Caution  Therapy
Sometimes I watch my 600-pound life. Tonight there was a woman who was told to deal with issues in her life.

She did acknowledge that her mother attempted SH and in her letter, she said that she hated the daughter. When working with the therapist she said it didn't bother her and she didn't want to dwell on it. She didn't want to deal with anything. Needless to say, she ended up quitting.

Prior to starting therapy did anyone encourage you? I do remember a friend telling me about a workshop for 'Adult Children of Alcoholics.' I wondered why she said that. Then it was "OMG, my father is an alcoholic!"

I think I was already in therapy at that point.

I remember telling my roommate and then another friend that I was starting therapy. Because my family was driving me crazy. Instead of being shocked they were relieved.

I cannot imagine weighing over 600 pounds and not recognizing that I needed talk therapy too. The woman is k*ll*ng herself.

RE: Therapy
my first foray into therapy was after the birth of my second child, when i had severe postpartum depression that resulted in me being hospitalized. before that i don't know if i would have sought out therapy; depression was so "normal" for me, having had it all my life, that i didn't know it was something that could be treated.

i agree that the woman on that show needs treatment; i also know that until she is ready to work on things, going to therapy will not help.

RE: Therapy
Agree Mosaic. I stumbled into depression in high school but thought I was just normally weird. I had crappy teachers who never noticed anything. Those who noticed didn't care.
