I am starting group therapy. Since I am still a dependent, my parents pay for it. For whatever reason, they’re claiming they can only afford it once or twice a month. I know, it sounds bratty, but my parents don’t hide from me how much money they make so I know they can afford weekly. My mother texted me to “omg grow up” when I said once a month won’t help at all. To which I said, "Grow up? You do not experience what I experience. You do not live though the things I do. You do not feel the things I feel. You don’t understand what I am going through. You have no place to tell me to grow up because I am doing the best I can and you know what? That is pretty fcking grown up." And I guess she felt bad and she apologized. But, you know, still hurt she would pull that. She sometimes isn’t as understanding or accepting about this whole thing as other people, which is why I’ve been avoiding going home. She knows I’m struggling and they chose to update the house and that is why we are “tight on money”, even though they knew I’d be going weekly. But whatever. I’m sorry. I know that sounds btchy and stupid and I feel stupid for being upset over it but they approved me and encouraged me to go every week.
But point is, is group therapy twice a month beneficial? Is it really worth it?
