like wtf ever about the past
how do we deal with this shit

<<< THIS. Like all my therapy always ended up like "ugh this thing is happening. How do?" And my therapist would be like, "Well, lets look at it this way. Lets reason this out. Lets process this current thing that is happening or needs to happen." and through that I learned the tools to be able to do that myself, in a way. So basically her role was to walk me through and train me in how to do that kind of external talk processing internally.



Hana was talking today about her new therapist in skype, and this was my response. Talk therapy for me didn't really help much with my anxiety or depression - that shit is all chemical for me. But what therapy did do was to help me learn coping skills to better help myself process my emotions. That, COMBINED WITH, medication really helped me get a handle on what I needed to do to be self-reflective and do the self work I needed to use my emotional crazies productively and not let them hurt me or hold me back.

It's an ongoing battle, and some days I lose it - but I'm getting better and better every day, and the therapy I did in high school set some really solid foundations for me to do unassisted self work later on.

Anxiety sucks. I can relate to people that struggle with anxiety related health issues. For me, talking helps. That being said, everyone's anxiety is different and solutions vary. For me, social interaction helps immensely.

I gave up on therapy for myself but now I gotta sign my son up because his school recommends it. I keep going back & forth on my feelings about it. It never helped me but maybe it will help him. He's been thru a lot lately starting school, his grandpa died, he got a new dad & baby sister we put his favorite dog down and now we're selling the only home he ever knew. Its a lot I know, but none of it could be helped. Any moms wanna help with input? Am I wrong for being indecisive?

I would do it. If he's open to the idea, frame it as "This is a person who has a lot of tools that can help you." Therapy ISN"T going to work if he doesn't think anything is wrong, it's just flatly not going to - but if he's at least a little bit open minded then it could really, really help.

I know it really helped me, not just temporarily, but long term. <3 Mom to mom, I would definitely suggest trying it out.

It's not wrong to be indecisive - but keep in mind that just because it didn't help you doesn't mean he won't get anything out of it. I mean, really, there's no reason not to. <3 <3
