I have this coping mechanism for a reason. Is it wise to try to remove it?

*We develope these coping mechanisms for a reason. But, at a point in our lives if there comes a time that we decide that they just aren't working for us anymore then we want them gone. It may have served its purpose in the past, but ask if it is still working for you now? Chances are the answer is a big NO!

True, you won't be as safe. But, you also won't feel as alienated either. Think of how much support you have. You have a wonderful husband, therapist (who's also a snazzy dresser, am I right?), you mentioned a son as well, right? and some beautiful dogs. Think of how much of a better mother and wife you can be, more caring and just a more whole person altogether. I think I'd be willing to give up some stability to get some feeling back in my life. You have a great support system there for you. They aren't going to let anything happen to you. And you're a strong woman as well. And I don't even think it is a trade-off. I think that gaining some feeling will make you a lot less depressed and make you feel even less anxious.
