DBT making me miserable

Posted by crushedout on May 28, 2004, at 19:04:18

I've been trying somewhat reluctantly to do DBT with my T. I was pleased when she first suggested it because the idea was that we would have an extra session to do it, but that hasn't happened. Instead she just takes over parts of my already-way-too-precious two sessions to do it and I don't even understand what it is we're doing but I also don't want to ask because then we'll just spend more time on it and I'll get more frustrated and upset when there's stuff going on in my life I want to have time to talk to her about. I've explained this to her. But she says that if an organization spends all of its time putting out fires and never plans for the future so that the fires don't start to begin with, then, well, the organization will just spend all of its time putting out fires. That makes sense, but if you have fires going, you gotta put them out and add extra time for the planning if you ask me.

She's given me the diary card to fill out every day but I hate the skills and don't get what they are and can't do them anyway so it just makes me feel like a failure.

I'm so frustrated I want to cry.
