**I no longer have rages. I now understand that the emotions DO in fact pass. I didn't know that before. I thot they just stayed inside and fermented and controlled me. This is part of the educational aspect of therapy.
The thing bout T, is what I have learned is sort of like riding a bike. You never forget how. You can get a little rusty, but you always remember how to ride. Same with the coping strategies I have learned in T, they are forever, they are not a bandaid, they will not fall off. Also the things I have learned about how emotions work are life changing. It makes sense to me NOW, and is totally logical, but before i just did not have that information. So whether my dysfunction is purely biological, or as a result of environment, the end result is the same, improvement.
> That is just my prejudice on matters of temper that are chronic problems. If it is a life phase thing and you thing your T, saying nothing but "educating" the stuff out helps, i hope it will be permanent for you.
**I have no way of knowing if my 'temper' or mood stuff is chronic. But even if it IS, I will cope with it better, and it will negatively impact my life MUCH less.
All this amazing changes, as the result of therapy.
Words ARE magic. They can hurt. Words can even kill. Mere words. They can bring joy to peoples hearts. Words. Talking. There IS a magic to interpersonal communication.
There CAN be healing, life giving healing in therapy.

Yet it clouded your judgement in posting impulsively to the thread above....hmmmmm. Words.
Hope you can get your stuff sorted out.
