The Lasts

Yesterday was my last therapy session with C. After a journey of nearly a year and a half, it was bittersweet to say good-bye and thank her for facilitating a lot of hard work and growth. She, like my blog readers, has been along for the bumpy ride of heartache, depression, confusion, new hope, growth, and now, love. Carolina Man came with me to the session, which was a lovely way of tying it all together.

My room is mostly packed, to the point that I can't find anything I need and I've only got those random tidbits like a soap dish and a pile of magazines to deal with. It's crazy to think that in just a few days I'll be starting a new life, not leaving behind my current one entirely but starting a new chapter.

I'm leaving without the slightest tinge of doubt about my decision. I can't imagine a better feeling.


  1. I am so insanely happy for you. I feel like I've ridden this rollercoaster with you and I'm so damn happy to know it's turning out well for you because I truly think you deserve it.

  2. Wow. Congratulations! Thanks for being so honest about your journey and for inspiring me to restart therapy and journaling too. I hope to see you Friday!

  3. Hi! Don't know if you remember, but we used to frequent each others' blogs. I used to write the "Gradually Grokking" blog, and then when I moved to Japan I COMPLETELY forgot it existed.

    Just rediscovered it by chance yesterday, and landed on your blog again for the first time in ages! Can't wait to catch up. Also, fyi, you asked to keep you posted about my life in Japan - here's the blog I've been keeping:

    :-) ^__^

  4. All the best. I am so happy for you too.

    Now please continue to keep us posted on how things go in NC!!
