Lets get serious ok?

All of you have read my other blog, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to you that I once had depression. Notice the use of past tense there? I'll get back to it. It also shouldn't be a surprise that I am in therapy - though not really for my depression, more because I was stressing out over my dad getting remarried last November. Anyways, if you didn't know those things - now you do!

On with the point of this blog post:

I tried to stop going to therapy about about 2 months ago. I'm over my dad getting remarried, he isn't stressing me out much anymore, and family life seems to have calmed down - so I talked to my therapist and we set a date for our last session the next week.

I had a full on meltdown over that weekend. (Yes, the couch/boyfriend incident.)

I decided to stay in therapy.

And therapy is good - we are addressing all my feelings about turning 30, not being married, and why I am not loving my job these days. My therapist and I agree - I'm not clinically depressed.

I'm just finding myself at a place in my life where I need a change.

A big change.

But I just don't really know what that change is going to be yet.

But, I'm just putting it out there.

I need a change.

  2. Girl, every social worker needs a therapist. I'm looking for one myself. I didn't even realize I'd have such a reaction to delving into the past that I so willingly pretend never happened. And I've sure seen depression in my day too. I'll post about it when I get there. I've been thinking about changes too. I'd love to do child therapy at some point. Love yourself... we all do :)

  5. I have a love/hate relationship with therapy, lol. My current therapist likes to tease me about firing him, because I just stopped going to my other 2 therapists.

    And I think you should move to Texas...just cause it's the best state and all ;) We could hit up Austin!!
