Back from therapy, feeling so much better tonight too. I forget just how understanding she actually is. She encourages me to write my feelings and thoughts out throughout the week and email them to her. She even understood when I told her that I really need her to help structure the therapy with me, I can't just go in blind because then I'll not get anything done. So we're working on goals, she thinks me working on the social anxiety primarily will be the most important thing, then a few other things on the side but whenever they come up. (Learning to accept emotions and learning how to handle them instead of detaching, learning to not be dependent on others emotionally but rather enjoy the give and takes of relationships/friendships, etc).
Productive day overall and I'm glad. She's also very sensitive and wants
us to work together when things get rough, and if we hit a topic I
can't talk about right then and there, we can move on to a different
My homework for the week is to identify as many personal triggers as I
can, especially for my anxiety. This will be a very hard week but
hopefully helpful. We touched upon a few rough moments, but we also had our fair share of funny ones too.
