New, would anyone care to talk to me?

Posted by Surely on January 18, 2005, at 19:48:35

I just joined, and the people in the Newbee group, suggested that I go to the psychology group. I just need a kind person to talk to, so would anyone care to talk to me?

Hi Surely,

I'm glad you found your way here. It's a great place. Everyone is really supportive and I've gained so much strength from all these wonderful souls.

Please tell what's on your mind. We're listening.

Hello, Surely, and welcome.

As I guess you've noticed by now, Babble has an absolute ton of boards and can be more than a bit confusing, but there are lots of nice interesting people, and I've found it to be a place to find support and companionship. The Social board is a particularly good place for that since the topics of conversation are really wide ranging. Dr. Bob monitors the other boards to make sure they stay more or less on topic.

I saw your post on the Newbie board. It must be very frustrating to have such limited access to services. I know I'm very fortunate to live in an area with a lot of therapists of various sorts, though we certainly aren't cutting edge in my area of the country. Are you from the US? (I ask because there are many here who aren't.) There are a fair number of good self help books, although that's not the same thing at all as therapy. I think I saw you mentioned anxiety. Have you seen "The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook" ? My therapist used it with me, and it did a reasonably good job of bringing my OCD under control.

 

I am worried you got lost trying to find this agai (nm)

Rain, how cool that you are here. i wrote a big long introduction, and just as I was clicking on confirm, I lost my internet connection, so I don't know if it posted or not. I went to the Scocial group, and discovered as I was about to post that there was a dropdown menue, and at the bottom of it, there was the psychology group.

I can't get to a shrink, the nearest one is over 50 miles away, and I have no transportation.

I just need to know that there are people to whom I can talk, who have been, or who are going through what I'm going through. I just need to hear that somehow, I can get through this.

No, I have not seen that book. I think my anxiety and depression are the result of having surgery. I'm a craven coward. Strange as it may seem, the cancer doesn't frighten me, but the pain I suffer each time i have surgery is almost more than I can bear. I cannot tolerate drugs, so Demerol is out, and Morphine dose not stop my pain, but it messes badly with my psychological problems. So I guess I live in fear that I will have to have surgery again. I've already had 5 major surgeries, and 6 minor ones. Yeah, I'm a coward.

I am from Minnesota, USA

There is no such thing as e-therapy. Shrinks have this dogma where they believe they have to watch you squirm while you talk, or they cannot treat you. Until such a time as some forward thinking psychiatrist decides that it might be a good idea, our only recourse is group support.

I feel better, now that I am here, but I think I read in one of the posts, that I should probably be in Scocial. I have no idea where I should be, and that hurts. But otherwise, I'm better.

you can go to social or psychology if you post the wrong topic it will just get redirected and a link will be put there for you. don't worry about it, you are fine here. i bounce from students to psychology to social....look through some of the posts and see what people are writing. check out the link in alexandra's post on e-therapy...it looks promising.

I am not even going to ask where I can find it. LOL. After all of the fumbling about I did looking for this group, I think I will just take my time about finding other things. It's actually kinda funny now, but it was stressful at the time.
