We’re in a new age of authenticity about mental health—thanks in part to honest and brave public figures telling their stories, and the popularization of things like “mental health days” at many offices. Taking the shame out of getting help is a huge step forward in terms of public health, no doubt. But what hasn’t gotten easier is the actual work you have to put after you find your dream therapist.

Let’s be real, when you’re on that couch, revealing the inner workings of your soul, your mind is spinning at 100 miles an hour, throwing around some funny and relatable curveballs. You know, the type of stuff you would tweet or text a friend if you weren’t otherwise occupied with said therapy session.

See the 10 things you probably think of while with your therapist.
