Most days I really like my field placement. Today was not one of them. Both of my supervisors are telling me different things about how to handle a difficult client who is having a hard time right now. I want to meet with both supervisors at once and have the three of us talk, but we don’t have a supervision meeting until Thursday of next week…
Then a client that I’m pretty close to moved back into the agency after having been gone for months for this surgery. I wanted to catch up with her, but her family was there. I would’ve gotten out of their way anyway, but they were pretty rude to me regardless. It was like everywhere I went I was getting on everyone’s nerves instead of helping.
The worst thing of all was that I found out another client (who is an alcoholic) was hospitalized over the weekend because she relapsed. I saw her today and she immediately started opening up to me about everything and crying. I felt so sad for her that I almost started crying.
I really need to get a therapist.
