My therapist is too good at her job lol

I had a bit of a rough session on Monday and afterward I sent my theraapist a follow-up email explaining that there were some things I hadn't told her about and also that I don't really want to talk about them, I just wanted to explain that those things likely had an impack on why I reacted the way I did. But because I'm me I added at the end of my email "I really want to add that I'm fine, somehow I feel like you probably won't believe/agree with that. But like really I'm fine:) " AND THIS LADY responded with "I know you are "fine." AND it sounds like there are other feelings you have too that maybe we can talk through next session?"

Like ma'am, why is fine IN QUOTATION MARKS?! That's just rude 😂 Has my world completely changed in the last month? Yes. Am I overwhlemed and occassionally very passively suicidal? Yes. Have I had multiple selfharm relapses recently? Also yes. But those are all totally besides the point. It's fine. I'm fine. Everything is FINE. She doesn't seem convienced tho and I'm offended (said scarstically).

Like why do we have to go and bring emotions into the conversation? Those things can get stuffed into a box and shoved in a corner where they belong.

I can not do today. I have been struggling for weeks, but I keep pushing and shoving myself to keep going. I know the signs that I'm hurting, but "I'm doing so much better now" so I don't feel like I'm allowed to go backwards...I can't stay in bed anymore. I have come too far. I called out of work today because I literally couldn't pull myself out of bed. I can. I know I can, but today was too much. My head hurts from medication withdrawal because my shipment from the pharmacy is delayed and the migraine is making me feel sick. I feel hopeless and defeated, but still feel overwhelming guilty for taking time from work to try to take care of myself... if I had a stomach bug or the flu I wouldn't feel like boss never answered me. Never responded. Now I'm terrified for my job on top of it and I feel guilty, but still can't get out of bed.

Everyone will abandon you.

They can't stand you.
They always talk about you
Nobody truly loves you.

Tears streaming down.

We all struggle with something.
You are not alone.
That horrible voice in your head…
Don't let it win.
You are worth it.
You are priceless
You are not alone.
You get one life,
Live it. Fight for it. Love it.

...... when ???

I am so fed up of hearing myself explaining or talking about what I'm feeling or going through , im sick of it ,
So surely everyone else must be sick of it too?
So surely It's better to just say im ok or fine than the truth ??
Surely they don't care or want to hear it all?
I mean they can't actually help ??

I am so fed up of all these thoughts and feelings ontop of my usual daily crap I have to endure....
Its extremely hard to realise each day is a blessing when all I am feeling is hurt alone, and frustrated!

What helps you with Intrusive/Recurring Thoughts?

Mental Health Tip: Mindful Thought - Plane Intrusive Thought?

Imagine that your mind is the sky and your thought, feeling, sensation, or emotion in that moment — is a plane.

Notice each plane when it passes, let it fly by. Focus on what’s ahead of you. Watch each plane without chasing it’s direction, let it drift out of your head...
