Therapy! Yeah, um no.

I've never been one to go on a rant about "Yay! Can't wait to get on over to therapy and share my thoughts!" ...because fuck that.

I think therapy is a joke. It doesn't work for me personally. If it works for you, go therapy power, and I applaud you for taking risks.

I've been told that I didn't give it a chance...blah blah fucking blah! It's worthless to me.

And how does that make you feel?

And now...let's breathe. In---Out.

What the actual fuck?

I've been to therapy forcefully because my insurance required it if I wanted to continue to see a psychiatrist. I've been to therapy willingly. I've canceled the hell out of some therapy appointments.

I hate walking into that office and sitting on the couch only to have this person with a degree in talking stare me in the eye as if I should know where to begin and how to say it.

How about you lead the way?

How about you ask me some questions other than...How does that make you feel? 

You know where I've found the best therapy that doesn't cost me a dime?

For one, running was free therapy. I ran like a motherfucker in Florida because...below sea level. Colorado and its altitude doesn't work for my lungs.

The other is by reaching out to online communities. There's a lot of like minded people out there in social media who will become your very best friend even if you never meet them in person.

So therapy can screw off along with support groups. Support for what? You want support from me as you rant on about your loved one with a mental illness you haven't done enough research on to even understand?

Pffffft...

  1. I guess Jack didn't work out? Sorry hun. I'm glad you have this as an outlet. You're really brave to put all of this out there. Some might say you're over sharing, but for all the people suffering from mental illness who find this page...you're helping them see they are not alone. xo

    1. Jack is wonderful, but he's my psychiatrist. Here I'm talking about talk therapy specifically. Thank you for your support!!!

  2. I'm so glad I'm not the only one on the SS Fuck Talk Therapy. It never worked for me either. In fact, it just made things worse. I just wound up wanting to punch the "therapist" in the throat.
