In all my time of seeing mental health professionals, I cannot recall any of them simply saying, ” I can help you”. I have had many treatment plans, some successful and some not, but never someone who just came out and said that.
Dawn did. She is my new therapist. And she is a unicorn.
She listened and then explained what she thought was the root of things, a plan to approach it, and why. WHY! I LOVE WHY. Too often people just expect us to sit and follow instructions. We know our bodies and we know our lives. You can’t see us for an hour every so often and tell me that you know what is best for me. Granted, I am a huge proponent for modern medicine and listening to your provider, but sometimes they get it wrong.
I think Dawn is on to something. She has to be, because she is a freakin unicorn. I feel relief honestly. I was worried I was going to go into this and be the one running the show. I already run the show too often, that’s why I need Dawn. I see a therapist because my mental health doc requires it….I might actually WANT to see her now.
The Zoloft they added to my cocktail has really helped.
I finished my masters degree program last night.
I just wanted to pop on and share my fantastic week with you beautiful people (and it’s only Tuesday!) I will have a lot more free time now that school is over. Hope to write more VERY soon 🙂

Congratulations on finishing your Masters 🎉 And I love Unicorns 🦄 I’m totally in agreement with this post! You know your body – no one else really knows what you need! It seems to be trial & error! I wish you the best 😊 Tanya – DivinelyBipolar
Well done on finding a unicorn! Good luck with Dawn she sounds like a keeper.
Glad you are doing well, friend. 🕊
Congratulations on your masters program! Ans happy that you’re feeling alive and well. X
Congratulations on completing your masters 😀 :D. I can’t even begin to comprehend the strength it must have taken.
I also love doctors who explain ‘WHY’. Unfortunately in my whole life, I have only found one. I don’t understand why they are so afraid to explain it to us :/.
Congrats on completing your Masters! I am still about 8-9 months away. Primarily dealing with what you deal with daily, it’s a fantastic accomplishment. I had a unicorn for five years. The best therapist ever. Now I can’t even get a therapist in the county behavioral health. I truly miss my mental health unicorn.
Congratulations on finishing your Master’s program! I’ve been there; it’s such a great feeling when you get it done.
CONGRATULATIONS on finishing your Masters program! That is FANTASTIC! And so great that you’ve found someone who can actually help. I’m happy for all your good news!
