In this episode of Not Terrible, Jess and Mary discuss therapy. From finding the courage to ask for help to the hard work that begins once you leave the therapist's couch, they share why we all probably need professional counseling at some point and why that's completely normal.
-We're sorry about the singing at the beginning; here's the Rolling Stones' song Jess was thinking about (called What a Shame), and here's the song we were actually singing (called Fame by David Bowie). Are we full of shame about this error? Probably.
-Therapy hangover is real! Jess shared hard things in counseling and then had to take a break to recover. The good news is therapy hangover can create transformation, but it's hard work too. (You can read more about it here.)
-The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk M.D. (We'll visit this idea in more detail in an upcoming episode.) *DISCLOSURE: affiliate link
-How did this episode have so many badly sung songs in it? We promise this won't be a pattern. But ANYWAY, about that pony song: Pony by Ginuwine
-Theme song provided by The Easthills. "Expose Myself" can be found on their Death of a Salesman album.
