    Therapy

    After years of pretending to be ok and failing I have been persuaded (by people who care about me) to have therapy. I am going to see a CBT trained therapist weekly at the moment. It is interesting, I have only had two sessions and while I am getting better at recognising problems I haven't learned really how to fix them haha. So it kind of feels worse, but at least I have the sense that I am 'on it'. There is a relief at least in looking under the rug (that I have been sweeping shit under) and acknowledging what is there. Anyone else have experience with therapy? Good or bad? Or would like to try it?

    Therapy

    Thanks @fox it is good to know I am not alone! It is wonderful, and fascinating and horrible at the same time. Therapy makes you more aware but it also makes life more difficult. I realise I have spent a lot of time trying to be very accommodating, and deep down I want to change that and be more assertive. But also you worry that the people who love you won't love you (as much / in the same way / at all) if you are less accommodating. Also it means you are less fluffy and even a bit of an asshole at times. It is hard to maintain healthy boundaries and not be a bit of a dick on occasion... especially if it is new to you. So I have this inner war, and also some fears.

    Supernatural has just announced that Season 15 will be the last. I think it deserves its own tribute thread.

    Supernatural

    It is my favourite long running show tho I admit I lost track of it recently, because we don't have it on TV and we have to download it. I am not sure what season we got to but it felt like they had reached a point where they couldn't find ever eviller and badder enemies and so they were just alternating between Sam, Dean and Castiel being in danger / possessed or dead. Or maybe I just got confused. I still love it though and I am going to get caught up before the final season.

    Do you have a blog at the Northlands - promote it here? I have just started a new blog called "Rattlepapanna" - it is an audio blog and I made my first post today. It's a bit long sorry - I will ramble less next time.

    Just saw this and got really excited because I thought you have a shower journal! I was like OMG a shower journal - I just got a shower speaker, and now I need a shower journal. But yeah... there's a comma. So NVM.

    That is exactly where I am. I want more but I am so grateful for this I won't jeopardise it by clinging and whining. Know that inside I'm clinging and whining tho. 😍

    FYI "HEY THERE ARE FUCKING ROCKS" caused unseemly chortling on public transport. I hear ya @fox. Uninvited rocks and invited fishes are in no way comparable and I fear had I experienced what you described I would have been sorely tempted to mutiny and leave the captain stranded on the aforementioned rocks with EXTREMELY limited provisions.
