“It's so sinister. It's so dreaded that you actually begin showing signs of its impending approach on Sunday, before it's even arrived! You don't think, you know, everything will be miserable. After all, it's Monday!”

If you're asking yourself, "Is therapy really a Godly approach?" Remember that John 14:26 refers to the Holy Spirit as a Counselor. Also, thought the Bible we are told to seek, listen, and receive counsel!
After a lot of confusion, drama, fear, horrible decisions, and finally a complete and total breakdown that left me in the fetal position in my bathtub, at the age of 16, I begged my mother to "please just fix me."
