I just got back to my office after my first ever official therapy session, which seems a bid odd to say considering the title of this blog. Ha! Clearly my “cheap version” isn’t quite hacking it anymore… no offense bloggie friends. 😉
Charlie and I actually met for a quick lunch first, which was really nice, and then I walked over to the therapist’s office and we talked (err…I cried) for 90 minutes straight. So far I really like her. I basically just talked and talked and gave her a broad overview of the issues in my life right now, and she gave me a few tips and things to think about and ways to approach conversations with my husband. We are meeting again in a couple of weeks to touch base again.
I had actually also scheduled an appointment with the male therapist in the town 30 minutes away for next Tuesday, but I think I’m going to cancel it for now and stick this out for a bit and see how it goes. It’s super nice to have it be a 2 minute walk from my office, and so far I like her. Fingers crossed that this is the start of me feeling less overwhelmed and sad with my life.
In the meantime, I’m investing in Kleenex.
