    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...

    1 Year Ago

    Most of My Life

    I had been back and forth to therapy, for most of my life, dealing with my Social Anxiety and Depression. The first time I had therapy was when I was 15. And it didn't help, just made things worse! That was a year of medications that were bad for me and therapist who had no idea...

    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...

    I Gave Up On Counseling.
