Is therapy about family helpful?

hi FJ folks, I was wondering if anyone here has gone through therapy specifically to deal with processing how they grew up and the relationship with other family members (NOT family therapy). Did it go well? Did it help you?  [possible TW for self-harm] I'm beginning to realize that there were parts of my childhood that were really neglectful and somewhat abusive. I have a lot of issues with my mom because she doesn't know how to put up boundaries (for anything, ever). I felt my pare

Part 1 (First Brushes with Fundamentalism)

Largely, I have been writing down my experiences as a sort of catharsis, but also on the off chance my experiences might resonate with others out there. I've spent the last ~8 years of my life thinking, processing, healing, reconciling over (etc, etc) the happenings in my childhood, how I got where I am, the whys of it. And now...I want to be done with it. It will always be part of my history but I don't want to cross into the territory of not being able to let go and living in wallowing of self

Feeling Down

I don't know how to deal with people.  I know I am an introvert, and I've always been on the shy side (though it's hard to tell what is my natural personality vs what my parents and religion WANTED me to be). But I really feel completely, totally exhausted when interacting with people.  Being shy, meek, with a soft voice - this is not a recipe for being taken seriously. I've tried doing a lot of work in being more assertive, appearing more confident (I feel pretty confident most of the ti

I'm Not A Doll

I hadn't seen my parents in weeks. We've been staying away from each other since even before the COVID-19 lockdown as they are in the vulnerable age bracket. My mother texted me, insisting she come over. "That's not the greatest idea," I said, but she wanted to drop some things off. I approached her van and she gasped. "Meep! You have gray hairs! I can really see them in the sunlight!" I've had gray hair for a while, much to the shock of my parents, who luckily never went gray until well into th

Homeschool: My Pros and Cons List

I've been to private school, public school, and homeschool. I never thought much of it but now being older, I realize that it's a bit unique to have experienced it "all." I figure I would make a pros and cons list based on my experiences. My experiences - that is a big flaw itself, right? Private schools are very different from one another. Public schools can be totally different worlds from each other. And obviously homeschools can be DRASTICALLY different. So take these lists with a grain of s

      I spent an hour this morning at a cat cafe.  All but two of the cats there are available for adoption.  I needed a bit of kitty time and it was a wonderful way to get it in.  I miss my spook but I’m not ready to take a new at on quite yet.  Granted, on juvenile cat of a Siamese sort crawled into my lap three times and it is very tempting to snatch him up.  
       
      I also donated leftover, unopened cans of the Rx k/d (kidney care) cat food the rescue.  I had contacted the, a week or so back.

      It's happened.  I've lost all pleasure in food.
      I still eat every day, still eating clean...I just no longer enjoy eating anything.  It's just fuel.
