Hey sweetie.
i'm definately not a person of great wisdom...but that doesn't stop me from putting in my 2c. ;^)

-i know that you have been 'not comfortable' (not sure if right words) with the group (or T) since the getgo.
-if you had to miss the sessions, you had to miss them. end of story-don't fret, just continue on.

HOWEVER, the fact that you have circling thoughts on DBT vs. CBT, group vs. indiv. -and possibly different therapist all make me think that you need to follow your gut on this one.
-ask yourself some important questions. when you do go to group, why do you go? is it because someone told you you needed this kind of therapy and you're just following schedule? or because once you started you are getting somethihng out of it?
ask yourself is it helping? have you noticed any difference in your behaviors/situations, are you getting more comfortable or do you want to just get each session 'overwith'.

Maybe it's time to try out a completely different therapist (which doesn't necessarily mean stopping and starting new-continue as 'scheduled'. but take a look around also). that may help you to 1)know what else is out there 2)may confirm your doubts/assurance of "where you are".

hope this makes sense.
in the end i always have to go with my gut. good and bad, it's taken me in the direction i've needed to go.

please take care of yourself.
