Hi Kerria,
It must be tough and exhausting to struggle with your parts, maybe this new T can focus his work towards getting your parts to let you know what they actually want, and what positive things they might enjoy.

It took me several tries (with a year apart each time!) until I finally understood and liked knitting, nobody gets it perfectly right off the bat. I'd be glad to answer any questions, and a website called knittinghelp.com has little video clips about all of the tecniques you need, I found these really really helpful. I learned out of books because I didn't know anybody who could knit, and it took me a while to find books with good pictures that I could understand. I thought I was just too stupid to pick it up after a while, but once I found good illustrations and good written descriptions, it made more sense. The hardest thing at first was to hold the needles the right way, but that came with practice too. I've made a bunch of sweaters for myself, and alot of gifts. I can babble on about knitting for much too long, Sorry to bore you with it!! For me it kind of saved my life, so I tend to think it'd be good for everybody :)

Do you get the chance to take a break from the trauma sometimes? Like checking out websites about other stuff? I had times when I totally surrounded myself in my trauma, felt like I couldn't get out of it, it was every book I read, every website I looked at, everything I wrote about, but when I started to move away from it just a little bit, even just by reading childrens books sometimes when I couldn't focus on any adult reading, for a few moments a day, it helped my mood a lot.
