Where wild minds come to rest
Yesterday I had another appointment with my Therapist. I've been going to her for my daydreaming for a few months but this session was more disheartening than others. I want to switch therapists but I have no idea who in the area has experience. She has helped me but the feelings of frustration are increasing especially with her saying that she "isn't seeing the effort needed."
During the first few sessions I knew things were going to be difficult. She mentioned in these sessions she was going to ask fellow therapists for advise and research the disorder but neither was followed through. Yesterday during the session with me, she pulled up information for the first time on it.
Treatment has been focused only on setting goals to limit time spent daydreaming. The goals? 4 hour time block during the afternoon where I don't daydream on 3 days of the work week. I've met only half of these. I'm a stay at home mom (kiddo is school aged) with no social life so these goals are...difficult. How long have I been trying to meet these goals? Two weeks. We are now starting the third week.
So, Yes, I am frustrated that she told me she isn't seeing the effort. With that being said, she did try to build me up after. I do want to stop daydreaming. I don't want it to consume my life. I want to be better.
The process is hard without mental health professionals with experience. It's hard without any defined treatments. It's hard because it's not officially recognized as a disorder.
