Oh, Hey! It’s Alyssa #60: Therapy

I need to go to heckin' therapy. I'm fine and everything... going to therapy doesn't mean "not fine..." ... and "not fine" doesn't mean "bad" anyway. It's just been a long time, and I know it'd be a good thing. I need to carve out some space for myself... ... and maybe I just need a good cry, a solid laugh or a grand epiphany in a place that isn't my shower.

  1. I can’t recommend therapy enough. It has helped me so much, beyond what I was expecting. If you think you can’t afford it, try looking up your local LGBTQ Center. Most offer therapy on a sliding scale and will work with your budget.

  2. Oh yes, the Shower Epiphany !

    The small enclosed space, the steam, the white noise, a glorious echo chamber to let go in but, that’s just it, it’s an echo chamber.

    And showering with your therapist just wouldn’t work… Would it ?
    That would be some bold therapy trend for sure.
