My counselor

At my day program quit and already I miss her. Have no clue when I will get a new counselor. Apparently there was a big staff turnover. I hate when this happens.
The anxiety of wondering if I will get a good counselor and the dread of having to tell her my life story,explain my gender/ pronouns.again.
Dread the thought of being stuck with a maga so called counselor..

1. Ah, my dear I_UndergroundPanther...

I hope so much that your fears don't come to pass and that you will soon have a compatible counselor.

Change is always hard to deal with! And especially when you're struggling with your own problems. It can all seem so overwhelming.

I am sorry that I don't have any concrete suggestions as to how to cope with this unfortunate situation.

But do know that I care, as do many of us here! We offer emotional support and I hope that will help.

3. I used to have the same health care providers for many years, sometimes decades.

The world doesn't seem to work like that any more.

I'm not instantly going to trust anyone just because they are a doctor or other licensed health care professional, but sometimes it seems that's what I'm expected to do.

5. This switching of counselors and doctors

Is an upheaval and I agree I dont automatically trust them. It takes me a very long time to trust people.

4. I suffer from very bad AAD

(Adjustment Anxiety Disorder)

I cannot handle change, especially if it happens under stressful circumstances. (And, most change does, I am afraid.) So, I feel what you are going through. I wish I had something to offer in the way of assistance, but what I can do is agree with the others. You have support and open arms here.
