I'm sorry you are having a hard time getting started with a therapist. It's frustrating waiting to hear how soon you can get an appointment with someone, especially after making the huge decision to work through these painful parts of your life. I hope you are able to start with someone soon.
I'm fairly new to this community, and I hope you find this group as supportive and encouraging as I have.
