I have PTSD, GAD, and Major Depressive Disorder.
Last week, my counselor moved to a chair that was much closer to me. This week, she asked permission to sit on the couch with me - her at the other end. Later the same day, I had an appointment with a cardiologist who, after discussing medications, etc, listened to my heart - front and then my back. By the time I got home, I felt like I was on the verge of crying. I'm a female - they are both female - and yet, I was feeling like everyone is trying to trick me into something. while the cardiologist isn't quite relevant to the story other than I really need a large personal space bubble -- I was wondering if my counselor is up to something to help me? Like exposure therapy? Any thoughts from others in counseling?
