I Use Ep For My Therapy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 172 People

    I have anxiety that I didn't know I have.

    I was pretty calm when I was younger. Now I feel like I am anxious about meet people that I know and people I don't know. I don't want to go outside because I don't like too crowd places. I can't really talk without my throat gets tight sometimes. When I talk my words comes out...

    Oh My God, Yes-

    That is exactly why I logged on today. (Most days actually.)I love EP because I get to speak, as well as learn more about myself, in ways that would be unbelievably difficult (if not down right impossible) in real life. This is the evolution of a diary for me.Even if I don't...

    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 Has Become My Therapy.

    I am primarily using Experience Project for my therapy.. To help me talk about my past and also current issues and try to move past them. I've tried counselors and they just never worked for me. This so far is helping a lot. I will use this site as my therapy and if you don't...

    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.

    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...

    I use EP for Therapy.

    I need much repetition to reprogram my brain. I think - I hope EP will help me do that. If it doesn't - I still will have done something with my time that is okay.

    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...

    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...
