Overwhelming the Professionals

I went to my first session with a new therapist yesterday and it all came down to one fact: I overwhelmed her. How do I know this you ask? At the end of the session, she rubbed her hand across her tired looking face as she said she needed me to write down everything I want to work on and in order of severity. What had I just done for the past hour? I saw her take notes; was she just writing herself a grocery list? Am I really that far out there that I make a professional go, 'Wow, hold on a min'? Compared to my past, I thought it was all pretty tame. Oops, I guess not. This is all somewhat humorous but probably leans more to the side of disturbing. If I overwhelmed someone who has made a career out of listening to people's problems all day... um ya.


  1. I just wanted to say that I enjoy your blog. I think it's really cute and I love that you are honest. I'm not a huge fan of the "mommy mormon" blogs that are all smiles and happiness. The fact is life is hard. And most find that it gives you tons of Lemons.. and what if you are tired of making Lemonaide?! ;) We all have struggles, and I think your blog is awesome.
