I'm not sure if you remember me, but a long time ago I asked about therapy, and how I wanted to make things right. I ended up not going, because after I said I wanted to, my mom told me "then you're not ill. Mentally unstable people do not want to get help." But your ask helped a lot, and I have a screenshot of it saved on my phone and highlighted. I may be one of the many anons you've helped, but your advice gave me so much hope. Thank you so much. Can I call you mom? You're very sister like.
I’d prefer to just say “Iris” because “mom” makes me feel old and responsible for others, and I’m definitely not either.
Mentally stable AND unstable people seek help from therapy all the time. I’m alarmed by this ask and I’m going to say something triggering so I’m placing a cut here.
