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.
