I'd Like You To Meet My Therapist

May I introduce you to my therapist - 'menopausal mumma' is her name.

The other night my son in law, who incidentally has been staying with us for a couple of weeks while he and my daughter and grand-daughter find a house, was walking past and saw I was on the computer. I was posting my Chocolate blog, he asked what I was doing and so I told him. His comment was "I think you need a therapist!". He said this in a fun, joking way so no offense was taken.

The thing is that this blog is like my therapist and the best part is it is free.

Here I can say what I like, within reason as I wouldn't truly like to offend anyone, but I can freely write about how I feel and I find the posts I write about my pain and such actually give me a sense of relief. I don't always want to admit to others how I really feel, and while I know now that some people are actually reading this blog, it still feels in some ways as if I am doing it anonymously.

I suppose to that the feedback I receive in the way of comments is also a soul-boosting event for me. I welcome the fact that someone takes the time to read and comment.

So I feel that I will continue to use my therapist for some time to come.

  1. I can fully understand why you use this blog as a therapist and it should certainly help you. I heard an expert say once that if something is upsetting you, no matter what, it is a good idea to put it all on paper and then screw up the paper and throw it in the bin. Same idea....get rid of it out of your system. Share it...don't bottle it up inside where it will only fester and make you ill both mentally and physically.
    Several years I had this advice and found it did help to write how I felt in a letter although I never posted it. Just to put feelings on paper is great so keep it up.
