Muffled,
you've given her PLENTY of opportunities to refer you elsewhere for treatment. You've considered her feelings and the possibility of countertransference. You've considered whether she's competent to deal with your case.

I think you covered your bases really well. Now you are in the icky spot of WAITING to see if she will take your bait. You have been waiting for some time now, and she's not biting. What next?

I think that maybe it's time to take a step back, reestablish the T-Muff relationship. I *know* you're not doing really hot right now. I'm so worried about you. I wonder if zoloft will help you like it helped me. It REALLY helped me. I didn't even get manic or anything (I think pdoc was holding his breath or something)

You can ALWAYS deal with the trauma stuff. Now, later, whenever. If it's in the back of your throat like acid vomit, it's probably time to let it out. Other times it's safer to focus on more superficial stresses. Like the transition from summer to school year. That's a transient thing, but it's real. It's okay to say "I'm human, I can only deal with so much on my own". Sometimes just being a mom or a wife or a person is already ENOUGH. It's okay to wait until a more secure moment to bring out the bad stuff and hang it out on the line.

now I talk about myself. Nah, I'll start my own post below.

Well, muff, take care, and your ambivalence is NOT pathological. it's very very normal, and definitely expected. Upheaval can be overwhelming though, and I want you to take the best care of yourself that you possibly can.

hugs,
