I'm not bipolar, but I also do things like write and rewrite letters to people who have hurt me. Writing and rewriting, getting the words just right. I don't send the letters though. At the time, it feels therapeutic. But I store the letters in a box or fold them into my journal. When I reread them much letter, I'm suprised by the intensity of my emotions and am usually glad I didn't send them.

I was in a somewhat similar sitch to yours. Not exactly, but I have alluded to it before, about ending the therapy part of pdoc visits because of transference issues and his casual boundary style accidentally contributing to it. I don't want to write much more because writing about it can trigger me into ruminating about it and blah bla ruminating.

One thing that helped me a lot was reading a chapter in that book, "When to Say Goodbye to Your Therapist". I made a special trip to a library that had it and xeroxed the chapter. I am not sure the book is still in print...But I did the double double quotes so let's see if it comes up when I post this...
