Met the new therapist

I met with my new therapist today, he seems nice. Hopefully, he will be better than the last one. The last one kept making inappropriate comments that made me feel uneasy and I had to stop going. What’s even better is that he comes to my apartment instead of me having to run to an office. Today was just going over goals and updating my service plan. He said he wants to meet with me once a week which is great. The other places I have gone were only able to offer me a half hour of therapy once a month because of their caseload. I also have someone else helping me find another apartment. We found a couple of places to go look at. I’ve looked up a lot of places online and she has too. The reviews are pretty bad but I guess I’ll have to go see for myself.

AOL announced that they would be discontinuing AIM. I remember using AIM to keep in contact with classmates, friends, people from other countries. I would use song lyrics for away messages and tried to have the coolest buddy icon and profile. I had AOL dial-up before that and so did everyone else at school. There weren’t any social media at that time so everyone tried to have the coolest screen name and profile with different colors and styles. The chat rooms were entertaining too. I would get instant messages from guys asking ASL or if I wanted to cyber. Those were the days. :D

  1. Discontinuing AIM?! Nooooo. I still have the same screenname I had back in 1999 – kissxmyxkitty. Sniffle. We’re getting old.

    And I hope your new therapy continues to work out well. It’s always good when you can connect and feel comfortable with a person!

    1. Yeah, it will stop working on December 15th. I had a lot of screen names. The ones I remember were variations of Princess or Skater Girl. How embarrassing.

  2. I had a case manager that made me feel really uncomfortable so I switched to a women. I hope things are going well for you and that you find a new apartment, I am looking for one too.

    I heard about aim being discontinued, My first thought was that I didn’t know people still used aim.
