    okidoki started the topic Taking the lead in therapy in the forum Trauma

    Hi. I know this is not quite a question that belongs under the trauma category, but I wasn’t quite sure where to place it. I find it so hard to take the lead in therapy and wondering if anybody has any tips to offer me. I’ll try my best to share with my therapist when she asks me a question, like I don’t usually lie, or I’ll say I don’t want to…Read More

  • I’m not sure how to title this question. But I need somebody to tell me that I’m normal. Because I truly don’t feel normal right now.  I go through times when I’m totally ok, and other times where I get so caught up in thinking about different things that happened in my childhood and just feel so angry at the people involved. Specifically certain…Read More

  • Hi. I’m wondering if anybody has any tips for sharing that I think I may be depressed with my therapist? I’ve never been diagnosed, but for a long time already I’ve been feeling very low. Ever since a challenging family situation a few years back I never fully got back to myself. And dimensional it just gets worse than other times. Even I go into…Read More

  • Hi.

    I’m not sure what my question is here exactly, I’m just realizing that as I get older the bigger problem I am having with things. The fact that I am 20 years old and I am terrified to take the next step of marriage doesn’t feel right to me. I didn’t realize how afraid I am to take this step until I was almost reaching the age. And as time…Read More

  • Has anybody had the experience where they shared something with their therapist and just felt awful after? I had a session with my therapist yesterday, and I manage to tell her something I have never told anybody.  Since then I feel so disgusting. I feel so exhausted and drained, and all I want to do is go to bed. I’m starting to regret sharing…Read More

  • Hi there.

    I am so stressed out right now. I had a session with my therapist this Tuesday, and suddenly yesterday my mother asked me if my therapist had called me because she asked my mother to come in to see her for 30 minutes,  and my mother told her to lmk so im not nervous about the whole thing. My therapist never called me, and the…Read More

  • I finally told my dad who lives in a different state than me that I do not feel comfortable coming for a visit and staying in his home being that I still live under my mother’s roof and I know she won’t be happy with it. He has been wanting me to come visit him for a while but I do not feel comfortable being around his wife, but he doesn’t…Read More

  • How do I support a good friend of mine who recently started drinking and drugs. She left town for a few months to a program and unfortunately got kicked out of the program because of certain negative behaviors that she started engaging in. So she is coming back to town soon and I’m not sure how to support her since we are friends, but also not…Read More

  • Hi there.

    I have sort of an interesting question. Well, interesting for me. I would like to hear what you guys have to say about it.

    A little over a year ago I was in a building that was on fire and had to escape. It was an electrical fire, so it all happened from one second to the next. It happened at night and I was woken up to the sound of a…Read More

  • Hi.

    I grew up in a home with divorced parents. Us children grew up with my mother. It turned out that out of my other 5 siblings I was the only one who kept up a relationship with my father. It just is a problematic relationship. Somehow I turned into my father’s mentor, therapist, parent, idk what to call it. My dad will use me to complain about…Read More

  • I had 2 siblings really struggle with mental health issues. One was in the hospital for depression for a very long time,  while another for an eating disorder.  A bit more than a year ago my sister who was struggling with an eating disorder collapsed and had a seizure, and got rushed to the hospital. I feel that ever since seeing my siblings s…Read More
