Hi all,well I've done it I've cancelled my counselling course. I've just not been enjoying it at all and finding it impossible physically,mentally and emotionally. Climbing four flights of stairs is just too much for me and last Saturday I ended up feeling sick and very unwell. I thought"what am I doing to myself?" . I have learnt a fair bit more about myself in the four months I've been doing it. I've found out I simply do not like large groups of people I get so stressed with it. My cognitive skills are not great anymore and trying to take any new information in is so hard. I think I'm doing the kindest thing to myself. I'm actually stronger now in myself and I know that because I can see what isn't working for me. I found the theory too challenging and I now realise that I am me and I actually like me and ive developed a strength that I never realised I had. So although it might also sound rather negative it isn't actually. I've learnt my physical and mental limits. I have no idea what the future holds for me but it isn't being a counsellor well not a person centre one anyway,I didn't agree with one of the core conditions. I'm going to take some time out and review my situation. I thinki panic about having to go back onto benefits,the situation is so not good. Currently I am living on my parents inheritance which will disappear in the next couple of years. I really wanted to use some of the money to start a new career but fibro is making it very hard.
