So I think I’ll deal with my divorce now…

Who’s been to a therapist?
Is it weird?
I’ll bet it’s weird.

It’s been 3 months. I guess it’s time to start dealing with the ish. I’m not really a talker when it comes to really personal stuff. I’m more of an “act now, think later” type*. And that’s probably not the best characteristic to have when you’re trying to figure stuff out. So I’m going to a shrink today. For the first time ever. Because that’s what you do. And because mind health is just as important as body health. At least that’s what I tell my clients… Now I have to follow my own advice. I hate when stuff you say comes back to bite you in the ass.
Do you really lay on a couch?
Do you get sleepy?
I kinda want a therapist like Sheldon
from Private Practice…

  1. Oh girl! I asked my parents when I was 16 if I could go to a therapist. My parents were divorced and I knew it was affecting me. At first it was awkward, but then I LOVED it. I went to a few different ones until I found one that I connected with and felt comfortable to open up with. It was the best thing I ever did for myself! Be proud of yourself for going! Lots of people are too scared to go and then carry that baggage around with them! This is the best thing you can do for youself! Good luck 🙂

  2. i’m a therapist so i say go for it!

  3. never been but im so proud of you! hope it’s everything you want it to be and your mental health becomes as kick-ass as your physical health!

  4. Hey there, Hun! Just wanted to stop by and leave you a comment after I got yours! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    ps – I say go for it as well…I’ve been before and based on my experience I don’t think it could hurt any. HUGS!!

  5. I went to a therapist when I was a teenager. I must say, I think it really helped. She didn’talk a lot, just listened. The first few sessions were uncomfortable but after that she couldn’t get me to shut up! I wish you all the best in dealing with your issues.

  6. I love therapy! I actually probably need to go back since I have been crazy stressed out lately. Counseling actually, literally, saved my life after a horrific breakup in my 20’s. I became a counselor because of my experience with it:)

    The first step is always the most difficult. Be proud for taking it.

    P.S. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by OAGJ.
