OK, my memory is kind of bad. I could have sworn I remember seeing you on here saying your dx was schizoaffective. Maybe it was your friend Judy that said that. My mistake. Anyway, whats your dx? You have to have some sort of serious mood disorder...afterall you cut yourself, have "cutting impulses" all the time, have severe suicidal impulses a lot. Sounds pretty severe.

Either way, I dont believe talk psychotherapy is going to help you very much with problems like that. Again, Im NOT coming down on you just trying to get you to confront the severity of your brain illness. Pop psychology and things of that nature is not going to stop you from cutting yourself or having those urges. Strong medications like MAOIs, high dose Effexor and ECT WILL stop it. I come on here and read about you having these cutting impulses all the time, severe suicidal ideation and never read you talking about meds, ECT and the other things that will shut that stuff down cold. But you talk about your therapist constantly.

I just gotta wonder if your therapist is jerking you around making you believe that neverending talk therapy is going to fix you, cause its not.

BTW my dx code is "296.20" or Major depression, single episode. Do you know your dx code? If I had put the emphasis in my treatment on psychotherapy, I would have been dead years ago.

There is also ECT, you can get it outpatient these days too.

take care,
