The psychologist that treated us was very professional and friendly; above all she told us that what was happening to our son was not our fault. Not mine, not my husband’s, not anyone’s. It wasn’t the time for looking for someone to blame.
Now, in a very short time, everything has changed. My son is much better.
We went to the psychologist and I really feel like I found someone who would listen to us and wanted to help us. Today, thanks to that visit, I can converse with my daughter. No shouting, no insults, no disrespect, no door-slamming. I think now that if I could have gone to a psychologist when I was young, my life would have been much easier.
I remember the first day that I went to the psychologist. I was in the playground playing with my friends and my parents came to get me. I told him that I often wet the bed.
Since going to the psychologist, I’ve only wet the bed once and that was because I saw a horror film and couldn’t sleep after. I love sleeping over at friends’ houses, when I can stay up at night talking and laughing.
I was surprised because I actually enjoyed going to the psychologist. I felt really comfortable and never felt judged or guilty at all. Now I talk to my mum about things that I would never have dared talk about before.
The best thing is that I’m no longer angry all day long and at college they’ve stopped telling me off. My Catalan teacher never throws me out of the class now and everything seems easier… even my exams.
