    Frustrated With Therapy

    I feel for you and your situation, I would find a different therapist based on the 3 comments as they are not compatible with the type of therapist I need. How however it sounds like that kind of therapist might work for others. I would have been offended by the hiding behind a disability when...

    Friends that want you to stay sick

    Dealing with friends from the past

    Thank you Gia, I guess for me it is hard for me that my past friends don't see the changes I have made. I have tried to make amends but it isn't easy. Sometimes i think I should just move on and meet new people who haven't experienced my past anger. That will see for who I am now.
