Yes! I want to know the secret! Tell me...pretty please...?

I left my therapist's office wanting to call the ex *more* than I did when I walked in. I don't think he really understands feelings of desperation. He just says I need to go forth and get a life, and that I will attract a different kind of man. Well, duh. I said, 'You're telling me just to disregard all of my dysfunction and go ahead and take action (get a job eg)'. He said yes. I said I didn't know if I was up to that, and if I was I wouldn't be there.

So I don't really get what I'm doing there. I feel like he's telling me really basic things: Go out and get a job. Now. Here's one more step toward doing it.

But is that therapy? I don't know, it doesn't really feel like it to me. Also, I don't feel any better about taking those steps, although he seems to feel it will be my salvation.

How long have you been with your new therapist? It seems like I should feel more sure of mine by now--today was my 4th time.

How old is your youngest? Have things smoothed out a bit?

Thank you for answering, fallsfall and... pssst...bear....what is your secret?
