hi ldf. i've missed you. welcome back.

yeah, i think you're right that i'm avoiding stuff, but i'm avoiding it with the drugs anyway, and when i go to therapy, i have no access to any of the feelings -- maybe not *no* access, but very limited access -- to the feelings we were talking about before. so, it seems kind of pointless to be there until i stop with the drugs.

i guess there's a big part of me that thinks it's pointless anyway. and that's why i'm doing this to myself.

but the money's a real issue. i think some kind of compromise, like people have suggested, is probably wise.

thanks for writing. it's nice to see you here.

> hi crushed. haven't been around here for ages myself. I guess there is not much point going to see her if you're feeling detached from therapy...but... my instinct would be to hang in there and try to reconnect with her and sort it out *with* her instead of away from her. Bummer about the insurance though.
> Of course the obvious therapist line is that you are taking a break to avoid the difficult stuff and you are using the drugs for the same reason. I guess it's most likely true though. There is a risk that you will get so far away from her that you won't feel like going back, even if you are in a state where you need to. good luck, take care.
