Where wild minds come to rest
I apologize in advance for my poor spelling and grammar - I wrote this pretty hurriedly.
My last post was about how I wanted to get help, well I did. My mom took me to my GP, and apparently just from looking at me she could tell how despondent I was - so she referred me to a psychologist and I've had two sessions so far - one last monday and one this monday.
As some of you may know, I originally wanted to get either some sort of general neuro evaluation or specifically an ADD test, as I strongly feel this will be worthwhile. At my first therapy session my mom filled out a form, and then it was just me and the psychologist and she asked me a bunch of different questions about my life, relationships etc. and just generally who I am. The topic of my excessive daydreaming came up pretty organically, and she didn't seem surprised at all. This time was more or less the same, her asking me questions etc. But what I'm wondering is, is this how it will be all the time? Should I ask her directly that I want an evaluation? What is the goal of therapy, a diagnosis? (Based on your experiences)
What I mean is, if the purpose of therapy sessions is just to talk to someone... that really isn't doing much for me and she hasn't suggested anything I do to help me cope. I leave the sessions feeling the same, if not worse because I'm leaving just to plunge back into my hopeless world.
I know it's still early as I have only had two sessions, but I am impatient.And I honestly feel like I have reason to be. everyday is a struggle, I honestly don't feel well enough to be going to school or doing anything - I honestly haven't been doing anything these past few months - everything is slipping away from me. I have been scraping by, and I don't know how much longer I will be able to. I feel like I'm just waiting till the day I just can't take it anymore
