Caution  Feeling so lost and alone
We have been having a really tough time recently and have not been around much. Haven't been able to post for a while as everytime we try we are not able to find the words.

There is so much going on for us at the moment. We found out yesterday that our closest friend has got cancer again, the second time in a 18 months. It's only a year since she was given the all clear. We are finding this very difficult to deal with as the prognosis she was given last year was not brilliant. We are so worried and very upset. She is the closest thing we have to a family in our life. She is fantastic with all of us inside, especially the little ones.

Also our therapist is going away tomorrow for 2 1/2 weeks. The timing couldn't have been worse really but it's not his fault. We are feeling abandoned by out therapist which we know is a silly thing to feel. He says he understands it but we don't. Feeling so lost and alone and don't know how to deal with everything that's going on for us. To make things even worse we are trying to keep up with our studies, have and assignment due in 3 weeks but really feel like giving it up. As this is the last module for our degree we know that this would be a silly thing to do but it feels like too much pressure on top of everything else. Trying to take each hour as it comes. We are safe, just struggling.

Sorry this post is so long. Hope we've put it in the right place.

RE: Feeling so lost and alone
wow, you have a lot on your plate!

you are dealing with loss in so many ways

your t is right, it is understandable that you feel abandoned - he is going away (even if it is temporary) right at the time when you are feeling stressed about your friend and about school. we always say t's have some sort of radar to plan being away right when things are difficult for us... a little silly, paranoid and narcissistic, but that's how it always seems.

it seems trite to say that you are not alone here... we are here to sit with you if you would like, and to silently give you encouragement that you can make it. we'll sit with you one hour at a time, or one minute at a time.

Hi Mosaic,
Thank you so much for your reply to our post. Sorry for taking so long to post a reply to yours. We are having great difficulty finding words right now.

We understand what you say about T's seeming to have a radar for going away at difficult times. It usually feels like that to us too. We think it is going to be a long 2 1/2 weeks until we see our T again.

Thank you so much for sitting with us. Your company and encouragement is very welcome and very much appeciated. We do feel less alone when we come here, even when we just read and are uable to post.

Thanks again for your reply, company and encouragement.

How are you guys doing?

we are doing okay. this week on thursday we will be traveling to a training for our work and we are looking forward to it - we get to go back to a place we used to live, and in addition to the training, we get to see lots of friends and even a former t.
