Doing better
A few of you noticed when I returned to TTA. I'm doing a bit better now. I'm not great, but I"m, well, not-as-bad. I found the only non-church-based psych place here and qualified for a few sessions. It's technically mostly a substance abuse clinic, but they do take other types of clients. My therapist is a great woman named Taylor. I had the option of choosing the one who did my intake, but Taylor is a Ronda Rousey fan and likes Star Wars. (We're not huge SW geeks, but like it.) She also knows I'm not offended by vulgar language, so she doesn't have to hold back.

As much as I don't like meds, I'm on some again. I'm still worried about long-term effects, but for now, they're helping me head off some feelings. I still horribly worry about certain things. Last week I had a bad relapse but as I told Taylor, I feel like I was better able to see it. I've had some really bad side effects, so I've had to go up and down with the dosage. So for now I'm just seeing how it goes.

I probably won't go into deep detail about what I'm discussing with her, but she seems to help me see where I need to fix things.

I'd like to thank you for caring. Good or bad, funny or serious, it helped. I don't think I can put it into words. I don't know if I'll be great again or if I'll ever stop worrying, but at least I'm getting help. Even made a few jokes.

Trying to get back to the old Clockwork that many haven't seen in a long, long time.

RE: Doing better
I am so happy to see you back around here again and also am happy that you found somewhere to get the help you need.

You were missed but I understand that taking care of yourself is what's most important.

I, too, look forward to seeing more of the old Clockwork.

RE: Doing better
Nobody ever gets back to "their old self".....

You just get to a point where your current self is at peace with past, current and future self.......

You can't make past or future self better - you can only make current self better.

When you do that - the rest sorta just falls into place.

...

Welcome back..

The difference between prayer and masturbation - is when a guy is through masturbating - he has something to show for his efforts.

Hang in there. Maybe we'll have a new, improved Clockwork. Thumbsup

That would be A Clockwork Orgy.

Glad you're doing better, keep it up. ... Hey, I think that's a line from that movie. Gasp

Thinking of you.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Or would it be an Einsteinian Relatively Speaking Clock?

Good to see you back.

You missed the Skype chat by a few hours but no worries, there'll be another one. Or you can host one, at your convenience.
