>I'm sure it means a great deal to have her support

<giggle> my therapist is a guy. :-) i know, i know.. you'd think i'd be seeing a lady. i don't get it either, except that my emotions overwhelm me so much that it helps for me to see a man because he isn't prone to get as emotional if that makes sense.

>my shrink with whom I've developed a trusting relationship does not believe in DID- he came out and said that, which is fine with me. I do believe in it, just don't want it. Do you think it's unusual for a 40ish shrink not to believe in DID?

yes. but i think there are some that haven't experienced a client with that and so it's easier to discount it's existence. my pdoc was very candid that he had in the past other clients with DID and how much it effected their normal daily functioning. (ie: he takes it seriously.)

I'm glad you have developed a trusting relationship. Sometimes you can do really well to talk about everything else and just not touch the subject that you don't agree on. That's how I feel with my pdoc. He's not perfect, but when it comes down to getting my meds (which is what I hired him for), he believes me and my side-effects and is willing to work with me to get it right. If he does his medical job well, then I'm happy. But if my therapist didn't diagnose me properly, then I would have a problem.

> Does your therapist think it's a good idea for your Mom to come? Was it your idea?

Honestly, I don't know. I know we've talked about it. But my head just starts to spin when I try to remember what we talked about. I've learned to go with the flow and that, based on past experience, I tend to rise to the occasion and take care of myself. So I have to trust that will happen again, even though I don't see how I'm going to pull it off. I usually end of daydreaming and .... you get the point.

Thanks for your kind words.

Terra
