The short version of my woes is that I’ve been suicidal my entire life, was in an extremely abusive relationship for two years, and have only had abusive relationships since, I have attempted suicide many times and have recently found a therapist who is actually helping after having been to multiple who asked why I was still alive. I want to get better and have started to, but I can’t afford to continue going. I was hoping to get help financially so I can get better and learn to enjoy life.
I am really glad to not be stressed about financing my therapy – it is something I really need and since starting to work with the Overt Foundation it’s been great.
In my first sessions we were able to talk about what was most harrowing on my mind at the time. Self care has been good for me.
I’ve been able to have some really good sessions with my therapist. We’ve been able to talk more about my past. There’s been more ups and downs lately but I’ve been able to learn more about myself and how my brain works, which has been helpful in changing how I treat myself
My last session was wonderful, we went over things and had a cool down before we ended so I wasn’t in crisis. I’m okay but it is hard to relive certain things but I’m proud of who I am and what I’ve done to prevent things from reoccurring.
Now that I am towards the end of my time with the Overt foundation, I discussed with my therapist what happens next after these sessions end. I’ve been feeling a lot better, more healthy, and my depression has been better than average. I feel good about my progress and my life post therapy sessions and I hope to continue to do well.
I am not in crisis and am living a fairly normal life. Progress is scary and things were rough at the beginning and it was slow starting out, but I am feeling a lot better. I know that it is a never ending story and journey but I’ve made a lot of progress.
