Too much "life" happening
tnmist posted:
Started my every-other-week sessions with my "T" because of financial constraints and higher cost of co-pay, as I've mentioned before. Gotta say this just stinks. I had a list of 22 topics to discuss. 22! Too much going on!! He read my list and exclaimed that it was enough for 2 or 3 sessions. I agreed.

Almost makes me want to just quit the sessions altogether for a while because I'm so frustrated, but I suppose some sessions are better than none right now. At this point in my life, I think I would totally sink without some grounding with my T, and I also think they are at least keeping me out of a hospital.

I have gotten away from journaling, and I think I will start that up again; it may help. That, and I have more venting to do through drawing. I do abstract stuff. I'm no artist, trust me, but I use the colors I'm feeling, and it does help.

It is hard sometimes to NOT shut everyone out and keep silent, but that was what I did most of my life, and I feel that talking is a direct, umm, hmm, "bird" finger to my abuser. So, talking is scary, but I relish it at the same time.

Oh, and I re-started several supplements/vitamins that I had ditched for a few months. I'm hoping they will help again.

Guess my motto for 2013 will be something like, "Try to care about my health--can't hurt, may help!"

Yes, more rambling from this gal. Thanks for listening.

some therapy is better than none, and with your plans to start journaling again and just taking better care of yourself, you will be just fine. hugs

Yup. I'm sure I will be.
Guess it's my turn to apologize for whining.
Take care,
