No need to feel that way, Tabitha. :) Therapy is a process of ups and down and loops, ao naturally talking about it is too.

I like that she gave you an "out" concerning group, so that if you really decide it isn't a useful modality for you, you won't feel like you'll lose her or that it will harm your relationship.

And I also like that she admits that she encourages conflict in group, or stirs the pot or whatever. I'm guessing you know my opinion of pot stirring (wink), and if *my* therapist had told me that straight out I wouldn't have gotten within fifty feet of the group. I think it's great that you ventured into it and are still willing to give it another chance. (Did she lead the group you were in a few years ago? With the same style? That might make you feel better about the old experience.)

I share your opinion of pdocs and medications and side effects, and effects for that matter. Perhaps you can find one like mine that readily admits that there are side effects to taking medications and side effects to not taking them, and it's up to me which side effects I want. I'm on very few long term medications, at very low doses, but I have some medications on hand for acute crises. This seems to be a nice balance for me, and I hope you can come to a plan that feels right for you.

And drat!!! Just when I'm totally fed up with mine he goes and acts wonderfully. Sounds like yours does the same. :) I think it's a pretty nice quality.
