Have any fish here gone through therapy after a breakup? Broke up with my ex 6 months ago (4yr relationship) but still not in a healthy headspace over the situations I’ve never done therapy before, but my company pays for 5 free sessions so I was thinking I might as well seek out professional help. Any advice is helpful thanks!

I did after a particularly bad break up and I think it helped. It was nice having someone to talk to about what I was feeling without any judgment. I also learned some good coping mechanisms. I would definitely recommend it

This is awesome, glad to hear it helped you! I think I’ll definitely try it out. Hope you’re doing well A1!

I started therapy to deal with some relationship issues that keep repeating in new relationships (I know it’s me) and I love it. I was very skeptical in the beginning and I would def go for it in any difficult situation! Also I found my amazing therapist on Alma and only have a $20 copay. So, try the first 5 sessions free and maybe you even find a good deal through insurance to continue if needed

Yes, it has almost been 2 years and I still get waves of sadness/anger about the breakup. I’ve been in therapy for a year now. It takes time. Be gentle on yourself.

It’s fun to hangout with my boyfriend but he’s really stingy. He makes a lot money and he likes to remind me of it, however, he also likes to imply that I should not depend on him for money and how much he spent on me so far (we only met a month ago, the most expensive date is prob a nice dinner and I never ask him for anything). Is it worth it to discuss it with him? I like him a lot but the idea of going out with him is making me feel uncomfortable now.

Since people are exercising freedom to be unvaxxed, should the govt put an end date on the vaccine being free for adults, with reasonable exceptions of course?

Maybe for two months post full FDA approval keep it free for anyone that gets 1st dose, then start charging & donate the vaccines from those that don't want them overseas. Helping the rest of the world get vaccinated helps us limit variants instead of begging people here to get vaccinated that have made it clear they are uninterested.
