some things are passed on/down to us by the gene pool ... some by "inheritence"....some by dysfunction and misfortune. Some things are not our burden to carry...still all too often we do.

There are things from my childhood and family "traits/habits/obsessions" I would love to have liposuctioned out of me...but since I cant...therapy has helped.
I can only speak for me, but sorting it out and giving it all a name, just talking about it, has helped.
Hugs to you...its a brave person who asks for help.

Hmmm.

Just go see. My therapist ended up being my best friend. sigh. Too bad we couldn't date.

(I know. Even HE said that was too predictable and chided me that I could do better than that.)

Now sure if I can help, but if you need an ear? e me.

Really don't know what to say, so I'll just say what comes to mind: I think you're an amazing poet unafraid to plumb the depths of anger or use an ironic stance to try and hide feeling, in the end, pushing it back to the reader to feel and understand. You blow my mind with each and every post. I know that really has nothing to do with the case at hand, but I just wanted to let you know -- you rock.

I've never been to therepy.. some people have suggested, one even begged, but I never did it. I'm too worried about how it'll make me look to other people around here. Kudos to you for not caring. I know it must be hard and weird and stuff, but I think you should try to stick with it and see what comes out of it. It could help, who knows? Best of luck, hon

Hey at least you're going back hun.  I quit going after my second session, and I know I need to go again.  You're braver than I, and I have a very deep respect for you for going back.

i've been seeing shrink one [psychologist] for almost three years now.

i haven't seen shrink two [psychiatrist] since september and i don't know if i'll have to go back to that one again.  i never really liked him much.

my god, so much therapy...

and i've noticed they changed the subject of my topic.  grrrrr...  it defeats the whole point.  but who am i to say it.

My mother forced me into therapy several times. I hated it. I hate being forced to do something. And I hate talking about whats wrong with me to people who dont know me and are getting paid to hear me talk about my problems. I was only doing it because I had to. I would've actually tried to get help if I went for me and not someone else. So I just sat there. My therapist would get so frustrated with me because I wouldnt even try. I was so angry at everyone and he knew that I was so ticked off that I was forced into it.
I even was "diagnosed". I dont think its too hard to get diagnosed anymore. I even took med's for a while. Never seemed to work for me.

Actually, whoever changed your topic title made it look like the/rapist. That's what I thought it first said, actually.

Another case of better to leave it alone.
