...About that elephant...

..for the moment, it's acting like a red herring. I went back to revisit the times when I'd acted in a guilty and shameful way, and found that I felt like I would have done the same thing under the same circumstances now.
So was this something to not feel guilt over, or am I skirting the moral issues because they still carry so much weight with me? My T is not worried. She wants me to continue on with what we are doing, "take it easy" on myself, and when and if the time is right, we can work on it again. The way my feelings triggered such an enormous and overwhelming feeling of depression seems to me to be a sign that I'm not through with this yet. I admire my T for recognizing that maybe it's too large an elephant (or herring, or whatever) for right now.

My Lamictal was bumped up to 300mg to help with the associated anxiety I've been experiencing. Makes me feel just like that elephant at the moment, but I am grateful for the respite.
