I have to say that it is ironic that therapy is supposed to help us live our lives better and yet life sometimes gets in the way of doing good therapy!

What made you panic with your therapist? I've done that, had a panic attack during a session, so I'm curious what you were feeling, (if you don't mind sharing.) Having these different age states can be very frightening, especially if you don't know if your therapist will be accepting of them or not.

I told my therapist today that while we were trying to figure out this adult-to-adult stuff, there was screaming going on in the background from the younger parts of me. There has been a wall around this part since I started taking the medication and those regressive feelings are easier to squash. He said he doesn't want me to squash them, that there is room in his office for all of me and we need to still allow time and space for "her" to talk. But I'm not sure I want her to.

I hope you find the connection again soon.
