and I sobbed through the whole thing 🙁 blech. Now I’m in recluse mode and don’t even want to talk to DH. Hoping this ends later. It was good… really good…. I’m emotionally exhausted though and thought to post an update. Not that my private matters are anything life-changing for any of you… but in case you wanted to know 🙂

I think everyone cries through their first counseling session. I know I did.

I sobbed through it (a solo session in college for depression). Even now, if I wasn’t depressed, I’d probably still cry – there’s something very difficult but also therapeudic about it. I hope it goes well for you.

My mom used to say that crying lets the hurt out so look upon it as a positive thing.

I do believe crying lets out the hurt but it’s hard to begin when you know the tears won’t stop!
I think today was especially hard to get through because I realized I had more issues than I came in with. Besides the abuse (verbal and emotional) by my inlaws I realize I’m going to have to admit and not excuse behavior by those around me at that time…. including DH, my family, etc. Today is only rough because I am realizing our wedding should have been postponed due to all the traumatic events leading up to the day. then I wouldn’t have had so many regrets and might have genuinely been happy that day.
It makes me sad because there’s no going back and I feel like so many people failed me, including our premarital counselor. It angers me to think back to what was said and hwo wrong that was and how no one stepped in to make things better.
I think it’s only by opening all the baggage and dealing with it item by item that it’s goign to get any easier for me.
