    Against My Will

    So when I was in 9th grade one of the teachers came to the conclusion that because I read sci-fi novels I mustn't be able to tell the difference between reality and fantasy. To make things better, a friend reported seeing cuts on my arms and before I knew it I was being forced...

    A Couple of Times

    I was in counseling when I was having panic attacks about getting onto a plane for a trip to Europe in '92.  I got on the plane, so in one sense the counseling succeeded, but it brought out a ton of issues with my folks, since they volunteered to participate, too. Then...

    Is It Worth It?

    I recently started online counselling on Kooth, which seems to be a site I have hoped for for a long time. It's taken a long time to realise I need help, and finding Kooth which means I don't need to face my fears of open counselling, is a huge relief. However, I think I saw...
