Wanting to Feel Normal Again

Monday, July 04, 2011

I am having such a hard time. I just want to feel normal. Every day there is an issue and I can't recognize what I'm doing until my husband points it out. I'm so worried about getting help though. I feel that if people find out when I start going to therapy, they'll treat me different. Like I'm some crazy lady who had a miscarriage. I don't want that. But I want to be myself again. The happy self.

    I too put myself into therapy.... 7 1/2 YEARS of going to see a counselor. There is NOTHING to be ashamed of. It takes GREAT COURAGE to do what you are doing!!! I knew if I didn't at the time I was going to hurt either myself or my children, and I LOVED them to much to do that.

    So.. I went 2- times a week for about a month, then 1 per week for about 6 months or about, then 2 per month for a very long time, then 1 per month, then whenever I needed to talk for a bit till none. It saved my sanity and made me mentally healthier!

    It was the hardest thing I have ever done, and I would not wish it on anyone. BUT I am VERY glad that I did the hard work!!!!!!

    Stick with it, it will be a GIFT you give to yourself, and your family will be much healthier for it.

    Be patient with yourself, you are so worth it!!
