This. Direct but polite and make it about you, not her. But seriously, it sounds like she could use a dog. Maybe volunteer Merlin to play when she comes over uninvited when you're busy but feel like you can't kick her out? That is, if he's friendly and you're okay with him socializing.

Fran OMG that would drive me insane!

We have basically the "communal house" in our group of friends, and all the band practices happen here, tons of potlucks, people come over to smoke fish in the smoker or to use our shop for vehicle repairs, etc etc. I am a major introvert and sometimes I feel like I'm going to go insane when I can't have time alone in my OWN HOUSE! We don't even have roommates!! Why are there people here ALL THE TIME!!?

But then sometimes I like it.

That girl sounds totally off the wall though, I can't even imagine that.

Pretty sure he's not going to get bitchy on me about it, but still.

Or you could go to the one 10 minutes away from you off HR Pkwy and pay a $20 copay that can come out of pre-tax money if you get the hsa account. That'll cover five 1-hr visits, and if you really don't want therapy at that point, you didn't spend any extra money.

Neither of my therapists have been particularly judgey.

Yeah.. my psychiatrist wasn't really judgmental. He was super sweet& I expect a genuinely nice person invested in making other people feel better about themselves& their life circumstances!

I like to think no one who didn't genuinely care about solving problems and helping people would go to school for it and rack up hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt. There's always the exception (like the one who insisted that I'm a heroin addict and tried to have me permanently committed) but most of them are super awesome.

That's probably true ..I was super shocked how nice it was to just talk to someone who wasn't invested in you the way friends/ family/ significant others are. It was refreshing!

Yeah therapists do not judge because of first world white girl problems, they thrive on them. First world white girl problems are the raison d'etre of many many therapists.

Without first world white girl problems my therapist would be out of a job lol
and he is very non-judgey
When I was 16 my therapist very kindly helped me pick a dress for winter formal! lol he even worked with me on what color I should paint my nails.

They aren't there to judge..they are there to help.

Your feelings are valid because you feel them. No excuses necessary, first world or no.
