Hi Daisy,
Thanks for your support. :)
Yes, I've stop SI-ing for the moment. I know it's a coping skill too, but I wish I had one to replace it... It's late where I'm at (or late evening anyway) and I can't call my T right now. I don't even have a number to reach her at. I was supposed to see Burt (my pdoc) tomorrow, but I cancelled the appointment. Partly because I have school during that time, but mostly because of what he told my therapist. I don't know if you read the thread, but I recently started seeing a therapist, and he told me that I would also still be seeing him. Well, the new T said I was switching to her and would only be seeing Burt now for meds. It hurt my feelings and I felt abandoned. But, I'm over it now I guess. I don't like to admit it, but I kinda expected something like that to happen.
I talked to my therapist about how no one in my family supports my seeing her. They complain all the time about having to pay for it, and then make comments like, "It's not working anyway." All those words hurt to hear, especially on days when I feel like I've made progress. Like today. I know my OCD and other disorders don't have to be validated to be real, but I just wish people could understand. They just don't.
