if she needs therapy that bad, better sooner than later.
Yeah, I know. She was in therapy for a while - and I thought she was still on medication. If she's still on medication it's obviously not working. And she had to switch insurance and couldn't see her therapist anymore. I don't think she ever found another one, which sucks, because I think it was helping some. If she's not in a good hospital, this might not do any good anyway. A few of them are useless, and a couple could be considered worse than useless. It's going to depend on where they had openings.
@Astica: I don't know what hospital she's in. If she's not out by tomorrow (people get out relatively fast a lot of the time, even if they shouldn't, due to our mental health system sucking), I'm going to get a hold of her Mom and find out.. but then her Mom will have to talk to her and get me added to the visit/call list, and I don't want to stress her Mom out worse than I'm sure she is.. which is why I'm waiting to see.
@Savannah: Thanks. <3. I think after this, I'm going to start trying really hard to be there for them again. The three of us used to all have a lot of depression issues; like needing serious therapy issues. But I've been getting that help for the past lord knows how many years and I've grown a lot.. and it's kind of distanced me from them, among other things. But I don't want them falling apart like this and me not being there and me not knowing why. It's awful.
@Captain: Haha, I know. But sometimes a temporary fix can be nice, until a more permanent one can be scrounged up.
@Miranda: Thanks. <3
@Indja: I agree with what Miranda said, definitely make a list.
Also, do you meditate or anything at all? Sometimes just sitting down and focusing on something not stressful (I chant, because I can't actually clear my mind or make it shut up) and focusing on having deep and even breaths can give you a little bit of space and rest and perspective..
If you don't like meditating maybe find time to do something that is a short task but one you find relaxing? Like making tea, orr.. something. I don't think you cook, do you? But just do something and focus on that and absolutely do not think about whatever is stressing you out. Focus all your attention on whatever you're doing and just be in the moment and breathe.
Make a list and then try to center yourself in the present and in the where you are right now instead of January or Christmas shopping.
-hugscuddleshugs- Shit is stressful. I really hope that things get turned around. <3
