Does it work?

I'm crashing headlong into the deep hole yet again. The brakes are still in place so I'm not going to hurt myself, but my mind is going absolutely crazy. I have such problems both at work and at home. They seem unsurmountable. Perhaps it's a temporal thing. My question here, however, is about therapy. Did it, does it still work for you? I can't handle the strain too much any more. I like one thing after each other with some pause in between too. Am I crazy to want that? Am I crazy to want some silence? I can't be myself either here, there and everywhere. It seems only yesterday that one wasn't pushed nor pooked for being different. I'm not questioning my sanity, just therapy. Is it not the cause of it all? I mean, the therapist will give you the easiest way out. Confrom, that's the main advice that I've been given. No, don't upset the apple cart. When you see collegues having trouble with the workload don't intervene, never ever mention strong believes because it might upset the bullies amongst us, work from the basis that you're not smart and need to accept your limitations, etc. I suspect that even Christ would be talked down to like this these days. It's very upsetting to be handling several hot patatoes at the same. I'm in that sense no juggler but I like to stay also myself as much as possible

I think talk therapy can help. It's at least something. Keep using all your other coping methods too, though, I suggest.

@PhilDeep You have no idea how many coping mechanism I have collected during the years. It's sometimes all in vain because the other partner nowadays doesn't want to hear any more. I'm not going to become a smartphone person when I actually hate the sight of how it's been used these days :)

Are you sure you have the right therapist for you?

@RuyLopez I know what you mean. I'm thinking of changing job too :-)
You sound in need of a holiday ..
