But her today her question made me extremely mad. I do know that she had good intentions and she hopes to push me towards being "myself" again.
Truth be told? I don't think I'm ever the same person anymore. Nowadays I prefer time alone and socializing has become a tiring and daunting task I no longer have energy for. My friends are frustrated and so am I. I feel like each day I'm trapped in a delicate dance of avoiding triggering topics and socializing for the sake of doing so.
Each day is so tiring, so exhausting and the next so daunting.
The more I let it out the better I feel. Cameliafl, face them when you want to, be it when you are ready or not ready. How you let it out does not matter at first, anger, sadness, grumpiness, there is no "right way". You can continue to talk to your teacher if you want. One of the things I would ask her is to just listen to you, just listen and tell her you understand it may be difficult. Then tell her more and how it made you feel angry, it will let her know where you stand and how she can be there for you.
Keep doing what you are doing because it does get better. =)
That would make me mad as well if someone said that to me. I have a hard enough time opening up to people, then when people just don't get it, I regret ever opening up to them. But, all of my counselors have told me that I need to keep talking about my feelings if I am to cope with them. So sometimes I still talk to people who don't get it, but I do it for myself. and I try to ignore their comments of ignorance.
I also know that feeling of being burned-out all the time. My emotions suck up all the energy out of me. I feel I have a headache all the time. And no energy to even think. It's exhausting. When these emotions became too much for me, I started asking my doctor for medication. I got the medication, but it can take several months to even start working. So now I'm still exhausted.
Just keep talking, even if all you can say is that you're exhausted. Sharing helps.
