Talk therapy is a big part of my treatment plan. I can’t go without it. I know medication is a necessity for me, but I need my therapist. I need cognitive behavioral techniques, and I need coping skills. It’s a struggle for me to simply function some days. Lots of days.
Every time I leave my therapist, I feel so much lighter. He is amazing. I don’t know how he does it, but he seems to know the exact right thing to say, the thing for me to think about, to feel better. I could never do this on my own.
