Maybe it makes you feel uncomfortable because when people post more about their therapy it gives more insight into who they are- so they seem to be an actual person, rather than just a cyber-name?
I guess it's so difficult to trust and get to know people these days, especially when we're all just anonymous typists at the other end of a computer- so when someone posts more in-depth stuff about themselves, they become more 'real'?... if that makes any sense, (I'm rambling, arent' I?)

I don't say much about my therapy, because I don't have a T- (for financial restrictions at the moment) and my relationship with the last one was not good.
I'm doing my best to work on issues by myself, with the help of self-help and new age books... and when really bad bouts of depression come, I don't know quite how to deal with it.
I don't like to post here about it too much, because I feel like I'm trying to get answers from others who are struggling too, and I feel guilty about that... like I'm spreading my poison around even more dragging others down, and that's not fair.

Maybe that's why I just usually post platitudes- often I'm sitting here crying into my keyboard, (not good for the keyboard, either- it makes it stick :-0 !) but I would feel even worse if I were to dump it onto someone else who is having a bad day of their own.

I don't know- just my thoughts.

I hated therapy, actually. So frustrating... I did so want to get somewhere, and she just seemed to not have a clue how to go about it, and was really vague. I gave up after 6 months... I'd have been better off buying a couple of crystals and some St.John's Wort, to be honest. :-}
