Actually, I think I'm in a second (or maybe fiftieth or so) honeymoon stage with my current therapist. I can suddenly *see* all the benefits therapy has brought, and I'm sort of flabbergasted at how so many of them crept up on me without my noticing them. My thread above springs from that thought. And I really love how well my therapist understands me.

At the moment, the particular benefit that is amazing me the most is that I really feel like I understand *why* I do what I do. I was sooo obsessed with that for so long. My old posts reflect it, it's in my psychology testing report as the reason for getting the testing done. Yet now I think I really have a good grasp on the "why". I think I can see that I really do act with a certain internal consistency.

So at the moment, I am totally satisfied with my plain old therapist. I have no doubt though, that as with any relationship, this crest will break and I'll be interested in group therapy or marathon groups or something to shake up my therapy. Because therapy is a very slow progression with me, no big moments, and unless I happen (like now) to step aside and look at the gains from a distance, I don't always see them.

But I adore reading about the really big moment sessions, and always hope that against all odds I'll have one now and again. :)
