I have my first visit with a new therapist today. She was recommended by the therapist H and I saw together. I hope to get some help sorting out my feelings about staying or leaving M. I'll need all of you as sounding boards, too. I'm so thankful I found you and that we are here to support each other and make each other laugh.

Speaking of laughing, you all have to read the Sweet Potato Queens books. I have been listening to the audiobook versions and they are hilarious. Of course, I'm southern, so it helps to be able to laugh at yourself. I think anyone would get a hoot out of Jill Browne, though. Let me know if you've read any of her books and what you think.

i hope you had a good therapy session..and just remember that the therapist should guide you to be able to explore yourself...but should not make recommendations beyond that...you need to make the decisions for yourself.....*hugs*

Thinking of you Mermaid, and we Are here, too - to listen and offer support and advice.

I do agree with Molly regarding your therapist guiding you rather than suggesting - it is ultimately your decision.

I haven't read the books you mentioned, but I do believe it's good to be able to laugh at oneself. Laughter is a good therapy too!

Best of luck, dear.
