Topic: Counseling starts next week...
I've been having such a hard time lately dealing with the passing of my dad. It feels like the first two weeks were my "numb time" and now its really kicking in. I can't sleep for my life, my mind is just keeping me awake, even if i take sleeping medicine, i can't get to sleep. I was actually able to sleep last night, but my dreams were so wacky, similar to how you dream when you have a high fever, so it was not restless.
I'm hoping therapy will help me try to understand my own feelings and get through this time a little easier...it will at least give me someone to talk to that i won't stress out more (I know my pain/difficulty dealing with this is making things harder for my mom and husband).
I've been to counseling before when i was younger, but for different reasons. Are there certain things I should be talking about in the first appt? Should I make a list of my biggest concerns/things that are causing me the most anxiety to try and make the most of the appt?
Thanks to all of you for letting me get my thoughts out on virtual paper
I love you, Daddy.
