I Use Ep For My Therapy

    Its Actually Not That Bad....

    Recently I have ended a difficult relationship of 14 years, we had one child, not married, and too many issues between us to mention.. For ten years, I tried to live in the same direction, it took me that long to realize how much of a difference there was between us. To me I...

    Heck Yes!

    This is better than previous therapies I've tried. I've done counseling, journaling, meditation and other forms of venting or stress relief. But, this site has to be one of the best! I'm glad to use EP as therapy.

    Working Out That Way

    Been some months since I posted in this section . A few years ago I did say a therapist. When they gave up on me I decided to handle things on my own. It have been hard. Another thing I been doing over the years is using dating for support. Thought that was not my main reason...

    I Was Just Looking Around Online.

    I'm not sure what I typed into the google search. I found EP though, it's so helpful, the people on here are supportive and not judgemental, they try to help even if its by critizing me. :-) I don't know how I would be if not for this site and the friends I have on here. It makes...

    Ep Is Like Group Therapy

    Really it is!!  Whenever I have an issue I can post about it and get a variety of different helpful perspectives.   I find the feedback so invaluable.  I've learned so much from other EP members.  Thank you all!!!

    EP Is Great

    I write a lot about what i'm thinking on here. There is always the risk of someone trolling my stories, but I guess It doesn't matter that much. I know that I don't have to like them or talk to them if I find they are being offensive. It's nice to have a place to put my thoughts...

    Cheaper Than A Shrink ..hehe

    I am a very verbal/social person and I find that often all I need to do to feel better about an issue is to vent it. I realise though that constantly venting to friends can probably be draining for them, and selfish of me.My ex-boyfriend never use to understand my need to vent. I...
