    My Therapist Judges Me

    This is so nice. I have a nice psychologist.

    He is a Christian like me. He has been so helpful in getting me through when I got raped. I already suffer quite the trauma when I get stressed enough daily because of how my brain responds to things that happen to me. I was born that way. I never look for pity. I just write...

    That's just a ridiculous amount of time to be sitting in a shrinks office in my opinion but that's what I've done and to be honest, other than being given a few diagnoses, it's done nothing for me. I think I have more issues now that before I started therapy. I've seen 9...

    My psychologist told me not to distract myself,

    to keep thinking about what I'm worrying about when I become anxious to try and work out what I'm worrying about. Three practically sleepless nights later spent curled up in a ball in the kitchen at 3am, I can't help but disagree with this advice.
