I Am In Therapy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 115 People

    I have been seeing a psychologist weekly

    since January. During that time I have processed my childhood, learned why I struggle with bosses, learned why I feel so scared many times, why I struggle with policing myself, and a whole lot more. However, one thing I wish I never learned was this: all people are hurting...

    Therapy Has Changed Me, Rather Unearthed the True Me

    I have been in different forms of therapy for 25 years with gaps in between. Group therapy taught me how I push people away which I really don't want to do. Also, that I really do want intimacy/closeness with people. The truama/drama childhood that I had left me not knowing who...

    I've been in therapy with someone productive

    for over a year now. I say productive, because I've tried before, a few times, and never seemed to get much out of it, but my current therapist really seems to get me. She won't cut me slack or feel sorry for me, but at the same time she's helped me immensely just by showing me...

    My therapist is an absolute ball buster.

    I don't go to be coddled, but rather to get the harsh, cold reality thrown at me. It has woken me up from the illusions I've had in my life. Hard questions, critical thoughts, and different perspectives abound. She does not let me easily hide from my fears. It's liberating...

    Therapy V. Counseling

    When I like to sound more "normal" I refer to it as counseling. Otherwise, it's therapy.

    I start tomorrow. I'm terribly nervous and worried as to what they might find in me. I have anxiety, but what if it's worse than that? I suppose that's the anxiety talking, huh. All I can do is jump in, give it my all, and hope for the best. I know this. Wish me luck, I'm...
