Disconnected

I have been suffering mentally and emotionally again recently.

I have decided to finally go and see a professional therapist.

I know what the problems are, but I don't know how to fix them. The thing is that I don't think my issues can be fixed by therapy, I think that the most that can happen is that I will learn coping skills.

How do you fill the void. You cant. That everlasting sense of loneliness, isolation and sometimes bitterness.

I'm sorry to hear that you are suffering.

Coping can be very useful in helping you get through the day. Maybe the problems cannot be fixed, or they may take a long time to fix, but coping skills can help you now. Take what the therapy can give you and believe that things can get better.

There are people that care.

Therapy, with the right professional can be a very very good source of comfort, reflection and support. Remember to look at what is causing you stress and how you can change it, even if it means making changes now instead of later.

Bes wishes.

Keep me posted - if you decide to try counselling, I'd like to hear how it's working for you. It's something I've often thought about doing but the expense has made me think twice. I am not sure how open and honest I can be in that situation. Until I started keeping an online journal, that was the path I was going to try. However, I have personally found that just purging the pain in writing and putting it out there for anyone and everyone to see has been a surprisingly good form of therapy all by itself. Good luck :)

Jerry,

Thank you for your thoughtful comments as always.

Frugal trenchester - nice to see you here, thanks for your comments

Moneyblogga - I will keep you posted. I am looking into it but I want to get the therapy right and get the right person, yes it is expensive you are right. I tried it on the NHS but its a joke, i didnt feel comfortable and you only get a half hour appointment each time.
