hey guys,
greetings! Hopefully no one was offended by my previous post -- I can be somewhat blunt when offering my views. I can def. tell that you have a lot of experience with therapy / therapists...sounds like you're a good sounding board for tabitha & others.

As a newbie to therapy, I guess I'm concerned when I read about the somewhat one-sided depth of the relationship that many people seem to develop with their therapists. It doesn't always seem healthy for the subject, who gets in so deep that he/she seems almost entranced or ensnared by the T.

I guess for myself, I hope to get advice & ideas from the T. but always keep somewhat my core separate, to the point where I could leave without serious regrets and without despair. I'm the kind of person who likes to be in control, and it angers me to think that some T.'s seem to take over, virus-like, in a subject's soul (so to speak!) I def. want to protect myself against that because I don't think -- for me -- that it would ultimately be good for my life or my relationship with my husband & friends.

But certainly each person has to make choices about what is best for him/her. I know that everyrone has a different preferred therapy style and you should seek the comfort level you need.

My previous comments were def. not intended to hurt your feelings -- hope I didn't do that. :)

I wish each of you the best & hope that your personal therapist is doing you right. :)

take care!
