> Coping is very relevant at this point.

I didn't want to assume anything.

>I saw my therapist this morning and thankfully I'm no longer in a crisis (I was in the ER Sunday).

I'm so sorry it's so hard right now. I'm glad you're out of crisis.

>She felt that being exposed to groups that discussed their own traumatic experiences would trigger me and I tend to agree. So we are looking at cognitive groups for dissociation that emphasize coping skills.

Good. You really have to get stable before exposing yourself to too much. I still trigger very easily, but not quite as much as I used to. But in the beginning, I was a mess. And we spent lots of time on building trust and safety.

>One interesting fact- she is getting an aide dog for a patient who dissociates a great deal, similar to me. I already have 2 dogs- one who could probably be trained for this purpose.

I actually met one woman in a DID group that I thought about joining (I lasted one meeting!)... it was too soon for me. But, she had one of those dogs and it was just marvelous!
