I’m Sharp When It Comes To Sizing Up Most People.

Lets talk about these therapists shall we.  Or should I say my very bad experiances with these licensed social workers who now a days double as mental health counselors.    For which I feel they are inadequately unqualified, but that’s just me. 

Before I was paired up with a good psychologist   at  the Veterans Admin here, I had seen a bunch of counselors.    I’ll focus on a recent one who worked at a mental health facility where under its umbrella had a veterans affairs section.   The lady I was paired up with was a licensed social worker which supposedly meant that  she was qualified?  to do mental health counseling?  To me I would say NO on that one.   To me only a educated trained psychologist can adequately get to the root of anyones issues especially when one comes from a history of violence & chaos.

This particular lady I had seen (the licensed social wrker)  seemed out of touch, in other words?  Clueless about anyone who comes from such a horrific background such as mine.   Example?  When asked about my high school years, I said to her that I was involved in sports & that I had 3 really good friends i.e. my friends came from really good 2 parent homes, they had a nice house, the household was stable, and everything was good.   The licensed social worker was like “Really”?  I’m surprised that you even had friends”.     Talk about an inappropriate statement!  coming from this skank!   Talk about inappropriate not to mention IGNORANT but this is what you can sometimes expect from SOME so called counselors who don’t deserve that title or ranking.    In short I discontinued seeing her.   She was stupid.   Plain & simple.  Not to mention I feel that she was somewhat biased & not real well informed, nor insightful on people such as myself who have dealt with the sort of trauma I’ve seen & experienced.   To be continued, wordpress is acting wonky.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down. "The person who sang the National Anthem sang the last note so high that no could reach it! That was intentional!" Belize from Tony Kushners play Angels In America. If you've read this far I will leave my email in case you want to leave me a msg. Those that are rude will get deleted immediately. Contact: Yogibeara425@hushmail.com
