argh - termination - help?

Posted by shortelise on March 31, 2004, at 19:20:22

I have come back to troll for wisdom.

Why oh why do I have to go through this? Why can't I just stop seeing my psychiatrist?
I've seen him every week for five and a half years, I'm much better now.
I've dealt with an anxiety disorder. And lousy interpersonal stuff. And an attachment disorder - maybe that's where termination is supposed to be important - to go through termination the way my shrink thinks is the right way would help to heal the attachment stuff. Great. I want to head for the hills, or at least get under my bed, cry for a week, and forget about him.

He says it won't be easy, that I can taper off, and go back to him should I ever need him.

It feels like my heart is being rent in two, slowly, slowly. He says it's better to do it this way than to compartmentalize the pain.

I can't talk about it without feeling like I'm going to die.


Any wisdom, advice (good or bad), jokes, good ideas, stupid ideas, any observations, intuited solutions, tarot card readings, atrological observances, or anything that you think might help make this easier - please make a note, write it here, zing it into the world of psychobabbling Dr Bob.

I thank you most profusely.

Shorte ouch ouch ouch
