So I asked my motorcycle buddy (who is also a Psychiatrist) for a good recommendation on a therapist. The focus being Me and my Couple / Romance dilemmas.
I had never been to a psychotherapist. He really recommended a good one as far as I am concerned.
I had absolutely no idea what to expect.
All keep the discussion stuff to myself not to dilute the progress I made in 90 minutes (yeah I stayed an extra half hour).
Just mention that I went in feeling all torn in two pieces and obsessed about what to do or not do and I walked out of there with a better understanding, clear vision.
For analogy, I would say if my brain/heart were a pair of glasses, then when I walked in I had grease and stuff on the lenses and when I walked out I had clear lenses. Still going to the same place, still same me, and still the same people in my life, and the problems / dilemmas.
The difference is as the song says I can see clearly now.
Of course, 90 minutes with a psychotherapist is not a magic one shot cure. I made an appointment for next week too.
Life is going on and I may not even be close to resolution or even the storm may be approaching . . .
All the same, I FEEL better because I can SEE better if that makes any sense.
And yes and for sure, I will say it again. I am responsible and it is me making the decisions.

brian: My dog went to jail once... she got out, ran to a neighbors house, and they called the police. They came and picked her up and took her to the station instead of the pound. The cops found me plastering the neighborhood with Lost Dog signs.

misssunnybunny: Anyone else having trouble uploading images? I've tried on Safari, Firefox, Chrome. The image thing keeps telling me that jpg is invalid/not supported file format, and I know I've uploaded plenty as jpg images in the past.

petrushka: I'll give it a shot and see ...

petrushka: no rejection experienced, misssunnybunny - I can only conclude that maybe your jpg is corrupt, or maybe your connection was a bit wonky

tamara68: I had that problem too @missunnybunny, my jpg surely was not currupt but maybe too big. I have just tried with a small image and that worked.

misssunnybunny: I was able to post pictures yesterday. I'm not sure what the problem was, it just started working again. Ah, technology!
