I deal a lot with shame too, Tabitha, and it's just awful. It's one of the worst things you can feel. I just don't understand your therapist. I thought the point was to be open with the group about things such a suicidal feelings not to be encouraged to "take care" of the group.

I think Dinah has wonderful suggestions. I would go even further -- I would tell your therapist that you intend to start interviewing others because of this mess. Or go ahead and interview them without telling her for that sense of power Dinah mentioned.

But . . .

Question for Dinah: Have you ever actually met with another therapist while seeing your current one? Do other therapists let you interview knowing you haven't left the current T? I know there are some sticky unwritten rules about that.

Anyway, you sure do hang in there, Tabitha. I'd rather see you experience righteous anger than shame.

I think you're great, for what it's worth.
