T thinks I had an attachment disorder

Posted by Quintal on August 16, 2008, at 11:56:57

That resulted in my difficulty forming relationships with other people. It became clear that that my borderline traits are the main difficulty in social relationships besides anxiety. It's this vacillitating between rage and unworthiness that makes stable relationships difficlut, if not impossible. There is an avoidant subtype of BPD and that is probably the model that fits me best.

She also thinks I might be a psychopath, and this is probably what gives rise to my feelings of detachment from other people. T says this sometimes happens when there has been an insecure attachment to a primary caregiver, and it doesn't make me a bad person. We talked about my lack of trust in other people. I said I trust no one, and can't imagine ever trusting anyone. I think she was hurt to find I'd never trusted her from the beginning. We're half way through my allotted ten sessions, so there's not much chance of me beginning to trust her. Again, we're back to what I want out of therapy and how she can help me, and I don't see how she can. We seem to have hit a dead end.
