I'll keep looking for that book secondhand.
I LOVED Group therapy today.
I was upset about "what if my son doesn't go to his group today - it was his birthday & they were having a cake for him & if he sleeps in & doesn't go, they might be SO disappointed"
I asked to 'do work' in group. It turned out that what I was upset about was NOT what I thought (as I guessed) & was about my ex-husband leaving me! Who woulda thot!!!!!!??
The doctor who was leading the group said she suspects I have a LOT of issues about him & she encouraged me to work on it in future groups - preferably sooner rather than later.
I am all for that! I feel so extremely SAFE in this group. She is totally SKILLED & COMPASSIONATE. I am so excited to be going to this GT & that it's covered by OHIP (government medical) so is free!!
Oh My Gosh!
PS - after doing the work, I wasn't upset any more about the birthday cake thing!!!!!!!
