    [–] Attention and shame Squirrel_force 1 points ago in TalkTherapy

    I am struggling with the same thing.

    I don't know if it's true, but I heard that some people gradually get off antidepressants after using them because a hurt brain is like a sprained ankle. You need a cast of some sort that you are dependent on for a while.

    The cast eventually comes off and you no longer need it.i think therapy miht be a little like that. These feelings might only be temporary

    Is there any way to do it gradually? Also, you don't have to tell your therapist everything right away, you can take your time as more trust builds.

    Oh man, I want mine to do that too. I want to hang out and talk to her all day.

    I hear you, I didn't expect it to happen so quickly - especially since I didn't get it with my previous therapist at all.

    It does help, I hope my feelings will pass as well.

    And yeah its confusing as hell haha, my mind is so tangled up.

    Yeah, I'm going to try to do the same thing and make as much progress on my mental health as I can during these "wait times". Hopefully that will help to make our sessions as productive as possible.

    Hey you can be headed in the right direction but there might be a few bumps on the road. Don't let that discourage you or take anything away from your achievements so far. It's a natural part of the journey.

    Congrats on your progress !!

    My last therapy session left me feeling like a mess, I think it is something to do with being so vulnerable and opening up to someone. I usually keep my emotions to myself but once I open up it's like a leaky faucet and I can't turn the emotions off. I am overwhelmed with emotions and bursting into tears randomly all the time. And I am a guy.

    My next appointment isn't until over 2 weeks from now and I can't wait. Two weeks is such a long period of time...

    I both love and hate my therapist for turning me into this mushy mess. I hope I can get over this before our relationship expires in a few months otherwise I have no idea what I am going to do...

    If that happened, they would probably need a break before I would ha

    [–] Rep. Ilhan Omar: Legalize marijuana everywhere, expunge records of those jailed for pot offenses Squirrel_force 2 points ago in politics

    I believe it forbids intoxicants in general such as alcohol and other drugs as well. I don't thing Cannabis is explicitly stated to be forbidden.

    I don't know from the top of my head what part of the scripture forbids it but I did a Google search of "Islam and Intoxicants" and this is what came up: https://islamqa.info/en/answers/66227/ruling-on-taking-drugs-and-do-they-come-under-the-same-heading-as-khamr-intoxicants

    Also, I feel like I can talk to my therapist all day every day

    [–] Weekly Therapy Talk Thread Squirrel_force 4 points ago in TalkTherapy

    My therapist asked me a lot of questions and it uncovered quite a few things that weren't self-evident to me. Some of these questions were really repetitive and I wasn't sure where she was headed at all. However, she said that we were out of time and would have to wrap it up. She also said that we had made quite a lot of progress.

    As an analogy, I feel like she cut me open, poked me repeatedly in different places while asking "what does this feel like?" and then closing me up without resolving any of the issues we uncovered.

    This made me feel a little irritated and confused. I think she could tell and she asked me if I found the therapy session helpful. I avoided the question and gave some sort of B.S answer instead. I know its a bit irrational to feel irritated since we ran out of time but that's how I felt and I'm going to bring it up next time. I hope I don't offend her.

    Thanks for reading, I needed to get this off my chest.

    Yeah, generalizing millions of people as horrible because they have different views than you can't be a bad thing.

    Edit: The replies prove my point, you guys have drunk to kool aid lmao
