hi, Antiqua.

I think it's actually a major accomplishment to look at an experience and see that you missed someone-- especially such a fraught and conflictual moment-- and one when you were so sure you were going to/and were getting the reaction you expected.

Maybe your pdoc is CBT, but he seems patient, willing to listen, and not insist that he be heard right away-- and-- you know him. He's a person to take a chance with-- while hedging your bets. He's not your T; he's important-- but not that important; you value the relationship, but you have someone else to help you unravel what happens with him.

You're really doing the hard things-- facing the anxiety, living through it, and seeing that maybe there's more hope than you had realized. That's what I'm hoping to do-- but as I can say personally, it's extremely, in a hard-to-capture-way demanding of everything you've got-- it puts you right at the edge of what you're capable of and forces you to grow--

So, congratulations are in order. Remember, it's a process-- and you have to do it again, and again--and it will be hard for quite a while. I'm thinking it does get easier over time...
