So, I was sitting through abnormal psychology, and I was learning about different approaches to therapy. Needless to say, I understand my therapist better. She works in the realm of the CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). It’s basically talk about things, think about things and learn how to correct some harmful behaviors. It’s helped me a lot over the year, and I think it’s rather effective.
However, there’s a little bit of humanistic tendencies. It means she echos what I say at times, and then I can think about it, verify or deny the thought, or expand the thought. It’s also when she empathizes with me, and I like that quality. Just to know that what I’m going through is something others understand/go through is helpful.
Anyways, in other news, I feel like there is a possibility that I’m misdiagnosed. It’s because the nurse that I had was terrible at his job. He could’ve said I have bipolar disorder when I really have something else. I want to get another disorder screening done so that I can see if anything has changed from my original diagnosis (depression). If I do have bipolar, schizoaffective disorder, or borderline personality disorder, I suppose that it’s alright with me. It’ll be a little harder to take it if I have one of the last 2.
The scariest thing is that this person has lied in the documentation of my records, so that means that he has technically committed a crime. This is why I want to go through another test. I never trusted this guy, and I don’t now.
But yeah, that’s what’s happened today.
