I finally realized that no one's health is perfect. I used to think I had everything or would get everything and everyone else's health was so perfect. But of course that's not true. Long story, but I also started to believe some of my health is really in my hands and under my control. Not all of it, of course. But I can do the best I can for myself and for the family. I want to see my kids have kids!
So, you need to do everything you know you should be doing for your health, and that also means your mental and emotional health. Therapy includes a lot of different things so I hope you do find that the psychologist is a good choice for you.
Don't let yourself be paralyzed by the past. Put it in its place and don't let it control your life. Speak to a person you trust, whether family, the psychologist or clergy, about
your fears and emotional devastation about
your dad. But try to see how you need to live your life in a positive way and take care of yourself.
You'll be ok. Just take care of your health and your doctors' appointments one day at a time.
And come and post anytime!
