Post Hiatus

I have taken a hiatus from this blog/ forum mostly because I felt so discouraged...I went to therapy and it was an introductory session so a lot of questions about my life and past. I felt like the therapist wanted me to come up with my own conclusions about my "issues." The session was way too expensive for what was accomplished so that is unsustainable for me. Back to square one. I have another option, which is when I start college in about a month I have access to the therapist there. Possibly another route to answers. I'm seriously starting to wonder if self-diagnosis is the best choice for me since I am not filthy rich. ha

Comments

I've learned some of the best therapy hasn't come from paid therapists, but from others who simply are open to sharing their feelings and thoughts. I think therapy is important in certain things, I had to go for a few years dealing with PTSD issues, but most the time I find sharing with others who have common interests and issues helps the most. It's kind of a hit and miss for most of the therapists I've dealt with. Hard to open up with complete strangers, and never cared for the initial "getting to know you" mumble jumble.
