    Sorry to hear that you are struggling. Do you have a support system (parents, psychologist / psychiatrist) that you could maybe notify that you are not coping and that you may need a help at the moment? If not, you could always set up an appointment.

    If being overwhelmed is the problem, I have found that it helps to break things into little pieces and aiming to do just one piece at a time. It may seem "impractical" but at the end of the day you get more done rather than stressing so much about everything that you struggle to get anything done. That's what has helped me sometimes, You could try it if you want to. One step at a time. 🌸

    I'm very sorry to hear that, I hope it gets better. Just rely on those people and try to have self-empathy and handle things little by little. Hope you feel better soon!

    That's a great step to take! I know these things are hard, especially if you have never done them before, but you can do it - you've already made a start 🌸

    I spoke openly for the first time today about suffering from BDD. I found it quite liberating and feel like it was the right thing to do

    What's you mean you ruined it with the counsellor?
    The counsellor I had was lovely and she taught me some good techniques with automatic negative thoughts and relaxing etc. But I knew that there were some things I hadn't talked about with her- either because I forgot them, or I didn't realise that they were important, etc. And I tried to explain how I am when I'm at my very worst but I don't think I explained very well. So I decided that I need to say that I would like to continue with the sessions and explain that I felt like there was more I needed to talk about, and I prepared what I was going to say and everything, and then when my last session came no mention was made of further sessions and she seemed so pleased with my progress and I didn't have the nerve to say what I was intending to say. And I just can't go back now and tell her that actually I've not made as much progress and that I didn't tell her everything, it will let her down, and I can't go to another counsellor with this charity in case she finds out, because I really liked her, and I don't want her to think I didn't like her.

    Then yesterday I had a really bad evening, I had loads of anxiety which eventually made me get annoyed at myself and I felt absolutely awful, and I know that I ought to go and see a counsellor or someone again, but I just don't really want to? Like I'm really scared I will do the same thing and not be able to open up with the next counsellor and I just want to concentrate on my exams and then get more counselling at uni. My boyfriend has said that if I don't set up counselling or something by Sunday he will need to tell my family as it's that bad and I really don't want him to tell them. I'm hoping I can find online counselling or something...

    Can you get more counselling with the people at that charity? Has she finished the sessions because there was a limited amount or because she thought you'd made enough progress?
