I swear somebody down the line decided musicals were 'uncool' and I'm sure that 90% of people who say that secretly like them and just won't admit it!

Deanna Troi was totally my childhood inspiration to become a therapist. She made being sensitive to other people's feelings seem cool, and unlike me NOBODY MADE FUN OF HER.

My conscious brain recognizes that but fear monger brain is like WHAT IF YOUR SEX DRIVE GOES AWAY AND NEVER COMES BACK BLARGH DON'T EVEN RISK IT so.....hmmm. Maybe I need to re-evaluate which brain I listen to.

I get this rollercoaster too and it is evil. I don't have a mirena but I'm also hesitant to take birth control pills because - my sex drive! Don't leave me! I'd rather have the mad horny week than no horniness at all. I've had some relief from the pain by taking vitamins, calcium and magnesium, B12 and iron, but the hating and gritting teeth to prevent unleashing it on unsuspecting victims? I am open to suggestions!

Ooh, just discovered the toastie twitter spreadsheet. I don't want my toast handle linked to my twitter, but I'm gonna go on a following rampage. If someone follows you who's been tweeting about transphobia in wicca, that's me!

I'm going to start lifting! Got my barbell all ready, now I've just got to make a plan.

Also: reviewing the role that guilt plays in my life and being conscious of how/when I'm feeling guilty.

Also also: I'm buying new glasses, not because I need them but just because I really want a funky pair.

What! Thinking of anyone as 'too good' for therapy is not a great starting point for someone who wants to be a therapist. I'm studying psychotherapy at the moment and we are required to be in therapy throughout. I'm talking, 5+ years. It's meant to be for our own wellbeing, so we have a venting point for the stresses and emotional overload of training and talking to clients. Plus, a good therapist should be VERY familiar with his or her own skeletons, so that their reactions to clients make more sense to them. If you know what I mean. If he won't go for his wellbeing, tell him to get his butt to a therapist for the sake of his career at least!

I find it really odd that someone whose job it is to relate to a client talking to them wouldn't give therapy a whirl...at the very least to have some idea what it's like to be on the other side of the chair?
