So, I’ve started seeing a therapist. It’s long overdue really. I’ve been just coasting along for the last year and a half since JP royally screwed me over emotionally and mentally. I mean, he really did a doozy on me. I seriously cannot trust a guy in any respect other than as my friend. I have no desire to be intimate in any way, shape, or form with a man. It’s not that I’m “afraid” to get involved, it’s just that I don’t feel the need or the want to get involved with anyone on that level. I am in a place of liking my singleness and liking the freedom to do as I please and not have to worry about someone else’s wants, needs or whims.
I’ve only had one session with Dr. H so far, but I have the sense that she will be able to help me with some breakthroughs. I’m really hoping she can help me get a handle on my binge eating. I really struggle with the overwhelming urges to eat junk and eat as much of it as I possibly can. She agrees with me that JP has something to do with my binge eating urges because I didn’t have this problem before I met him. She’s going to help me explore ways to soothe myself that don’t involve stuffing my face when I feel stressed in any way.
