I had therapy yesterday and I thought I had Missing Mother syndrome. My mom died when I was 12 and with my miscarriage I thought it brought back all that I lost when she past. The therapist doesn't agree she thinks I have a panic disorder because of I had no control over the miscarriage and it triggered how fragile life is. Great now what...I hate taking medication and that is the only thing that has helped so far. I want my "normal" back, whatever that should be. I miss my daughter and I always will but I can not bring her back and I know that so why am I stuck in this vicious cycle. I hate the what if's.
I hope you can keep going with your therapy because maybe more sessions will help as well as the medicine. I don't know what else to say either because I am in a similiar position but I don't go to my psych. until Nov. 12. Just offering you a big hug and know that you are not alone.
I don't really know what to say, but I am glad you are trying to take some steps to help yourself. You seem to have a good head on your shoulders, we just don't always know how to handle the things that 'floor' us. That's the term I've been using for it. I always need to know that whys and whens of everything. I could handle any situation that was handed to me, except this one, it 'floored' me.
I hope that you stick with the therapy. True healing takes time. Hopefully as things progress you can find other ways to deal with your feelings so that you don't have to take medicines. I wish you peace.
I'm sorry you are going through this. I agree with the pp hopefully therapy will help you find ways to deal with your feelings and help you find ways to refocus your energy into all the things you love about life again. I wish you well.
I am so sorry that the appointment did not turn out as you hoped. Have you tried a naturopath? i just went for the first time on Friday. I'm not sure if it will help but I'll take anything right now.
