Wee bit of me Wednesday

Yes I'm late with this as its Thursday but I love borrowing these prompts because sometimes I just can't think of stuff to blog about and I'm gonna try to do it more regularly

{one} have you ever crawled through a window?

geez I have a horrible memory so I'm not sure, but I vaguely remember going into a window at some point because we locked ourselves out, I just don't know who "we" was or what house
{two} what’s one subject that you wish you knew more about?health
{three} who’s your favorite villain?again, with the bad memory I think there was a character named something Khan who was a bad guy on tail spin waaaaay back when... I just really like the name Khan
{four} have you ever hit a jackpot on a slot machine?how much is considered a jackpot? I think I won like $200 dollars once in palm springs and I was REALLY excited about that. the best part? I wasn't gambling with my own money... when I was about to walk away from that machine a guy sitting next to me said wait play some more and put money in it for me! and he didn't even try to hit on me! awesome!
{five} what is your favorite disney movie?bambi, I think just because I received it as a gift when I was a kid (I think from my dad)
{six} if the whole world were listening, what would you say?I think the world would rather not hear what I have to say, so I'll spare you
{seven} if you could choose one song to describe you or your life, what would it be?"be happy" by Mary J. Blige b/c that's all I really want but why is it so hard?
{eight} your desk: messy or organized?relatively organized
{nine} have you ever had surgery?yes, oral surgery to get all 4 wisdom teeth out. they were impacted
{ten} if you could have any animal as a pet, what would you have?a dog! I always want to have at least one dog, a female dog, preferably an adoptee and a mutt
I currently am on my 2nd and have had her for over 13 years!

this is from leigh ashley's blog I tried adding the button on top but am not sure that it worked... I need a blog tutorial, my blog is plain and boring compared to lots of super cool ones I follow

Today I started therapy... well not according to my therapist, she says today was an evaluation and our sessions will start next week.

Either way it is a pretty big step for me. I have issues, (who doesn't) and I'm doing something about it! I'm proud of myself and looking forward to an improvement in my emotional well-being.

Alot of people consider blogging therapy, and sure I sometimes do it to vent to. Sometimes I notice the blogosphere can be very supportive of others, but even still I think I need a professional. I think alot of people can benefit from therapy. There is still a sort of stigma against therapy although I know alot of people think of it as no big deal (as I do). I recently read an article in Glamour about anxiety and just how common it is. I already knew I may have it or at least some symptoms of it by then but it was reassuring that Glamour was putting it out there and raising awareness, encouraging their readers to seek help if they needed it. Going to therapy does not mean that I am crazy or anybody else who goes is crazy.

Talking to friends or family can help, but sometimes you just need to vent and not worry about offending anybody. I think the blog is a great avenue for this. I don't want to offend any readers either but what I mean is that you don't know me, I don't know you so if we understand each other great, but if we don't that's OK too. Times are tough, I'm kinda having a quarter life crisis and I worry alot about sooo many things. If anybody reading this thinks they may have anxiety, depression or other emotional issues that could benefit from seeking treatment with a therapist I encourage you to do your research. You will realize that these problems are very common, and are treatable. I pondered taking this step for several months and made an appointment once I found a therapist that I thought would fit my needs and be understanding about my background. I'm looking forward to being able to relax, sleep better and improved relationships with my loved ones among other benefits.
