there have been large gaps of no therapy due to circumstances. some therapy related posts by this poster on this site discussing some gaps.

for the really broken, the severly damaged and the super fscked up it has taken this long for that to sink in. there is no comparison in trauma depsite obvious differences.

recent (and oft repeated) dialogue from sessions--
zh-like are you sure? like really sure?
T-yes. you endured huge losses and major trauma enough to create the survival functioning you've been living until now.
zh-but what about____? (insert most horrible traumas you can think of here)
T-yes, other endure awful things. doesn't make what you experienced any less awful, any less damaging.
zh-are you sure?

can you see why it has taken a long time to even get here? the fifty minute hour or fifty five minute hour was only scratching the surface for our particular needs.

making the time and fully using that time is full time work. ups and down. lots of doubts. lots.

it was scary going to longer sessions despite knowing it was going to make the difference.
