This morning I made use of another resource available to me through the May Court Hospice – I met with the bereavement counsellor. While my meds are helping with the anxiety, I am still struggling with soul-crushing grief most days. Oh, and anger. I am irritable and cranky most days, and I seem to spend a lot of time biting my tongue. Because I don’t want to hurt the feelings of anyone I care about. But what I really want to tell people is that I need time. Please just let me have some time.
Bereavement Counselling Homework
J, my counsellor, gave me homework of sorts today. Over the course of my session, I mentioned that I very easily get bogged down in the negative; that I forget to take joy from the little things. So I was given a pretty little notebook and I’m going to use it to make myself more mindful of the good things that happen to me, and around me. I also have to make a more concerted effort to do something good for myself every day.
Yes, sometimes living hurts. But I am doing all I can to make it better. I will eventually be ok.
