Just clean my head up doc, I'll give you anything you want (Not- so-R TT)

Thursday after work I have my first session with a therapist.

I've been thinking about finding one for a while - any of you who have been keeping up with my sporadic posting over the last several months can probably see how up and down I've been - last year was a rough year.

I'm not really sure how I feel about therapy. I think it can be beneficial, obviously, but I don't know how I'll do talking about things with a stranger. I can't talk about half of what's on my mind with my closest friends - why do I think someone I've never met will be any different?

Or maybe that's what will help me...I don't know.

I just know that I need to do something before I implode. And if talking to an objective party could help, well, I'd be an idiot not to try.

Have any of you been in therapy? Did it help? (Feel free to email if you aren't comfortable leaving a comment about it. I'm curious)

I guess if anything, maybe I'll start to figure out why I'm so fucked up when it comes to love/relationships. That'd be a good start.

And also, maybe I'll be able to overcome my fear of rectangles....(anyone who gets the reference? Officially my hero.)

Ohhhh therapy. I have been in and out of therapy for over ten years. It has been WONDERFUL! The key is to find someone that you feel helps you. Not all therapist are alike! Took me about three to find the one that really, really pushed me to get to the root of everything.

Stick with it! It is quite nice to just go in and talk about yourself, and things that usually only go around in your head, to someone else.

I agree with Jess. If my plan would cover it more, I would be in a therapist's office all the time! It's nice to clear the head of all the dark stuff, just get it out. You always feel lighter after. But, yes, you need to find a therapist that makes you feel like they're doing something, even if it's something as passive as listening. Hope it went well!

Thanks ladies. It went well, and I like the woman I was referred to. She's very no-nonsense, which is what I need. I'm sure I'll post more about it at some point!
