As with all of my posts that speak in detail about my various diagnoses, treatments, and medications, I must state that these experiences are my own and yours might be completely different. I’m not a doctor and I strongly advise that you seek the help of a psychiatrist and/or therapist to figure out what treatment plan is best for you. Please see my disclaimer for more information about what I share on this site.

A Few Notes About This Post

I decided to focus this post on the relationships with my therapists rather than what we did during our sessions because including both would have made this post wayyyy too long. If you’re interested in hearing what exercises and techniques I’ve tried and learned in therapy like EMDR, Brain Spotting, breathing techniques, etc., let me know and I will write a post about that, too.

In this post, I mention getting on and off antidepressants and purposely don’t expand on that because I plan to write an entire post on those experiences. I’m also working on a post about ways to find affordable therapy.

Lastly, the reason I write posts like this one is to provide thorough answers to questions I receive quite often. Answering these questions individually can become emotionally exhausting, overwhelming, and time-consuming. So, if you’ve made your way to this post because of a link I sent you in response to a private message you sent, please know that I do care and do want to help you. I am simply protecting my mental health the way I’d love for you to protect yours. If you have follow-up questions or any other topics/experiences you’d like me to write about, please don’t hesitate to ask.
