I did cry at times but am I supposed to sit there crying week after week until eventually Ive worked through it and how long is it supposed to take?

Also, I have to say I came off antidepressants and medication whilst having the therapy so that my feeling were more raw.

The recommendation is therapy and meds, I'm not so sure how that is supposed to work when meds often take the edge off the feelings anyway.

Anyway thanks for responding. My point really was that the word "trauma" seems to be bandied about quite a lot lately. It seems to be the buzzword.
