I tend to think of Babble functioning much the way group therapy or support groups must function. You do hear about other people's struggles and their therapy, etc. It would be impossible not to compare. But don't we do that in all aspects of our lives? I wish I had my friend's mom, or another's husband and I'm glad I have my own kids and suspect other people wish they had them too. There are lots of therapists described here that seem like they are so dedicated and caring, and seem just right for that client.
Like mine. I feel strange sometimes when I hear people say things about my therapist (not that I don't think he is the best!) but I want to point out that his style would likely drive a number of people batty. His answer is almost always, "let's talk about it." More is better. And he is a complete smart a** -- which could be taken the wrong way -- OK, I'm stopping. I was going to try to "prove" that he isn't perfect, but you already know that. He is just perfect for me.
And do I know that 3 years (almost) is relatively short time of therapy for abuse issues? Yes, I've read that. But haven't I told you I'm an overachiever? I tell my therapist all the time! :)
