    A Couple Weeks Ago

    Tomorrow I get to see my therapist. Again. It's not like I wanted to go, but when my mom found out about me cutting...well, she wasn't exactly thrilled. I know that it hurts others, and it's hurting myself, but what can I do if pain is practically the only way I can tell if I'm...

    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.

    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...

    Her name's Rachel, she's pretty cool.

    Very nonjudgemental and pretty helpful. Good listener. Hasn't told me I'm going to die alone or anything :)

    I'm seeing my new therapist tomorrow.

    I'm really nervous about it... my mom said, they'll ask me, why I want to start therapy there and stuff like that (Obviously they will). I'm scared that they will send me away. And even more scared to tell them everything... I'm not the greatest speaker and trusting someone with...

    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...
