Sometimes I feel like you're all supportive and open... except when it comes to "Daisy." *meow meow meow*
therapy
I gave up on therapy over a decade ago because I apparently bore psychologists to sleep with my problems.

therapy
Plus, win a Kindle Paperwhite and a $100 gift certificate, or a copy of "Coming Clean" by Kimberly Rae Miller!
adoption
What I got was a two page letter, obviously written by an individual whose job it is to review sealed records and extract whatever information it is legal to provide.
therapy
enneagram
I grew up in a house where horoscopes were banned, and nonfiction was the genre of choice. So personality tests, and all the crunchy-hippie-granola-hooey that goes with them? Not up my alley.
masturbation
And I'm lying to my therapist about it, so I hope he doesn't Google me.
therapy
Today's my first free Thursday afternoon in over 3 years, and it feels weird-good.

cursing
I'm a grown ass adult who shouldn't talk like a trashy teen skater who just ollied out of a rural Dairy Mart.
suicide
My race of women are supposed to be strong. But the truth of the matter is that black folks battle with suicide just as much as the next person. We just don’t talk about it much.
you are the advice columnist
What can I do? Should I come out about my mental health to HR? Should I petition to change the leave policy?
how not to be a dick
There are no awards given for most suffering during a massage.

Why I spent my birthday weekend trying to get in touch with my inner child through an experiental psychodrama workshop, despite the fact that at least 5 of the words in this sentence make me want to drive a glass shard into my throat.

depression
Even though internally I am a hot mess, on the outside my appearance is the same.
anxiety
I went to therapy once. For exactly a year. I don't think it worked.

friendships
When my friends tell me that they want to help, I totally understand what they are saying, and I love them for offering, but I kind of wish they wouldn't.
acne
This week in Acne Awareness Month I try an alternative skin treatment -- talk therapy.
friends
Most people learn trust as a child from the people raising them, but I learned to go on roller coasters on my own.
dating
Yes, it is a little atypical that my boyfriend and I don’t fight, but things have been working out so far, right?
childhood
Just as soon as you give me advice on how to do it.
