It took me five months to find a therapist. Had my second session today and she helped me so much.

Could you share more details of how she helped? I went to a therapist a few times. The act of acknowledging that I had anxiety and talking it aloud with someone helped. But beyond that, I felt like I could talk to a friend and get the same benefit. Wasn’t sure how else the therapist is supposed to help. So trying to understand your experience so maybe I will give it another shot.

Congratulations OP for getting on the road to uncover who you really are so you can start healing yourself :)

Don’t give up!! I eventually went to one for anxiety after 3 years and didn’t realize how much just talking about my thoughts out loud helped me realize I was capable of controlling them. It takes time but you are on the right path. Don’t let anything get in the way of you figuring that out
