Today is Arthur's birthday. Some time this week we are going to celebrate with a few drinks, some readings, and his favorite music in the background, as is customary. He likes having small traditions for things, so whenever I ask if he wants to do something different, he leaves it open but strongly hints that he's happy with doing the same thing each year. We first do a "serious" card reading, and then after a bit of alcohol, we go into putting together silly spreads. Unfortunately, it's Sunday night, and I have to pick up my dad from the airport early tomorrow morning before I go to work. So we're going to wait for a little bit.

I'm going to start seeing a hypnotherapist some time soon. I spoke with my doctor the other day about depression and anxiety, and I decided to be honest with myself in that I'm wary of going to see a traditional therapist. I've realized that my previous experiences have been more harmful than I had wanted to acknowledge at first, but at this point, I would like to try an alternative instead of forcing myself into a situation that I would not be comfortable with. This last therapist I've had not only was unhelpful, but she broke confidentiality and told my dad (who was a raging asshole at that time) about some of things I had shared with her during sessions. I expected the doctor to suggest going to a regular therapist anyway, but she was surprisingly receptive about my concerns, so she gave me a referral for a clinical hypnotherapist. I'm very calm about this, and the general vibes I'm getting are positive. We'll see how it goes.
