themechanicalcinders asked: Hello! I suffer with back pain that gets very bad now and then. Recently, I've been looking into scoliosis to see if that could be the problem but I think my spine is too straight for that. I'm not allowed to go to a doctor so I'm hoping that someone here might be able to help me? Thanks very much. (sorry to ask you guys)

Shitty therapist stories under the cut. Also, I’ve been getting asks about these scaring people off from getting therapy, and I do not want that to be the purpose for these. These are the horror stories. When you go for therapy, it might take a few tries to get the right person, but when you do, it is totally worth it. I love my current therapist to death. I’ve met my fair share of...

hierophilic asked: This is probably way off topic but I've followed this blog for quite a while, and I'm also chronically ill. To everyone who is having a really hard time, struggling with your illness, I just want to give you all hugs and good vibes, from the bottom of my heart. It's tough being sick, but at least we can all stand in solidarity with each other. Whether physical or mental illness, we...
A bunch more shitty therapist stories because everyone seems to have one, sadly, and I couldn’t let them go unshared. I’ll post more in the future, and I won’t delete them. Trigger warnings for under the cut: Suicide, Self Harm, Rape, Molestation [[MORE]]
Anonymous asked: One of my friends recommends that I should see a therapist of some kind, but the few encounters I've had with them have always been unpleasant. Based on these stories, I'm even less inclined to seek therapy -- not to mention that my family doesn't believe in therapy to begin with. What do you guys think? Is therapy actually worth it?
winkypie asked: Bad therapist stories!! My first therapist was a total nightmare. She never listened to me, and when I disagreed with her, she would turn her chair around and not talk to me for the rest of the session. Once, I came in to talk to her, and she told me I was selfish for having depression and then she broke down crying and told me I didn't have any right to be sad unless my mother had died like...
