What else was upsetting in group therapy? Besides the thoughts of the pond? It sounds more like you should give the therapy a chance.

I'm not sure what is upsetting to you about group, but I have experienced difficulty with groups too. I have difficulty dealing with several people talking at once - a filtering thing, and that makes the informal chat time at groups very difficult. One group I meet with 4 times a year is a bipolar support group. 20-30 or so people. But at the moment I don't feel much connection with them or with what is discussed. They don't experience the schizo side of things, which is a large part of my experience. I have been grappling between feelings of wanting to leave and reasons to stay and participate, even though it is difficult. So far I have decided to stay.

I'm going to tell them that this week is my last. When I started there over a year ago there were maybe 10 people there max, but now there's 30 and it's too overwhelming. It's also catered towards adolescents (avg age is probably 15) and I'm 19 and over fighting with my parents and no longer in high school, the two things that we spend most of the time talking about. I feel like my problems are different. They talk about this one kid who is getting bullied in school and everyone wants to help, but when I talk about the leprechauns eating my food and hiding my socks no one says anything. Makes me feel more isolated than not going. Other kids there say how they're outcasts, but they're accepted by other members of the group. I'm not. I'm calling my pnurse and my t today to get appointments scheduled so I can leave the program.

Maybe they can get you into an adult group, maybe now that you're older?

The program doesn't have adult groups. The community health center that I used to go there used to have specific groups every week (relationships on tuesday, dbt on friday type of thing), but I'm not in that system anymore because the pdoc was toying with me and my case manager was pretty terrible. This girl I met at the hospital was telling me about DBSA groups that meet in the next town over and I think I'm going to go with her. It meets every Thursday.

I hope that will work out well for you. I wish that pdoc had done his job right for you.

Really bad day. Suicidal thoughts, nightmares, the works. During class I couldn't get myself to care about future assignments because why the **** should I work on process analysis when I'm gonna be dead before the due date?
