My therapist went on an unexpected leave.
This isn't a huge deal, I go to the student wellness center on campus, and my therapist is free. There are also about a dozen therapists that work there.
However, when the receptionist calls me to cancel my appointment there are two things that I wasn't expecting:
1 - They rebooked my appointment for a month now... as if I would be perfectly fine going 6-8 weeks without seeing my therapist. Additionally, they did not give me any other options, such as seeing someone else. That was it.
2 - They told me she got into an accident, and then gave me no other information. Why in the world would you tell a patient, who is seeing someone for an anxiety disorder, that their therapist got into an accident?
You would think that they would be smarter than this.
I have no idea what happened to my therapist, and she's been off for three weeks now. I'm so stressed over whether or not she's okay, and I can't not have therapy as we head into exams...
Back to studying now.
