Hey! I am writing this for my friend. She is battling with her depression disorder. Her mother died a month ago because of cancer. She is the only child of her parents. Her father left her a week after her mother's death. Now she is staying with her aunt. But she is fully depressed after these two incidents and she is not talking to anyone. She always sits alone in the class. She was very studious but this disorder has affected her studies too. When I talked about her to my mother, she suggested taking her for counseling. When I googled, I found that a clinic in Toronto provides individual counseling. So I'm planning to take her there. Is it effective to undergo an individual counseling? Is there anyone here who had undergone a similar situation? Please share!
Hey, I'm in a relationship with this guy for the past five years. We've faced a lot on the go like we had a few breakups in between. It was a pretty good year we had together since our last patch up! Last month he proposed to me, we are getting married by the coming May. Deep inside me, I feel insecure, because I intentionally adjusted a lot to be in this stage. Somewhere I love him very much! Sometimes I hate even his presence and I feel to get rid of him! At times, I fail to tolerate him. Even then I adjusted and acted like a fool just to keep this and to avoid another breakup. I have an OCD past, so I'm afraid whether I'm obsessed with this relationship or I have ROCD! I don't know what I've been through, tensed, afraid, self-harming! Apart from every issue, we love each other. I don't know but I'm worried not about getting married but about the success rate(Maybe it is because we had the freedom to leave when we had a relationship and marriage something more complex )! To sort out our existing problems, I have been to a couple's counseller, after a detailed examination and talk session he referred me to an OCD therapist in that same clinic! I postponed the appointment as I felt it is bad to hide such things from my bf! But I don't dare to disclose everything to him too! I need a suggestion, do I need to tell about my OCD therapy treatment to him or not? I need a precise suggestion because more than him I need peace of mind now!
