I feel alone in my struggles

I know my mother is there for me, I also worked with a female counselor for 5years but she ended up quiting to work closer to home.
I built a reputation with this counselor but lost it. I’m afraid to get a new counselor. I’ve been living without a counselor for over 2 years now. I’m really not Ok, but I try to lie to myself that I am.

You mean social worker? I never had one, they offered me one but I refused. I don’t like relying on others to find work. I found work by myself, got accepted at more than 15 jobs but found out that its impossible for me to work even the easiest jobs like videogames tester.

I can barely take care of myself in basic stuff like bathing and hygiene with the help of my parents, my brothers sometimes drag me into the shower. I always liked complete independency but sz stopped me from being independent. I can’t even live alone. I can’t get on disability in Canada because I live with my parents.

Think of it as shopping around. Try different counselors until you find the right one for you. Don’t feel like you have to stick with the first person you meet. It’s important to have good rapport with the counselor you choose
