I think what your therapist said was interesting, and may be true in some cases. Personally group therapy is frightening to me (even if it is led by a therapist), because I would feel judged. And I have been forced to go when hospitalized- and would last 5 minutes before fleeing the room. But I'm aware my illness is a shame-based one so I am more susceptible to that situation. Honestly I have never felt judged here, and if so I've conveniently forgotten. So when I find someone who is struggling with the same issues I am- but is much further along (Terra), I feel like I've been given a gift. Without the fear of a group of new faces with different ideas. Obviously I speak for myself here, I'm sure others find group therapy beneficial (my therapist certainly wants me to try). As far as posters who never get well- I guess I haven't noticed that, but I avoid many threads for fear of being triggered so I'm sure you have a better handle on that. Mostly I see the ebb and flow you mentioned- the giving and asking for advice. Take care, judy
