One definition of therapy on is

any act, hobby, task, program, etc., that relieves tension.

I believe in therapy, pet therapy, psychotherapy, any and all of the above. We all need to be able to express our feelings in a healthy and effective manner.

Little Miss does just fine expressing hers. :)
Traditional therapy where I would disclose my feelings to a therapist would not necessarily work for me. I would be too uncomfortable and would be completely preoccupied with the impression I was setting forth.

It seems odd to think that I'm more comfortable sharing my feelings with over forty people a day versus one, but, in this case, it's true. This blog serves as my therapy. It's a much more effective tool for me. I'm able to process what I am going through. I can say something and if I'm not clear, I can delete and try again. I can write at my own pace and if I want to bawl my eyes out while I'm typing, then so be it...there is no one present to judge me and so my feelings are raw and real. There is no pressure for me to say the "right" thing because I don't have to press publish until I'm ready.

I'm grateful to you, who have chosen to come along on this journey with me; I never expected that so many would be all that interested in my daily dialogue. I am overwhelmed by the continuous love you have given me. Thank you for reading and encouraging me as I participate in my daily therapy; I truly do feel like I have an army fighting along side of me.

"I write first for myself as a therapeutic process, to get stuff out and to deal with it."
