I'm SO pissed off at my mental health nurse. - November 26th 2012, 04:40 PM

Omfg. A few months ago I had been considering making my own soap and selling it. My mental health nurse arranged an appointment for me to see this woman in a craft fair with her about it on Wednesday.

I don't really want to do it anymore, I don't enjoy it anymore and my confidence still sucks.

My dad phoned her this afternoon (I tried but couldn't get hold of her) and told her it wasn't suitable for me anymore and I may find it too difficult. She said that was the point She wanted me to fail for me to realise how hard it would be. Ummmm... how the fuck would that be helping my confidence? Are you mental?

I'm so pissed off. Surely this isn't ethical

Hey Ceilidh, this doesn't strike me as unethical although she certainly could've worded it a little more gently. Sometimes working through these things has to be uncomfortable for you to make progress. I can't say for sure what her goal was, but it sounds like she was trying to get you to work through your discomfort.
