The Importance of Taking Time Off – My Brain's Not Broken

Making Adjustments and Moving Forward – My Brain's Not Broken

Something I expect in life is that unexpected things happen all the time. This isn’t an indication that anything big has happened lately, but the most recent unexpected thing is that I need to find a new therapist (scream at insurance for ruining another good thing).

The Persistence of Negative Thoughts – My Brain's Not Broken

I don’t always like to start my posts with “this week in therapy,” but … this week in therapy, I’ve absently pointed out that my negative thoughts have been more present lately. When I think about my negative thoughts, I don’t really see them as something to get rid of right now. They are here,…
