Hey B2C, it's great to see you again!

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

Definately appreciated! I don't give the best advice, but I like to give it all the same ;) (that's not saying you give bad advice, lol!)

I don't mind going to group, it's not that I want it to be 'over with', I'm interested in psychology and I like watching the other people in the group, but that's not doing anything in particular for my psychological well being! Last time I went, I think I described group as teasing me - you go to group and are told that you can talk your emotions etc etc, and at the same time I don't want to talk about anything with this bunch of people. Perhaps I should talk more, some people would probably say that I am sabotaging my therapy by not talking - but what percentage of people would want to talk about really difficult issues in front of a load of half-strangers? I'm happy enough talking to my boyfriend, or my old T, isn't that enough? And I'm not there to gain confidence/communication skills etc, I'm fine with that side of things.


> 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".

I've been thinking about starting the CBT while I'm still going to group. As I said in the post above, I'm in free therapy, and I can't afford to pay for anything. There are a few other places I could go, but there are pretty long waiting lists and you never know what you are going to get!

I've got group tomorrow - I'll give you an update afterwards!
