  1. Today is my 6th survivor anniversary. It actually just feels like a normal day. Proud of how far I've come.

      It's like a normal day? Congrats, snmls!

      Reclaiming the day is a powerful thing! You should be proud. :)

      Thank you both. It has been a long time coming. :hug:

  2. Therapy Center I go to will not be resuming in person session until January 1st at the earliest. Video sessions just aren't the same. 

  3. Had my session with my new T today. She seems nice and I think there is a chance we will work well together. But it made me fully process that my old T is gone and that made me sad. 

    1. MeBeMary

      MeBeMary

      I'm glad the new T has much potential. You deserve the best match possible.

      Sorry, you miss your old T. I'm sure you will remember and be thankful for all she has helped you with.

      :hug:

      I'm looking forward to see how my relationship with my new T unfolds. 

      I'll always be thankful for the years I spent with my old T and how much they helped change my life. 

  4. Have my first session with my new T tomorrow. A little nervous. After spending over four years with my previous T, I feel like I'm starting therapy all over again.

      Sitting with you. I think it would be normal to be a little nervous. Remember an adjustment period is ok. Hoping the new one turns out to be someone you bond well with.

      That is a step in the right direction at least, Snmls. Very happy to hear that. Just have to take the small things at times so it's not too overwhelming.

      Inner turmoils can be hard enough without all this outer chaos. It was nice to see some sense of justice being possible today going forward at least. Though it is all nowhere near enough.

  6. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Just because we are all social distancing doesn't mean we can't still participate in SAAM activities. Be extra kind to yourself this month.

  15. My T is having surgery on Friday and I won't see them again for a month.  Hoping things will be alright for me while I'm on my own.

    I did give them a get well card today during our last session before the surgery, and they really appreciated it.  It made my heart smile. 

    1. MeBeMary

      MeBeMary

      I'm sorry your T is to have surgery and will be absent from you for a month.

      I think you will be ok, tho. And if you struggle, you got this community to turn to. :hug:

  22. Going to really try to listen to my therapist's advice and limit my time on Facebook.  

    1. CrimsonRegrets

      CrimsonRegrets

      That sounds like a good idea. People on facebook can be really mean and hateful.

    2. snmls

      snmls

      Yeah, it's been really triggering for me lately because of all the hateful things people are saying about stuff going on in the news. 

    3. CrimsonRegrets

      CrimsonRegrets

      Yeah I know. I've seen some hateful things about the me too movement as well and people calling each other morons for just having a different political opinion. It's crazy.

  23. Don't forget to take care of you.
