The Proverbial Couch
So yesterday I went for my first appointment with my shrink. It's the second time I've been in therapy/counseling. The first time I went was back in 2001, and it was to one of those work-supplied therapists, and she was pretty okay but I only ended up going 3 times, because I just felt like I was wasting her time.
This time around, I get to go to anyone I want. So I googled "gay therapist vancouver" and found a list, and decided to go to one who is close to my work, or at least downtown. He seems nice. I babbled on about my life, he jotted down notes, and he gave me some tools to help me deal with everyday situations, so I'm hopeful this will be productive and worth it.
