I have this problems of not having the strength to keep my decision private and not tell my dad and step mum about my therapy. lf. I feel like I have to keep telling my dad before doing anything, it’s because he is very controlling too. But my other siblings just do what they want without obsessing. My dad and stepmother interfere in me getting therapy and although now they don’t stop me after arguments I fear that if the therapy does not work they will just say I told you so and that repeats in my mind constantly. I don’t see how I would benefit from therapy even if it started, because in the past I have stopped it after my step mum keeps making unhelpful comment that undermine my confidence and belief that I can recover from this condition.
I know the problem is my stepmother but how do I get past that and find ways to finally get therapy, follow through with it and ignore her. I guess it’s very important to have supportive people that encourage you rather than just being negative.
