Finally went to couseling today. I'd been putting it off for awhile thinking I could manage SA myself but things had been especially rough lately. My University offers it free for all students so and it couldn't hurt right.?

I think the session went we'll. The session was mainly introductory with answering alot of questions and forming a plan of treatment. It was good get some things of my chest and someone to talk to. The counselor seemed very open and understanding. I was suprised at how much I cried when I started to talk about my issues there must be alot of sadness inside. We are going to start meeting every week and he's optimistic about my progress and potential. I really think this is what I needed, med's didn't do much for me. Hopefully it will continue to go well, wish me luck! :D

The counselor sounds terrific, and FREE! Can't beat that. The tears were probably therapeutic for you. :hs

Glad to hear it went well!

I cried so much my first time I could barely talk. It takes so much trust to talk about this stuff. And when the therapist is understanding, it is such a comfort/relief. Life still sucks, but someone understands.

:) ... Then you find out there's a Web site with message boards where you read about all kinds of people who know what you're going through! How cool is that? This place is so cool.
