Do you ever find it hard to get into therapy again if you have already in the past multiple of times and somewhat feel like by now you should be better and not need anymore help?

      Eh, this stuff doesn't just disappear. Sometimes you need a little tune-up. It's okay to keep needing therapy. Unexpected stuff can tear open old wounds. It's not your fault. It's good that you want to feel better and it's good to take care of yourself. It's good to be your best, so you can be your best for your friends and loved ones. It's good that you care about yourself enough to not want to struggle.

      Yes! I had a very hard time opening up to therapists but it turns out I haven’t found the right ones. I have one now that after a few months I started to trust and now am opening up to. She is super helpful. I’ve been in therapy on and off since I was 14 and I can say I’ve had 2 that have been able to handle me. They have the knowledge and tools for what I need. Don’t give up. Everything is a process and there is no timetable that says when you should be done.

      Yes definitely know that feeling,I feel that I should have been in therapy along time ago and I should have definitely did therapy specifically for PTSD along time ago. I tried a quick exercise thing for PTSD but never went fully into it.

      It’s sometimes hard to find a true trauma informed therapist that doesn’t try you make you fit into their CBT box

      I did therapy for years until my therapist had to change jobs and I lost her. After that, every time I’ve tried to get into therapy I’ve just felt panicked and uncomfortable. Nobody is like my old therapist and I miss her. I don’t know if I’ll ever have it in me to get back in therapy again even tho I know, logically, that I need it.

      Yes. I just started again and the process was agonizing and pissed me the heck off, so much so I am calling HR on the woman who did my pre screening because when I got my report from her that I asked for (my documentation) EVERYTHING she wrote down was wrong. She didnt even care to get my Drs name correctly. I'm sorry. This comment is not very enthusiastic to get back into therapy at all. But the fact you're thinking about it at all means you should be, in my opinion. What sucks is I dont like my current therapist that I went through hell & back to get....so now I have to do it again 🤗
