  1. I am a Christian Sex Therapist! Oh goodness. I hear the pain in your story and I hate it so much for you. I'm so sorry you have been on this road. I am so glad you are seeking out the right kind of help from a specialist because they are uniquely equipped to answer the theological questions you have as well as deliver quality treatment to you.

  2. I have a few questions that I think other therapists may have as well, since your post is incredibly vague about the function Mindly serves--

  3. Tried but could only get up to season 10. Nothing before that, unfortunately .

  4. The whole thing is ludicrous. Their premise is someone making $100,000 living with four roommates in college housing. Wtf. Who the fuck is living with roomates in college housing and making $100,000 a year?

  5. If they are making $100k a year, why is their monthly spending only $2800/month? Where is the rest of their income going?

  6. I would recommend reading Rod Dreher's book, Live Not by Lies. It is specifically for Christians living in western countries that are being overtaken by the secular totalitartians. It has served as a foundational piece for my sanity in an insane world.

  7. Cool, so could you office share with someone and just not use the office?

  8. I'd love to, but I don't even know how to go about doing that. Do I just contact established, local counselors and ask them how much they would charge for me to office share?

  9. For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 ESV

  10. So does this mean a person can be free from Christ? Can they walk away from Christ now without being submitted to slavery or sin?

  11. I think of what freedom means according to Scripture. A theology of freedom means a freedom from sin. A freedom to worship the Lord.

  12. I'm a therapist. I don't seek to feminize men, but I could easily see how some therapists might do this. The whole toxic masculinity trope is still alive and well in my field. I am female and I try to celebrate my male client's masculinity. My goal is for them to be honorable men.

  13. I don't think this is something you can get quality advice for on social media. You have mentioned deeply ingrained sexual issues in your history. Have you considered working with a good therapist who doesn't subscribe to affirmation only therapy?

  14. Did you happen to have any kind of a hospital stay? I have noticed that sometimes coming out of the hospital can induce depression.

  15. I once heard someone talking about how it is unethical to let clients run up a big bill. It is our job to prevent that. I wouldn't have let her bill run up anywhere near that high. Time to pay up before scheduling her next appointment.

  16. Um, I wouldn't have recommended that. Exposure therapy for trauma is something that needs to be very carefully controlled by a highly trained professional. Given the intimate and private nature of this assignment, I'm not even sure that's exactly possible.

  17. That's great for those who want to live in city centers, but I like having some more space. I have always felt very claustrophobic in places that are more walkable. I like having some space to have my own large garden.

  18. Like I said, for those who want this, that's fine, but I feel claustrophobic in walkable city centers, so I do not want to live in a walkable locale.

  19. I have a couple of experiences of building on missions. I went to Mexico to help build extremely simple homes. These would be considered to be sheds here in the US. There were no architects on sight and I have no idea where the plans came from because I was about 14 years old at the time. I remember being told, "dig here," and I dug. I can't even remember who told me that, though. I think the people in charge of building these "homes" were experienced handymen in our church and the structures would not have required anything more.

  20. I'm unsure why this is for Christians to answer. Maybe speak to a therapist or your doctor.

  21. This. As someone said (here or somewhere else, I can't remember) what do you do if you're not satisfied with the thing/service you're getting in return? It seems like there's a lot of scope for it to affect the treatment in potentially unruly ways.

  22. Yes, the potential issue with dissatisfaction with the product or service sounds ethically chaotic.

  23. "I hope you'd agree we're making good progress on your fear of intimacy but I can't say I really am enjoying all this sourdough bread."

  24. Cream of tartar is a byproduct of winemaking, and it's an acid (tartaric acid), which will amplify the flavor, but if the acidity of the lemon is the problem, it will make the problem worse.

  25. But OP didn't say that acid was the problem, only that citrus was the issue. I mean, vinegar and currants have been suggested. I see that a lot of commenters are confused on this issue, though. So we're in good company.

  26. You've had some great suggestions so far. One I haven't seen is that I use Cream of Tartar to boost and amplify the flavor in my lemon bars. It has that great sour flavor of lemon, but I think it's made from grape skins.

  27. The Hef and the Playboy thing was never something I was interested in, but I was oddly fascinated by the show. I also read Holly Madison's book, Down the Rabbit Hole, and was shocked that she was so honest with the awful living conditions they were in. There's like a code that bunnies went by where no one said anything after they left. This sounds like a great podcast for me. I can't wait to hear more of the behind the scenes action. Thanks!
