It's so good to hear that you feel your amygdala is *cooler* after therapy.-(I'm not sure whether you are still having it or not), I am having the same experience- of finding out how chronically terrified I really am-like you, I didn't even know how much. I, too had a depressed mother, who was not around for long periods of time, but unfortunately also an alcoholic, extremely abusive father. Did you develop a really caring, trusting relationship with your therapist. and do you feel tht is what was most helpful to you? I, and I'm pretty sure lots of others, would love to know more about that, if you feel like sharing it. I would, especially, as I am having much more trouble trusting my therapist now than when I first began therapy a year ago. I think it's because we are in a lot closer touch with all the original fear, and it is spreading into my transference towards him. Rationally, I know he is the same very empathic, experienced therapist whom I chose, who is committed to my well-being and improvement, and whom I like so much, but the fear just seems to be such a huge problem right now. I know that is why I read these books- just to try to gain some understanding and hope about the situation.

By the way, I am right in your age category. so please don't feel that you are unusual in any way. By rights, I should be a grandmother, but have just a 27-year old son at the moment.
