Lol sounds just like me, wow, maybe you have selective mutism?!?! My first psychologist was great, she really tried everything to make me talk, she used play therapy with me and some kind of sound tapping in headphones. She would keep asking me questions and telling me stories, I just couldn't say anything at all, she also told me about her own life during my first few appointments, she was so kind. I think it went on for 1 month, until she told my dad it wasn't working and I should see about getting on medication and quit with her for now. And the rest is history. I changed so fast, I might have had very sensitive receptors. I was talking to her and didn't care that I might have looked crazy, I just felt good, when you feel so good you can talk so much more. No, this was way more than that, I was talking to everyone, even people on the street and in the waiting room.... What an embarrassment I made everywhere I went, outrageous!
Find a psychologist who is specialized in Social Anxiety, might have more luck there.
I'm ****ing astonished myself at these psychologists, I would think they could help me, but as I've sat in silence with so many others, I've thought up more of how I could have helped myself if I were in their position than they even dare to try. It's so frustrating when I can't talk and they can't seem to try anything else that they can do to reach out to me! I could do much better, it's absurd.
Patricia: What...? What's your rating? 'Cause you really don't have a very good feel for people, honey.
Annie: You're using a service that gives you pretend friends.
