No there is nothing wrong with you. It is very normal to feel worse after. When you have therapy you are talking about your feelings and digging deep into yourself. It brings things into the open and its like opening a can of worms. The therapy will help in the long run but I think it makes you feel worse before you feel the benefits.
Continue with it and I hope you begin to feel better for it soon.

That is completely normal. You should ask your therapist, she'll tell you the same. Like someone said already, therapy takes you to rough places. Memories, digging into yourself, your personality, things you do and even worse; how you feel about things (including yourself) so it's normal and understandable that after a session you'd feel bad...or strange...because you've just done all this I mentioned above and it leaves you feeling vulnerable, exposed, scared even, nervous...and possibly dweling on the past so this feelings are normal. I guess they diminish when you get used to it...to digging inside yourself and are comfortable with what's dugged up...but don't worry.




"...that incremental suicide of turning your life into a dream, to make being awake as similar to sleep as possible. Drowsily, lazily, dry-mouth your way through the day's ceremonies, fumble your way back into the dew-bather you never really left, draped in brown, brown now all around, the haze!" - Russell Brand on drug addiction.

As the others have said it is reasonably normal but you should raise this with your therapist so she can try and end things on a positive note.

I used to try and do something after my appts. so that if I was feeling worse I had something to occupy me that I enjoyed and by the time I got home I was safe and ready to face the world again. Maybe you could try something similar.

What do you like to do when you're not with your friends. Are there certain films you like to watch? Games you like to play? Etc?
Maybe if you find something that you can do when your friends arn't available, it will give you something to perk you up after therapy =)

most of the time you are keeping most of your emotions supressed, bottled up deep down inside. the therapist forces you to bring these feelings to the surafe and deal them. the reason you feel terrible is because those emotions haven't been suppressed again just yet.
perfectly normal, nothing wrong with you.
