I TOOK A RISK IN EMAILING MY THERAPIST BUT I GOT NO RESPONSE

I AM A WRECK. I EMAILED EILEEN LAST NIGHT IN DISTRESS. I THOUGHT SHE’D EMAIL ME BACK. SHE DIDNT. I FEEL REJECTED. I REALLY NEEDED HER TO EMAIL ME. I NEEDED HER REASSURANCE THAT I WAS GOING TO BE OK. WE’VE HAD SO MANY BIG CHANGES LATELY. ITS REALLY EFFECTING ME BIG TIME. I NEEDED TO HEAR HER TELL ME WE’LL GET THROUGH IT. AND THE CHANGES WONT KILL ME. BUT SHE NEVER EMAILED BACK, MAYBE I SHOULDNT HAVE EMAILED. I TOOK A RISK IN REACHING OUT. I SAID A LOT IN THE EMAIL. I WAS VULNERABLE. I HATE BEING VULNERABLE. I REALLY, REALLY DO. I FEEL SO CRUSHED THAT SHE NEVER RESPONDED TO ME. OVER 24 HOURS HAS PASSED NOW SINCE I SENT THE EMAIL. PROBABLY SHE WONT RESPOND TO ME NOW.

  1. I’m so sorry, Zoe that you’re having a hard time right now, but don’t give up on Eileen. Remember, she is concerned about you and I’m sure you’ll hear something when she sees the email. Sometimes things come up and we don’t check our email as soon as we should, but I know Eileen does care about you. Hang in there. xxx

  2. I’m so sorry to hear you’re struggling. Be proud you have the strength and courage to share and reach out. It’s a big deal when things are so hard.
    Have you had responses before from your therapist during crisis? Just in my own experience, some therapists want to maintain the boundaries of the professional relationship. They do care.
    There’s also the possibility that they just haven’t had a chance to check their email because they’re out, busy at work etc.
    You are distressed and vulnerable and so of course you can feel rejected and abandoned, but it’s not because of you or because there is anything wrong with you as a person or that you’re not worth it.
    I hope today brings a little peace xx

      1. Thank you. I am nervous going to see her on Monday don’t really want to talk about why it is that she didn’t respond to me, but I think it’s probably because something came up as she was busy I don’t think she would do that to me on purpose 🙂 Zoe

  3. Zoe as difficult as it is, we have to remember that our drs and therapists have lives of their own and sometimes even emergencies. I am sure she would get back to you if it were possible. Try not to take it so hard. Also remember that hard as it is you have come through other emergencies and try to keep this in mind and that something may have come up in her life and that she can’t respond. Hope you are feeling better now and perhaps have heard from her by now. ❤

  4. I have recently gotten certified as a life coach and I am by no means an expert but I am willing to help in any way I can. You have been a friend a support system to me and I have not been as available to you. Please email me. I can’t always respond immediately, but I will do my best to respond within 12 hours. I will respond to the littles as well 🙂
