    Just Started

    I just started to see a therapist, and I hope she helps a lot. Already she's given me some good advice but I can tell this is going to be a long time I'm going to see her. The next time I see her, I'm suppose to write down goals to explore so let's see how this works. I'm pretty...

    I Do...Every Two Weeks

    I started seeing her about two years ago. She's a middle-aged lady named Ginger and I adore her. She encouraged me to draw and write in a journal. I suck at writing in a journal as you may realize if you've seen my attempts to blog. I do write, just not in a traditional journal...

    Sometimes I feel like I don't want to go.

    I suck with talking bout my feelings, esp if someone is asking me questions to try to get me to open up. But I go cause I know that my husband wants me to go. So im trying to stick it out and hope that it will help me soon.

    Update: I See A Therapist

    I've been seeing my therapist for 3 months now, and now am transitioning to a new counselor. Hopefully this new counselor will help me with things my other counselor didn't help me with or wasn't clarified with that much. I still deal with my phobias, which I still need...
