My therapist fell asleep during our last session. I canceled the next session as I’m losing faith that it’s even helping my debilitating depression from being UE for 3 months in the worst city NY in the worst season winter. I know others have it worse off than me, but I’m past being disappointed at rejection emails and fake recruitment.

My heart hurts for you during this tough season of life. I’ve been there, multiple times. The only advice I can offer base on experience is to give yourself as much grace as possible. Spend this uncertain time doing things that inspire you (I hit every free museum day and became an avid runner). You WILL look back on this time and be grateful for the strength you developed. I’m rooting for you

:( this has been a really tough year for so many people I know. It’s very hard to see the positive right now, I totally understand.

This happened to me once. At the least, address the issue with your therapist. I had similarly felt like my sessions weren’t helping and was so disappointed that I sought another therapist and saw so much success. Take care of yourself, don’t lose hope. There are people out there who genuinely care and it might take some time to find the right professional. DM me if you ever need to talk.

Do you live in the city? I know an amazing therapist! It makes such a difference. There’s so many bad therapists out there, you really have to try different ones until you find out you like. Hang in there! It’ll get better! Maybe you should try taking meds.

I started a new job recently and then had my PTSD seriously triggered, plus a panic attack. Felt so on edge and low on emotional resources for over a week that I wasn’t myself and apparently really rubbed a few people the wrong way so I was called in for a talking to 😣. I let people know there were some personal things going on, but didn’t mention the PTSD—very unsure if that’s something to share, or if I’d be judged for it or... I don’t even know. Has anyone else dealt with PTSD and had it impact them at work, and how did you handle it?

They then said I should talk to my therapist about this. I didn’t want to look defensive and say I don’t see a therapist, but I am regretting not speaking up.
