To be honest, I couldn't say what stage of therapy I'm in, although I will agree w/whoever said that termination can go on for years. My T says jokingly it can last 10 years!

I've been through ups and downs, transferences, etc., but I go back and forth through the stages when something big comes up. I don't have a series of time where I delved deeply into all the bad stuff; mine is more sporadic than that.

I'd certainly say I was closer to termination than I had been; but recently I've learned that I'm not as close as I thought.

I envy those of you, knowing how difficult it is for you (I wouldn't ever underestimate the pain), that you are able to go through a stage where it all comes forth. It just doesn't work that way for me. I'll have a crisis, and now that I have better coping skills, they don't last as long, but I rarely get to the emotions. Well, not rarely, I tend to deal with it more head on now, at least with my T. My pdoc is a whole other story.
