I have been going to counseling on and off all my adult life for advice on dealing with lifes problems and I don't feel like it does much good. In fact I notice I often feel worse after going. I will go to vent about what I think but then I feel that I am judged by them with makes me more irritated. It also frusterates me that they seem to think im lying about some of my experiences that happen to me. I dont think its just the counciler because Ive been to several of them. Maybe what makes me feel worse is they tell me how things in certain situations but I actually dont like how things are. For example I went to counciling with my ex-girlfriend and we would talk about what annoyed us about each other which made the truth come out and she broke up with me and kicked me out. I have also realized that the mental health clinics only know about common problems like substance abuse, low self esteem, phobias, and trauma. However I cannot relate to most common problems their trained to deal with which may contribute to them not knowing how to help me. I just don't know how to deal with people and I never know who is going to try to take advantage of me. Now I realize I could just not go but I also like having someone whos not in my personal life to vent to. Also where I live I have to be enrolled with counciling to get medication services to help me with functioning. However being judged makes me honestly want to kill everyone. The more I learn about people the more I dont like them.
