Hi...good going. Once you feel the empowerment of working on yourself, if this therapist isn't effective for you, you'll be able to keep at it until you find the one that works.
Sometimes all you have to say is there are things I need to work on. If she is really interested she may ask what and you can decide what and how much to tell her. You can also say you don't feel comfortable talking about it right now. Work with your therapist on ways of telling her.
I'm back in therapy now. I've been going on and off for most of my life. This therapist for the last 15 years...but not continuously. She is really wonderful. As far as male vs female, find what works for you. I'd like to have found a man, but this one is so good and we work so well together, I am just thankful I have one.
Keep up the good work

Tell her you want to go because you want to go...

If that doesn't work, tell her you want to go because you want to go...

If you have to, tell her you can't explain it, you want to go because you want to go...

Tell her you don't expect her to understand, you just want her help and support. If this is still not enough...Tell her, though she's your mother and is only being nosey cause she cares, SHE doesn't have a penis and would never understand else she would have already agreed and you'd be on your way to the T...

If none of this works, call your dad...

Your friend,

Huck

Well, I told her, and it went as I expected I nearly choked on my own lungs as I said it. and she was upset and asked why, and i just siad, because, she is mad at me, guilt trippin me *shes great at it too* but i don't plan to tell her why. At least the ball is rolling. *no corney pun intended* And hopefully soon we will set up a interveiw too see who i want to see.

Hi Keith,

If you run into any problems just go see your pediatrician and tell him what you need. You Ped will make a referral. If you abuser is still around the ped will have to report him but so will your T because of your age. But don't let that get in the way of going for the help.
