PNWguy Posted July 19, 2018 Share Posted July 19, 2018 Been seeing one for a month or so and have found it to be quite helpful. I quit smoking in February but had remained really grouchy and negative. My doc had written me a prescription for wellbutrin when I quit to help with the cravings and mood swings and I refused to take it; didn't want to take any drugs. So after a couple of months of getting worse, I had an appointment and the doc said the health center (company-ran) had just hired a "Occupational Health Therapist" and she needed new patients. She said it was free and couldn't hurt. Had probably 5 or so meetings and found it very helpful in changing thought processes to avoid negativity. I had no idea what to expect but the sessions are just talking and the therapist pointing out how thought patterns develop and making me aware of how past experiences have shaped how I view and think about things. I confirmed with her that I was not mentally ill or crazy and she laughed and said I was more healthy than probably 90% of the public. In talking with her about negative interactions with certain people, it struck me that a whole lot of people could benefit from talking to someone and being made aware of their destructive thought processes. Just wondering if anyone else here has tried therapy. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
