I’ve not been on here for a while, it’s been so hard just trying to get through the days; keeping myself busy, trying desperately hard not to think about things and often failing miserably. I’m so tired of feeling so shitty all the time. I had my first session with a counsellor today, after feeling initially nervous and not wanting to say much everything came out and I cried like a baby. I feel absolutely drained now and very emotional. So my question is this, does counselling really help or does it just bring things back up and make you feel worse? I am booked in for another session and will see how it goes, but I’m not really sure how much going over and over everything again and again is going to help me, particularly when I’m so tired of all of it. I just want to feel normal again. I guess I’ll go again and find out, I’m wondering what are other people’s experience of counselling?
