I am realizing that as this blog shifts from something I used as an undergraduate to something I am using as a graduate student and soon to be clinician that the context people may view my blog in may change. I would like to emphasize that at this point I am a student and not licensed to practice psychotherapy.
This blog exists to help me organize my thoughts about different experiences I have had. It also helps to allow me to share things which I generally feel unable to share in my day to day life. If other people derive some benefit from it that is great, but I want to emphasize that this blog is still primarily intended for my own personal support and I would not categorize it as a blog which intends to be educational.
Along that line, nothing on this blog should be construed as medical advice. With the exception of a couple list type posts (my therapist list for example) I don’t generally go back and re-edit posts later (except to fix typos). If I do make an update, it will be clear what have been changed since the original posting. In that light, posts should be viewed as my opinions at a particular point in time. It should be taken into consideration that my posting frequency is highest on this blog at times when I am struggling so my posts reflect my thinking during difficult times in my life which may not match how I feel at other times.
I have a very liberal comment policy. I remove spam and other blatant advertisements. I remove comments that are far off-topic. For the most part I will approve any on-topic comments, even if I disagree with them. Although I have comment moderation on, comment approval should not be considered an endorsement by me. That said, this is still my blog so I reserve the right to arbitrarily approve or remove comments in whatever way I like.
