The start of any kind of therapy gets on my nerves and today was quite trying at the intensive outpatient hospitalization big time. What I dislike about starting new forms of therapy is the questions they ask. They are all the same and I often wonder why they can’t take the time to pass this sort of information between the different programs. What even made today worse was the fact that two people asked me the same questions that I don’t even want to answer in the first place. Is it so friggin hard to just have them talk to each other and leave me the frig alone.
What else I didn’t like about today was the fact that I had in my head what I thought the place would be like by taking what I knew from other places just like it, or what I thought was just like it. Well it was so much different then I even imagined it would be.
The first group was exactly what I expected for a first meeting though. Those of you who have done this sort of thing will know what I mean. I am guessing it is a sort of check in group where each person says how they are doing at the moment and then tell the group a goal you have set for yourself for the day. I took the easy way out, because I didn’t know what to expect. I said I am fine and my goal for the day was that I find the right bus to take home. (Just a note, it is faster for me to walk there and home. I didn’t realize how close the hospital was to my house.)
