I am so mad tonight that I don't know what to do. I have been fighting with Voc Rehab for over a year now it seems since they are paying my Pcounselor she is now on their side. I also made a comment how hard it is not having any kids or family or anyone else in 3-D that everyone else seems to have. She said, "ah, there's a lot of people who don't have anyone." Is that suppose to make me feel better? She had me crying telling I can't do this I can't do that. I told her I've been told that all my life and I'm sick of hearing it.

Barbara,
I'm sorry you feel rotton. Read through some "just for fun" posts! You can't focus on that for this SECOND. Sleep on it and think on it with a fresh mind. It feels so different when you feel right after you reveal...It's a little tender right then.

don't let her get you down, barbara; she apparently thinks her job is to tell people what they can't do, rather than helping them figure out how to do something that they want to do.

you might want to think about seeing if you can get another counselor, or just stop going. what's the point of seeing somebody who considers it their duty to tell you all the things you can't do? you can figure that out on your own.

personally, i think you can do pretty much anything you put your mind to: after all, you quit smoking, and that's about the hardest thing most people will ever do. set your sights on something, and go for it.

Very Happy Thank you all.

Kevin, I'm emailed another counselor for services and have written a letter to one advocate to recommend me to one that I could use.

All, Except for a headache and eye strain today I'm much better.

Im so sorry Barb. It took about 3 counselors before we found the right one for our step children. One even cause more damage. I would also suggest you look for another one.
