> ll, I thought you had some specific abuse issues which you were gradually preparing to talk about. If I remember correctly, you just began with this therapist last spring. Have you had time to form a really good connection with him, and to deal with the things that happened thoroughly?

I think he and I have a good relationship at this point. I'm still trying to be a perfect client though. Don't want him to see me coming apart at the seams. But when he HAS seen me doing not well, he has been supportive; perhaps he doesn't want to provide positive reinforcement for my distress?

>Just judging from me, it takes quite a long time to do that- lots of going over and over the same traumas until there is less pain associated with them. Do you agree with their assessment? If you do- wonderful! But, if you don't, you're the one who knows best.

I'm pretty functional at this point. I have periods of distress, but I can keep it under control.

That's an idea. I guess my worst periods of instability were when I had little therapy support on top of med changes/withdrawal. definitely one of those cases of changing one thing at a time.

thanks for your insight
