You’ve been struggling for a long time pretending you’re ok. Everything seems to be out of control. Your moods are all over the place & you’re losing it almost daily. You worry about everything and panic all the time. The worst is that your relationships are falling apart because of your behavior. You just want to be loved & you don’t understand why relationships only bring you pain.
You tell yourself, “This isn’t supposed to happen. I’m at the top of my game and I can’t break down. What will people think?”
The thought of finding a therapist and going to counseling makes you feel sick. You're afraid you'll be dismissed, told you’re overreacting, or worse, being asked, “what on Earth do you have to be so upset about?” It’s so hard to trust people…
You want a therapist who “gets it”; someone who isn’t silently judging you… Someone who helps you feel not so crazy.
