counselling - November 12th 2010, 07:43 PM

i have recently been going to counselling but i feel really bad.
im finding it hard to trust (its not the counsellor because i really like her shes not too airy fairy)
im jsut not very communicative, shes tyring to encourage me to talk for myself and not jsut agree with her.

i really want to start talking about the abuse, ive told her about other stuff like my suicidal thoughts and i know talking with that helps. but i just cant open up about my abuse, and thats the whole reason im there.

also im struggling to apply the counselling when im there and jsut after i feel it helps. but during the week i revert right back to myself. and i feel so alone and scared all of the time.

sorry i know this doesnt really make sense in what answers i want, i jsut feel so useless like im annoying my counsellor.

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation
let the dream begin let your darker side give in
to the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night

I'm sure your not annoying your counselor. She probably knows that there is something that you arn't telling her, and so shes probably trying to make you feel more comfortable. I know how you feel however, having something that you need to get off your chest. The sooner you do, the sooner you will feel better, but speaking those words is easier said then done. If you want, you could try writing it down and then just handing her the piece of paper. This way you don't have to break the ice and say it, but you can still talk about it. Admiting what happened will the be hardest part, so don't worry. Once you get past that, you will feel so much better. Good luck!

And here you are living, despite it all.
