This thread is so important. Thank you everyone. I feel so much for everyone who's shared their pretty awful experiences on here, but the openness is genuinely refreshing. I find it strange and quite sad that the word 'therapy' is still seen as such a taboo thing. I'd *love* to speak to a therapist regularly. Not because I feel on the edge of anything, but simply because I think i'd enjoy it, yet I'm far too insecure to openly ask around about that kind of thing. I think I'd find it incredibly well...therapeutic. We all need a bit of that tbh.
