Well, I've been going to her for 2 months now and I jsut can't open up to her at all.
i don't know why. She's very nice, and she specializes in abuse....Hell, it's at the womens shelter for cryin out loud. I just can't trust her to open up and I feel like I'm wasting her time and mine by even bothering her with my issues when I have a very capable psychologist i utilize weekly.
Anyhoot.....I told Dr. K that I would rather see him. I already trust him and there's really nothing that I feel I couldn't tell him. (almost anything - insert chuckle here) I asked him to up me to 2 sessions/week. He can't fit me in until late October, so I'm going to continue working wtih Amy until then. I could always cancel the double sessions if I want to.
The whole point to doubling up is (and I told him this too).....
One session to deal with my family dilemas, day to day anxiety, and SI....
The second session to deal with my past abuse and PTSD etc. and to focus completely on that.
The reason I need 2 sessions is because, by the time I'm done bitching about my family and my frustrations of day to day life that causes anxiety....There's no time to deal with the true issues that made me the way that I am.
Dr. K agreed and said we could definately do that.
I'm so relieved. With me having a BPD disorder, I was so afraid he was going to find me to be too clingy, needy etc. I was even a little embarassed to suggest it.
