    I Went Back to Counseling

    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. -.- ****.

    I Go To Counseling

    Earlier last year my counselor informed she would be leaving at the end of the year. I felt shocked and very disappointed, because I had been seeing her for 2 straight years. I thought that I had finally found the perfect counselor to help me sort out my past issues. During our...

    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...
