I fear that the problem that I went through this year would repeat.

I don't think it's likely, but I still fear. I had a rough year this year. You can see all about it. I have a particular reason why I hate fall and winter.

My therapist was very helpful in dealing with me last month, but she has become less and less so. She gives out absurd answers, and demands to bring somebody with me.

I'm getting frustrated with her. Getting annoyed. Not only that, my parents are having issues with expenses of this house we're living. We have to move out to a cheaper house. And oh, yeah. They have to worry about our grandmother, who is over 90. She can't listen well, and forgets a lot of things. She got absent-minded.

I tried to help, but I just get in their way. It's best to butt out. However, I have to take responsibility. If I don't take care of this problem, my mother will lose her mind and become delusional again. My mother is stressed out for too long. The last time she was like this, she lost her mind. Thankfully, the mental health workers told me that as long as she takes her pills, she is fine (Risperidone, Depakote). But I still have to be responsible, or else I'd get very scared. I want to leave my parents, but they're not allowing me to... and I have no jobs. Getting a job is difficult in South Korea. Sometimes, I want to go back to US, but because of my college, I can't.

I hate being tortured by my parents' constant yelling, so I have to leave them alone. But it's harder to do that when I have responsibilities and I'm not allowed to leave (they have OCD- I leave when they tell me to leave). I wish to run away.

Hi frisas!

You're just going through so much! I wish I could give you a hug. I'm glad that your therapist has been somewhat of a help. What kind of therapy treatment are you receiving? It seems like you could benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I know that life is tough, but re framing our thoughts could help make life a little bit easier.

I receive Christian Therapy because my therapists need to understand my religion. It's difficult to do that with secular therapists. My therapist just had a rough day. Too busy that she can't think well...
