Yet Another New Therapist

So, I’ve gone through different therapists over the last several years. The process is understandable, but it’s still jarring. I get to a point where I’ve established a rapport with a current therapist, that person leaves, and I have to start from the beginning again.

Another frustrating thing about the process is being told one thing and then being told another. My previous therapist said they’d be leaving for a short while and then coming back. Now I’m being told the change is permanent. I have to wonder why this was the case. Why couldn’t I have been told? I know it wouldn’t have changed what happened, but it would have let me prepare for it better.

Going over the same ground has left me feeling worse, not better.
