So where am I at? Well lets state the undeniable truths: I am Nick, I am a 29 year old gay male, I am HIV positive/ undetectable, I am an addict with 150 days of a drug abstinence, and I am struggling to find hope for the future. Each day is a roller coaster ride of emotions lately. I like the mood map on here but I swear If it were to track me by the hour it would be like a ride at six flags or some theme park. I want to focus on just one day, today for instance. Not a bad day, I worked a bit, solved a issue with a task that I had thought was done but wasn’t. That was annoying and hurt my pride a bit but alright. I closed work early, due to a “family emergency” aka my mom turned 57 today and was going to spend the night alone since my dad was working. So I closed 2 hours early and took my mom to dinner. Dinner was pretty good, even had a cute server. I’m not really sure that the conversation was all that meaningful with my mom, I guess it was my presence that mattered. I was happy and present in the moment the entire time until that server showed up. I really don’t know where I’m going with this except that I had a good day and now I feel overwhelmed with emptiness…I feel less than because of my status. How do I get away from defining myself by it? Like I can’t change it, I could have prevented it but I cant change it now. I have so many other things that I can try to move past, why am I stuck on this? Am I actually stuck on this or do I not want to fix the rest? what’s the rest? I should delete this but I wont, I don’t understand why I’m here. I want to know my place and be happy there, I want to chase my joy. I just don’t know where to start.

Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here.

These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
