Oh no! Didn't you use an alarm? Maybe do that for next time, hopefully you don't get charged still

I set the alarm and as backup, asked my brother and sister to make sure that I was up. I slept through the alarm and my brother only knocked once. I told them that they should have kept trying until I got up. Iíve had insomnia for the past two nights so my body was exhausted. I donít usually sleep through an alarm unless Iím seriously sleep deprived due to my horrible insomnia. I feel so horrible about it.

I am so sad that I canít stop crying. And my sister is making things worse with her comments. To understand, she doesnít see the point of therapy so she would never go to therapy. When I was upset that I missed, she keeps saying things that basically say itís no big deal and so that upset me. So then her next comment was that I care more about therapy than her. I told her thatís not true. I have frequently tried to explain to her why therapy is different than just talking to her. And when we talk about depression, she said she gets frustrated with me and why canít love help and I told her that some of the things she says would bring more guilt back to a depressed person.

Both my brother and sister have many issues too but they refuse to try therapy but I at least wish they would support my treatment.

Maybe try to make appointments in the afternoon or something. Less likely to sleep through. Make sure you find out if they will still charge, many T's will without 24 hour notice

Hopefully you can get in later this week or early next week

Sorry Hope. It seems like this has happened to you a couple times before. You might see if you can set your appointments a bit later in the day, particularly if you are having sleep issues. It's hard to make early appointments when you are dealing with insomnia.
