Well, my fear came true. My new therapist, the social worker I was assigned to, has turned on me and drove me into the ground. I wasn't super comfortable to begin with, but now, all of a sudden, she's gone and gotten ambitious on me. She trying to set major goals and force me to do things her way in an accelerated pace. That doesn't work for me. I need someone passive, who understands that I have a slower pace, not someone who seems sweet then turns sour on me, revealing their true colors. So I think I'm gonna take a break from therapy for a while, and not go back to that social worker. I hate social workers for this reason, as they seem fine at first, but then they get all aggressive and goal-oriented. That's what I was afraid of when this whole situation first unfolded, and my fear has been confirmed.
I think I'll do some hunting elsewhere and try to find an actual psychologist, not a social worker, even if it means I have to go somewhere else other than the hospital's outpatient center. Why did my previous psychologist have to suddenly close up shop? Because of him, I was doing a lot better, now I'm back to square one, and once again I've be driven into the ground. I hate social workers, as they never seem to get the message about a patient's needs or do a good job at keeping their word.
So I think I'll cancel my next appointment and just lay low for a while, scoping out other possible options. Ones that don't have the words "social" and "worker" side-by-side in the same sentence.
So that's the update in my life. Fun, right? That's all for now.
