your choice.

Good luck!

I think part of the reason I'm anxious is that I've not had therapy in nearly two months. Thanks in part to insurance issues. I was really happy with my old therapist and had made alot of progress in my healing journey.

I also have had bad luck with therapist abandoning me just when we start making real progress together as team. I know I shouldn't judge my past experiences to new ones. But I've learned to be leery of the process because of it. I think I need to journal about this to ease my mind some.
