Letting My Cares Slip Away

Luna on her afternoon walk

I have been in a depression. I started on Caplyta 12 days ago.

I’m thinking Bipolar Depression. But no, now really I am thinking I was mistreated by a professional I saw. Then they tell me it’s my perception. I’m not so sure.

It is my nature to get along and agree and to people please.

But now I am starting to prioritize me.

Who cares what they think. It devastated me.

This afternoon I felt I deserved a treat. Just one. Not a six pack. This is an occasional thing.

Tomorrow my Intensive Outpatient which had been being held online goes in person.

Not everyone will like me.

I just need a few good anchors.

We shall see.

I have a new therapist and I asked her to help me attain my goals. I no longer want to share realities.

She may not agree.

I am 56 years old and have to trust me.

To be continued. THE END 🌈 💜 🌟

  1. I agree completely with what Ashley said about therapists having poor insight, at times, about how they come across. My daughter is a licensed therapist. She is an awesome, amazing woman. But she is also a fallible human being. As her mom, I know how human she can be, just as she knows how human I can be. 🙂

    ‘This afternoon I felt I deserved a treat.’
    we all need to treat ourselves.

    1. Thanks Gavin 😊 I’m glad. You too.


  3. I think that professionals often have poor insight into how their behaviour comes across to clients. Your perception of being mistreated is valid, regardless of what the professional’s intentions may have been.

    I hope in-person Intensive Outpatient goes okay. ❤️❤️❤️

    1. Thank you Ashley that was great. My perception is valid but the professional’s intentions were otherwise. That helps clear things up. I will be writing for sure about in-person IOP ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
