just got back from my therapists office...dont think im going back...she tried to tell me that the mania i experienced that landed me in the hospital(with ect to stop the psychosis) was my way of running away from growing up...that we were getting close in therapy to the pain from my childhood(dads death and therefore unhealthy separation from my mother), and that the mania was a way of running away...that my depression is a refusal to live and take responsibity for my own life. ive spent years listening to this woman...was angry at my mother for years b/c i let this woman convince me that i was neglected....im done with all of that crap....do i just quit therapy altogether or can i find one that really knows what bipolar is? im really sick of therapy!
