Thank you therapy! :)

Therapy has changes my life that was so filled with scarey thoughts haunting me from the past, keeping me from being with me. Keeping me repressed, keeping me at an arms length from people that I could never ever trust, leaving me not even realizing that I am was unhappy and was hiding from life.

Now I am talking my @ss off to people, looking forward to seeing people so I can talk some more! LOL I enjoy doing activities that make me happy and being around other people other than my DH and kids. I am getting in physical shape, laughing, smiling a lot, and just so happy. :)
Why doesn't my DH like me anymore? Well my T says that my DH needs to either sh*t or get off the pot and notice me and be my DH because I will leave him in my sad dust. All that is missing in my live is a DH that wants me to be his wife, and a part of his life.

My T says that my marraige problems has a silver lining, that the fact my marriage was not giving me the happiness it once did, it pushed me outside the world to find my own happpiness with myself. I guess I just want it all. But I guess without therapy I wouldn't even know that there was much more in life to discover! Thank you therapy!

 

I think I get it now! LOL

Yes, I think my T is such a neat person, he is. But I don't feel so attached to him as a T . He is just a normal guy that I know, with normal problems just like all of us, that offers me advice just like a long time close friend. But he isn't a real friend, I pay him for his advice, his professioanl services. It doesn't make him any less special because I am sure he is a great friend to others in his life that don't pay him. But I realize that my relationship with him is filled with boundries, different boundries that you would have for close friends. The theraputic relationship seems less fufilling to me than a real friendship in real life. But he will always be special to me and I will never forget his kindness and the help he gave me, and for putting up with me. A part of him will always be inside of me! :)

 

Is my happiness annoying you all?

I am sorry if I am. I just want to let all my babble friends that you can achieve happiness too. I am so glad I went to therapy. I feel it was a success. But I guess If I read this months ago, I would tell that person to go jump in a lake. So I understand, but please hang in there! You all know my past, and if I can do it, so can you! :) I am going to stick around for a long time to help all those who was so wonderful in helping me and supporting me while I was going through my therapy hell. :)

No no, not annoying! It's quite a thought that someone has been to therapy to do what we all want to accomplish, and it actually happened!!!

I am glad for you. You are definitely a success story. I know how much hard work you've put into this and you deserve to be happy.

How much longer will you see your T? Or are you done?

Thanks Messa! We haven't talked termination yet, because it is to me, he is trusting me to tell him when I think he isn't helping me much as a therapist. But we have gone from every 2 weeks to now once a month. If I need to see him before that, he can usually fit me in in a couple days notice. I feel like, with the exception of my marrige problems, my other issues are dealt with sucessfully. So I feel kinda done almost. LOL

Your happiness is not at all annoying, at least to me. I think it's great that someone can show how much they have benefited from therapy. There are a lot of people on this board who wonder if it's doing any good, so it's nice to hear a success story now and then. Your story definitely resonates with me because I was a depressed anorexic person with few friends, and now I am so happy and have so many friends that I actually feel like my social life is diminishing my productivity as a graduate student. That's a switch! And another great thing is that I don't care nearly so much about what people think of me. That's so freeing! I can just be me.

So go on, be yourself. Be happy!

It's not annoying me, either. We know you've worked for it and it's nice to know people do get better. The down side of support forums is that people who no longer need it drift away, leaving behind the people who are struggling. So it's good to have you telling about positive things
