I'm honestly so done. My mom called my therapists office to make more appointments, and since I cancelled most of my appointments for this month I can't see my therapist anymore due to "too many cancellations." I think that is bullshit. I need a mental health break from it because it is so mentally draining. And now I can't go anymore because I cancelling too much. I'm fucking done.

    I'm sorry this has happened. I imagine they took you off the patient list because they have other people trying to get scheduled and they thought they couldn't rely on you to show up anymore. Although, I think they should have warned you somehow that if you keep cancelling, you'll no longer be a patient. I hope you can find another therapist if that's what you choose.

    I’m sorry this has happened. MH professionals above all else should be aware that people need a break from therapy/appointments. If you don’t feel ready for the appointment/session then it is not going to benefit you, and MH professionals need to understand this

      yes true! It makes me angry that they didn't even care to ask why I needed a break. I think it's bullshit...

    Maybe try out an virtual therapist if that’s a possibility for you. I know for myself it can be hard to make it out of the house, with a virtual one I haven’t missed an appointment yet!

      it was virtual, but since it was draining for me I did have to cancel some. But it just seems no one really gets that..

        I understand how it can feel draining. Maybe you need someone that you see a shorter amount of time and if u were weekly, maybe biweekly or monthly for the time being. It can also be that you don’t connect with her too much if she’s exhausting you. Weigh out your options💗

    It’s the aspect of commitment. When your ready to work on the issues, develop Strategies, and generally want to feel better; find a new Therapist! Don’t give Up!

      thank you, I definitely won't give up. I just needed a break from it because it was so draining, and now I just feel a little guilty..
