It is not uncommon to have this kind of anticipatory effect when getting therapy. Knowing that there is someone who cares and is ready to listen to you can, in and of itself, be a tremendous boost to your well-being. I recommend keeping a diary of your thoughts and feelings as you move through the two-week period. This way you’ll have something to show the counselor. You’ll be able to track your thoughts and see the ebb and flow of your emotions.
I would also highly recommend a support group. Talk to the counselor about weekly groups that you might be able to attend that are a support for students. Even if it is a peer support group I think having something regular would be terrific.
Finally, I also recommend the forums. Reaching out through the Internet it’s a really good way to make connections, learn how other people cope, and get support.
Wishing you patience and peace,
