Is it normal my therapist ghosted me

My therapist cancels every other meeting of ours because shes "sick" and we were supposed to do CBT but since im depressed I cant do that I only need to talk. I just started a work prepping internship and I had an appointment with a doctor last week as my therapist had expressed grave concern to her about my mental health. Im not sure why because today for example I feel GREAT!! and its kind of just like that now though the other day I really was not happy in any way its possible to be.... But that was then!! Anyways I dont know why the doctor, my therapist, my mom and others express concern for me being "fragile". I take care of myself. Now I even get up every morning for the internship do my makeup and get dressed and go. Sure when im there I cant speak to anyone because it takes too much mental strain to talk AND work and it really pushes me to the edge when someone talks too loud or there is sound in the breakroom it will really ruin my entire day and even give me a migraine and then my day is definietely ruined FOREVER and I cant tolerate the fact that people are capable of percieveing me and if I could choose entirely I would ask to work alone in a semi-dark room with no one knowing about my existance but aside from THAT its all good and I do what im told and all that. :) My therapist has ghosted me though :( ive sent her TWO emails now. In the first I said I get our usual day off every week so we can keep having sessions, in the second one I asked her if its okay we keep having sessions?? NO REPLY!! :'( That and the FACT that the doctor who was worried about me even working at all right now apparently said she is going to tell my therapist to keep having sessions with me and by now she must've done that so my therapist is IGNORING doctors ORDERS too!! IIN???

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Not trying to be mean but if you're actually getting ghosted by therapists that could mean you are really hard to deal with. Also doesnt this therapist have schedulers? Usually you dont contact the doctors about appointments. You're supposed to call their schedulers.

    As far as being annoyed by noises I have that too with people chewing food or smacking gum. I think you should build your career around that fact so you can be happier. I worked in an office for a few months and it was hell. Id never work in an office environment again and you probably shouldnt either. There's no way to nicely tell people "hey quit making noises" because at the end of the day its your problem not theirs. Best to remove yourself from the situation.

  • Maybe your therapist needs therapy. Whatever. In the end, everybody ends up on medications anyway. Lol.

  • CBT is supposed to be good for depression so I don’t get why you “can’t” have that.

  • You know what, good for you, OP. You seem like you're going through a lot of shit, but you are trying to still keep working and doing what you should be doing. I really wish you well.

  • Like olderdude already said, she could have actually be having health problems. If she REALLY is ghosting you, just fine a new therapist. Simple.

  • Perhaps she is actually having long term health issues.

    You should ask her about that; and if it continues (for whatever reason) you should ask for a referral to someone else that she considers would be a good fit for you; and then move on.

  • If she's really ignoring you find a new therapist.
