    A Different Me, a Different You

    EP gives me the chance to play at being a different sort of person.  I am already a pretty open person but on EP I try particularly to be 2 things:  respectful of other people and honest about myself.  I think it's great therapy because it gives me...

    I Think Ep Is Great Therapy

    I think Ep is great therapy, I totally agree. As far as I'm concerned, It gives me ideas, I love to write, and communicate with people.

    Sometimes You Just Have To Get It Out

    I keep so much inside. I don't like to talk about certain things to my friends. I've gone to counseling before for a short period of time. It was helpful to me given the situation I was in then, but I don't feel the need to go back. Some of the stories I write are about general...

    It's the Only Place I Can Truely Be Myself.

    I don't always like what I write but it has been good to look it over and self-analyze. EP has helped me to look back on my life and remember events that I had forgotten about. There are parts of my past that I have blocked out and EP helped bring some of them back. It helps me...

    Yes

    I recently wrote a story on here in the group "I think Therapy is a waste of time" and that is because I can't go to someone and talk to them how I am feeling face to face. I get too damn nervous even being around people that I have known most my life, let alone someone who I...

    I Get Alot Out of It

        At first I loved coming here - felt understood and not so alone. Definitely helped me get through a really bad time. Thing is, every now and again I still have some dark days and I feel more judgement than I did before, which is dissapointing.
