Well, I went to therapy on Friday and it went okay. I actually stayed for 2 1/2 hours... yea its supposed to be a 1 hour session. Luckily, I choose her last slot for the day so we end up going longer than we are supposed to!
 
Well, it was just going on like usual, until I mentioned an incident that had happened the previous week and she got really serious. She said that made her worried and that she didnt realize that I was that bad. So, I think it finally clicked with her. She made me sign a thing saying that I would be okay. If I didnt, she was going to put me on watch... I dont know. But, I signed it.
 
Then, GET THIS, she said maybe my parents should come. We laughed about it for a while cause I said they wouldnt... but I said okay and that night I had to tell my parents that they are taking my place for the next session! Lets just say....they werent too happy about that AT all! So, my parents are going to therapy! lol She is going to tell me everything they say so we can figure out just how much they do/dont know about me. In an attempt to fix things at home...which COULD make me better, but... just a theory.
 
So, it will be very interesting to see my parents go to therapy. I cant wait to find out what they say. I just hope things go okay. I graduate on May 29th and I cant wait at all... I can NOT wait to graduate. So... hopefully things will be okay until then. And then I am going on vacation to the beach so, I need some relaxing time. And I am supposed to have a psych evaluation June 4 and most likely recieve new meds, most likely a mood stabilizer and a new anti-depressent. So... we'll see how things go..

Hi Christi,

I think it is cool that your parents are going to therapy. Are you going to be there too, or is it just for them?

Let us know how everything goes. I am so curious.

Take care my friend, I hope that you have a good week this up coming week.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Christi,

Great idea....I think this will be a valuable learning experience for them and for you. Congrats on your upcoming graduation, and have fun on your vacation! :-)

Keep us posted!

They are going in my place. Maybe... dad said he wasnt going. I think cause he knows alot about me that my mom doesnt and he doesnt want to speak up about it. And my mom said she doesnt want to go because my dad will make fun of everything she says. Apparently she doesnt like talking to strangers. I told them they had to go, or she would think they were horrible parents! lol Im trying to guilt them into going.

I wont be there. I will be at home hoping that it goes smooth. She is going to tell me what they say... So, I am curious to know what they know about me, really. And, she wants to help me be able to talk to them better so... I dont know.

Lets just hope my parents actually go.... Im not sure that they will... and if they dont go, then I have too! lol so... I hope they go! We'll see!
