This mental health agency that I get my therapy through has finally started a group therapy session for adult women and it is for something to do with Anxiety and handling stress for people with various disorders. From what I can gather after the first two meetings and talking to a couple of the gal's outside at the smoke break, most of us have depression/bipolar and the co-morbids. It is being run by my therapist and one other therapist. Most of the women in it are MY therapists patients...lol. I have the sneaky suspicion that the other therapist is a social worker because she just seems a bit ditzy. I mean, she wanted to read us the definition of what depression symptoms were this week! Ummm...shouldnt we know this if we are either depressed or bipolar? LOL. Then this "therapist" made the comment that there are two types of depression: depression and bipolar. I just went sigh in my brain. Im thinking to myself...oh god no. Do I really need to teach someone who should know better the entire mood disorder spectrum? I sat on my lips. Then there was a woman in the group who said that she "only" had depression, not a mental illness and she just didnt understand any of the other stuff like bipolar and didnt want to because that just sounded crazy. LOL. I almost laughed outloud. Hello, Im Janet and here are all my Axis's. Im proud to wear them! I think before next session Im gonna make up my name tag to list my 5 axis...lol. I dont know that this group is gonna be a good fit. I think I may be too advanced. LOL.
