    The Wrong Therapist.

    Therapy is a waste of time,

    at least it was for me. Therapy is not only very expensive, but something that it doesn't help that I am not someone who can open up to people. I tried therapy, I gave it 6 months of constantly going. After six months of trying I gave up going. I am not good at talking about...

    My New Therapist.

    I started going to therapy again in February and initially I thought it was helping, but I am starting to hate it now because every week I cry and I find it emotionally exhausting and painful. She said she doesn't want to open up any old wounds and wishes to protect them but I...

    Seriously Tho

    I had this therapist who didn't do anything but talk her  a s s  off. She never even let me talk. Worthless little chicken.   Then there was another one when I was 5 yrs old, and really all I did was play with the sandbox they had there. She asked questions that...

    For Me It Is

    I have tried therapy off and on since I was 15. I thought I could recover the memories of the hell I feel about the years between ages 2-6? I tried hypnotherapy. I felt uncomfortable and not completely under, and even if I did go THERE I wouldn't want to experience it in front of...
