Get a bereavement counsellor they say.
Get grief counselling they say.
Ok. Finally did it. Finally made the call to a counsellor who is trained in helping me process the emotions that I’m going through. Finally got myself in a place where I needed help with the feelings.
Made an appointment.
In order to access the bereavement counsellor in this area, I have to call a larger centre, which then calls her and then she calls me back. So I called.
She called me back. (This was on Wednesday)
She said, “Can you come see me tomorrow?’
I said yes.
That was yesterday.
Today at 1pm, I show up for my appointment. I wait. I wait. I try the door. I wait some more. Finally 10 mins past my appointment time, I go home.
I was stood up by the bereavement counsellor.
I got back home… called the office, left a message. She just called back. She only comes up on Fridays and thought yesterday was Thursday.
So I have an appointment tomorrow at 1pm. Friday.
