If I were to be completely honest, up until this point I haven’t had many, if any clients who have tested my skills and my expertise to this level. In order to keep the doctor/patient confidentiality agreement in place, no names will be used, but I’m struggling to even do that.
The things I’ve heard, the things he (or she) has told me, I’ve struggled to keep a grip on my sanity. I’ve had troubled clients in the past, even clients who’ve done horrible things, all of them I could handle. But to have a client who stays on your mind as much as mine does now is starting to worry me. I’ve never doubted my skills or what I can do for people; there is just a sense of urgency with my client now.
Help is certainly needed, and I wish they had come to me sooner. Things may not have gotten this bad had he (or she) come to me before the…sickness took a hold of them. I know that I can do this, but I’ve never been pushed to the brink this early and this quickly.
Someone needs to help this person, and if it’s not me, I truly believe this person cannot be helped, and nobody is beyond help.
This is my cross to bear.
