What is your attitude about going to the doctor? How about the therapist?
I know I have resistance to these things. I always hope things will go away, and I don’t have to go. On the other hand, my wife lays down the law, and I have to get a physical every year, and so I’m on all these blood pressure and other drugs.
I’d been to a therapist long ago—I don’t remember why, and when we were having troubles with conceiving, we went to a group for that, and I didn’t mind those things. However, when I got a brain disorder (bipolar), I didn’t want to go. I still feel this sense of failure when I go, even though everyone says it’s good for me. I want it to work, but at the same time, I am constantly looking for signs that it isn’t helping. My view is mixed, I guess.
