    Cycle Of Existance

    I saw my first psychologist when I was in middle school. It was to address some self-injury and depression issues. She honestly wasn't the best therapist. I saw her for one or two years, but she never really helped. I only stopped because all of my friends kept bugging me about...

    My Therapist Judges Me

    Therapists, ideally, are non-judgmental. They listen, and offer new ways of seeing things, and possibly suggestions about how you might deal with issues that bother you. There are times when I think my therapist is judging me. Her body language—tightened lips, shaking...

    4 Years of Therapy, and Nothing.

    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...

    Debbie

    She's got to be the best psychologist I have ever had. I'm doing CBT with her right now and although I see her fortnightly I get in touch with her sometimes through email. She knows that I am afraid of using the phone and accepts that rather than trying to force me to call her.

    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...
