Can you get a private counsellor so you are not left alone with the rubbish these assessments bring up?

The trouble is that when I've been honest in the past I've been viewed as awkward/not engaging and whatnot. At the same time I need to be honest too. It's difficult because I feel I should give them a reason that I can't be fully open with them about certain things y'know? Not until I know that there'll be some consistency because I don't want things to be brought to the front of my mind and then be left alone again, as has as happened many times. ::-\:

Oh bless you. I wish things were better for you. Good luck with your assessment tomorrow. Let us know how it goes. And yes it is ok to say you are having a tough time trusting them because of history.

I'm glad that your counselor is helpful, it's okay to cry if you need to. Sometimes it does help to think of the funnier side of things, I think it's why I sometimes read the 'you know you're a self harmer when..' pages on the internet. It can be helpful to laugh at yourself a bit.

Anxiety is tough to deal with and it can exacerbate other issues. Can you do something to block other sensory stimuli? That helps me if I'm anxious.

I have yet another psych assessment tomorrow, if they let me down again I'll give up. I've been through tons of these bs assessments and I'm having a really tough time trusting them. Is it okay if I tell them that?
OT thinks that DBT would help me a lot but as far as I know it's only ever offered in groups and to people with BPD/EUPD so I don't know if I'll be able to get it since my dx is ASD and I can't handle groups. Plus, they often say that there's no SH when doing DBT but I wouldn't be able to commit to that, if I could just not SH I wouldn't need DBT!

Honestly, I feel like carrying on with the way I am is emotionally painful and exhausting I cannot keep doing it.

I sobbed on my counsellor about the time I was in hospital and what I did at that time. I also laughed a lot during the session. She is helping me.

I imagine that compared to feeling 'high' being calm must feel pretty pants.  :hug1:

I'm glad that the group went better, well done for going despite it being such a struggle last week.

I think that there are different levels of depression and it's possible to have a high functioning type but that doesn't mean things are easy especially when you're also struggling with memories too. Is your counselor helping you work through things?
