    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...

    Therapy V. Counseling

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

    I Am Therapy Because I'm Scared..

    I found therapy in the summer. It was paid for anyway with my school ID. I think after fall, I will stop therapy but I'll say I'll really miss it. I understand more of myself than I've ever done because no one told me it was something that has been already prescribed or what has...

    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...

    Well, I'm not technically in therapy yet.

    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...

    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...

    I have been seeing a psychologist weekly
