Thanks for your thoughts. They make perfect sense, but I'm still really struggling. I know that I have to go into this thing (if I choose to do so) with absolutely NO expectations. I mean, the damage has been done. All they can do now is hear and see the consequences of their actions.
Since I am paying into this university system (a pretty penny I might add, private school) I know I can approach this from the standpoint of a disgruntled customer. A huge injustice has been done against me and other students. There has been discussion on Babble about the stigma of mental health patients. I have to allow for the possibility that if I go in there and educate them on the therapy relationship, they might be a little rattled. At least I can hope.
There is nothing worse than pain without meaning, and I guess what I'm trying to do is make this a little more meaningful. If I don't go, I know I will regret staying quiet. If I do go, well, there are risks. I just have to decide if it's worth it.
Yes, Mark, I do believe in prayer. Well, most of the time. I'm trying very hard to believe that this is part of God's plan, too. Is this my role in this plan? I wish I knew for sure. There must be a reason I'm here, in this situation, at this time. Am I here for such a time as this?
