Things I Learned in Therapy (So Far)

January 15, 2011

1.  Mirroring For a while when things were at their worst, I attended group therapy sessions with a bunch of other depressed women.  It was just about as awful as it sounds.  I hated it, partly because sessions were held at an inconvenient time, partly because I am a control freak who prefers to lead […]

At dinner with my Philly friend, the night before my first class, we were talking about boys.  PF, who is lending me her spare room for the next two years, has been one of my best friends for going on 14 years.  She started her own battles with online dating and the quest for capital-L […]
