HEATED STONES

Question Of The Week 6-2-16

Have you ever undergone therapy of any sort? 

Blogger Lynn said...
Yes - after my best friend died of breast cancer in 1993 (at age 29) and about the same time, my boyfriend broke up with me in a rather cruel way. I was sort of walking around shell-shocked and another good friend suggested I talk to her father's good friend, who was also a therapist. Because of the personal connection, I got to see him at his home. He was in his mid-70s and still practicing part-time. We would walk his garden and he would make me a cup of tea - it was a gentle therapy that worked for me and I became a much stronger person for it.

Many times. I have major depressive episodes, and because of my heart, I can't take most anti-depressives. The first time I was in therapy was after being treated for breast cancer. The woman was young. She was not very nurturing and didn't understand the impact of a stage 3cancer diagnosis. She wasn't much help. The last time I was in therapy, it was with a gentleman who was my age. He picked up on the problem and was very helpful.

I did when I tore my rotator cuff. Not fun but I eventually learned enough to do it my self. Also completed Cardiac rehab which was great in making me realize I wasn't as fragile as I thought and could exercise quite a bit.

Physio after a torn rotator cuff at work, like Arkansas Patti says, not fun, but I still do some of the exercises on my own when my shoulders begin to ache.

No, but I think I might need physical therapy in the future. My knees are shot from running in my youth.

Silly me fell down a Hatch (Unintentionally) Result was Broken left leg and right foot and arm. Fotunately my head was still there when I awoke.

Oh my goodness yes. Hundreds of hours of talk therapy of various sorts. I only ever had one therapist who genuinely helped me, by gently but firmly challenging me. She helped me through leaving my first husband. Then she got cancer and suddenly (understandably) dropped all her clients. I never found anyone else worth the time I spent with them. (And in the end, nothing beats Paxil!) ;-)

  13. Yes - after my mother died. We were just talking - I was telling the therapist about a dream I had and had a meltdown. She said I'd be alright now - and I was.
