I have been through Cognitive Processing Therapy with my therapist for one of the things that happened. My life has been in upheaval and she has been helping me through that. It's really taxing to go through it in therapy.

Yes the help is there but I find ways to avoid or sabotage it because I am not sure about being helped? I think its society that needs help to not see everyone as ill because it costs values upon us we cant relate to.
There is definitely mental illness. There are some people that are eccentric in their personalities that might be seen as mentally ill. If they are not suffering they are not mentally ill. Are you suffering or do you see yourself as different from others and you are ok with that?

I'm sorry to hear that you have had so much to deal with, I can relate to some of your experiences xx

I can only say for me that after years of self medicating and drinking, it dulled the pain in the moment but couldn't deal with the problem, so I really hope that the therapy works for you, as hard as I will be try to be strong and talk to us us much as you need xx
