Choosing you

Yes, this probably did choose you. I think things can only be contained and ignored for so long, and then something out of the blue brings it up, and this time, it cannot be ignored.

I know that I can recount all the abuse in a factual way without feeling anything. That's my defense. The feelings manifest themselves when I'm alone or in the middle of the night or when I'm driving -- it can be so intense. Much better to be in a safe environment like your therapist's office.

How do you contain your feelings after a session? Since I feel like I'm "right behind you" in this process, I'm very curious. I'm frightened about actually having to feel this pain from childhood all over again to heal.

As for the things you researched that help in this process, you do have frequent contact with your therapist; do you have a support system? (I hope we Babblers count!) I would imagine that if he doesn't recommend meds, he wouldn't recommend a hospital stay at this point.

Sorry you're having to go through so much, but I think you're very brave to do so. Take care.
