A lot of change…

Again, it has been a while since I've written. I think the last I checked in, it was on the J thing (me trying to persuade her to have me for individual). Her first response was via phone, so I couldn't share that. But, after some deep soul searching I realized what I needed from [...]

Broken Heart

Well, J called me yesterday at 1:30PM and told me that she didn't think it was ethical to agree to be my individual therapist. I expected that to be the answer but I had hope that she would be different. My heart is broken. She is just another person, in a string of people, who [...]

New Developments in Group

So, I went to group last night, even though I've literally been sick about this whole thing. I'm glad I went though because things have taken an interesting turn. We all walk in and take our seats. Both J and L are there. First thing, L tells us that due to the concerns raised about [...]

I was definitely skeptical of her for a while. But, she is starting to grow on me. I've still asked J (my group therapist, who is leaving [...]
