> I am mortified that I can't contain these emotional responses to her enough for them not to interfere with therapy. The longings and gratitude that I feel, and the self-attacks and self-loathing that follow--they are just so painful. And I can't figure out if it's worthwhile because the only time my life really feels like its going down the tubes is when I feel these things, which is only after I reach out to her for help and she responds. And the idea of saying all of this to her, and even having her respond seems like it would just throw me overboard into a sea when I don't have the strength to swim. But I don't know what else to do. It just feels like there's no solution.

hi! i've also just recently posted about leaving therapy and then i read your post and i wanted to say that i understand completely but i wasn't nearly as brave as you in writing and explaining my feelings here. i have been able to share with my therapist some of my feelings but i can't share them here (yet?).
i think that you should hang in there and take it slowly - if you can post so openly here you will be able to talk to your therapist one day... slowly, just take it one step at a time.
i hope that helps. or maybe nothing really helps as its something inside you that has to overcome the ...fear? i don't know what to call it, its like a fighting a survival instinct, it's like trying to force yourself to jump off a cliff.
i wish you well and hope you look after yourself in the meantime.
