> i see ur point i have always felt that my severe anxiety keeps me from doing things like i once did and by keeping to myself i become depressed. im young and ive always had anxiety but 4 years ago i had a job i loved, i was back into sports(had 2 play on an all guy team but that made it more fun when i struck them out after their hooters jokes LOL)and life was good until the straw that broke the camels back. i have made it through sexual,physical and mental abuse so i cant seem to figure out why im stuck. i often wonder if it is that i feel ive lost my independance..i dont know-just babbling:-D

It is certainly okay to babble here on this board! I know so many women who after going through some pretty awful sexual, physical and mental abuse that the damage just sticks with them and is so devastating. Some therapists just don't "get it" when it comes to the abuse cycle. As the nurturing ones, women tend to blame themselves for the abuse heaped on them. The blame/shame turns to depression. First of all, you are NOT to blame for ANY of the abuse. You DID NOT deserve it. Also, I understand how difficult it is trying to find appropriate health care without insurance. (Have you ever noticed that the tallest buildings in a big city are the insurance companies?!?) You might want to communicate your feelings to your therapist in a more forceful way. If the therapist still "doesn't get it", find another. It is difficult; just one more seeming insurmountable task. You CAN do it! You are worth it! You are very valuable and need to be selfish about this right now. It is okay.

Going to see the Wizard can be so daunting,
