Last therapy session my doctor basically said I may not ever be happy. What do y’all think about that?

I hope that this was a miscommunication. Obviously saying that you could never be happy is unhelpful and categorically untrue. At least as far as I’m aware there doesn’t exist a medical or psychological condition that would result in someone being permanently unhappy with no chance of change.

I agree with y’all. But she’s suppose to be the best, and I travel an hour to see her. Anyone on here uses better help and has insurance?

If you feel as though she is a good therapist than perhaps you should communicate with her about how you feel. Its possible she as mis-communicated what she meant.

Was that her exact words? Or did you interpret it as such?

Yes. I did say may not like there was some chance. But basically I won’t ever be one of the happy ones.

Hopefully this was a misinterpretation or miscommunication. Perhaps she meant something more along the lines of needing change. For example, if someone is in a bad situation or toxic relationship but is unwilling to leave or actively work to make things better, then that person will most likely remain unhappy. Were you two talking about a need for change and perhaps you are not ready to change something in your life that your therapist feels would be in your better interest? Just some food for thought. I would give the benefit of the doubt and at least straight up tell her you want more clarity because you felt hurt and confused/she judged you as “permanently unhealed and unhappy” person . It would give her the chance to clarify her words then if you could be honest straight on. However if she’s the type of therapist who makes u uncomfortable and is always giving you bad or uncaring vibes , don’t waste your time or money just leave. Not everyone is amazing at their job and not every good therapist is a good match for specific individuals and their mental health needs/mindsets etc.
