Since I found this board about a week ago I have felt so much better. I am sleeping better and am happier. I have more energy to do things with my family and I don't get nearly as upset as I did. I know I have a long way to go, but I am so grateful for this forum. It's almost like having the opportunity to ease myself into treatment rather than jumping in without knowing anything.
Your words are very encouraging. I plan to print them out and take them to my councilor for my next session. Maybe he will understand better. I do want to go to Mass and I feel that confession is an important part of that for me. It is one of the main reasons I chose to be confirmed. Unfortunately, until I have the courage to do it (I still haven't told the councilor everything) I feel like an imposter when I do go. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to face up to it and go. I want my daughter to grow up loving the Church, so I better start showing her how.
Well, thanks again. Happy Mother's Day.
