I haven’t been posting much. I guess that’s because I haven’t had a lot to say. Without school around everything just seems easier. There’s a minimal level of stress in my life and that’s awesome given how unbelievable the last few weeks of school were. It feels really great. I guess this is what feeling relaxed feels like lol.
Things are moving forward with school for the fall. The future roommate and I are going to look at a pretty great apartment in a few days (keep your fingers crossed for us!) and once that’s done it’ll just be getting myself and all my crap back to Toronto. I can’t wait. I love it here but I really miss Toronto.
I guess things have been going pretty well lately. I can’t really complain about much and even the things that bug me just kind of roll away because I don’t want to dwell on them. I just want fun times right now. I think I finally understand what my therapist was trying to say the last time I was there when he told me that I was choosing to be angry. It didn’t make sense then (and it still doesn’t make a ton of sense) but I can feel myself letting go of things. I can be angry or sad or frustrated or whatever the case may be for a period of time and then I can drop it or focus elsewhere for a while. It’s kinda awesome.
Long story short, I feel pretty fucking great about things.

“hey im emotionally unstable and not good at texting do u wanna date me”
Anonymous asked: Sucks that the treatment program didn't work out. Can you share when the program ran (times, frequency)? I looked it up online and was wondering if that would work for me.
hey! I can share what I remember from the orientation. So, once you’re referred you go on the list and then to a 3 hour orientation which is mostly filling out treatment questionnaires. Should that go well (it did not for me lol) you move on to the group. It’s one group, once a week for a minimum of 6 months. If at the 6 month point (when the group wraps up) you still need additional support there are some other groups (I think one was relapse prevention focused and one was body image). I want to say the weekly group was 2 hours. The one that’s happening right now was on Thursday from 4 (or 4:30) until 6pm. The program itself sounded really useful and great. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions and I can try to answer them. Best of luck to you :)
