    For about 3 years now my sisters and I have gone to counseling. Our grandma wanted us not to be stressful and stuff. Because of our parents divorcing and stuff. Well we talk while we play a game I normally win. I think that if I could just say somethings that happened that no one...

    If Only It Were This Easy

    I have gone to counseling off and on since I was a teenager. I am currently going again because every once in a while I get overwhelmed by things. It helps to have someone to talk to who can give you a different perspective on things. Thankfully I have never gone to a counselor...

    Today I started my first session at counseling.

    I told my counselor about a lot of things, including my self harm issue. She told me that I have to see her every Monday at 3, or else she'll have to tell my dad or get the hospital and things involved. So I'm just going to play happy. I really didn't want help. -.- ****.
