OOH welcome to my world!! If I had a dollar for everyone who said "YOU NEED PSYCHIATRIC HELP" I would be rich. As I move into my own life away from my abusive, controlling, alcoholic growing up home, I find that I"m a pretty normal, sane, decent, relaxed human being. I have a pretty strong startle reflex, and very short anger-fuse, but who the hell could blame me growing up in that chaos????

We didn't really talk about my problems, we talked about ME and what I did with my days. When I left his office, I felt like I HAD a life story.
The person isn't the problem, the 'problem' is the problem.

That therapist realised just that.
