I did it-- I quit group. I announced it tonight, and said I don't want to do the 6 weeks, but I'll come back for one more. So it's a 2 week notice, like someone here suggested (you or Racer?).

I don't know what I'm going to do about individual. I'll complain about how I think she's been doing a bad job with me lately and take it from there.

The session wasn't too bad. I felt detached since I know I'm leaving, so it was all easier to take. Even Mean Woman had lost some of her power. I felt peaceful afterward. Then I started thinking hey, maybe I don't need to quit. Maybe I just need to adjust my detachment level somehow. Then a few minutes later I realized I had started obsessing and feeling bad about the session. So I do need to quit. I know I need to quit. My Inner Wisdom says QUIT DANG IT! QUIT! Then it says Ahhh, thank you so much for quitting. I now reward you with peace and contentment, and a good night's sleep, and intestines that don't hurt for no reason.

Maybe my T is partly right-- maybe it's an intimacy thing making me so reactive. But regardless, I can't switch it off, and my individual sessions aren't soothing my upset, and I can't take it any more right now.

So I've quit!
