I was 22 years old and I dragged myself into a new waiting room with my very own insurance card from my first full-time job. I took the clipboard to start filling out the paperwork and an unassuming man came to call me back for my first therapy session since I finished college.

Making the Choice

He sat me down and told me, “You have two options. We can do talk therapy, which from the looks of your papers you have been doing well over 10 years and are very familiar with, or we can try something totally new and weird and unorthodox.”

The books began collecting dust on the shelf, and I went on living my life.

Happily Ever After?
