Gee-- once again it seems I'm in the minority..... though...*blushing*.... I've been told I have quite severe attachment problems.(think that is rare)
I've felt much more comfortable walking in the park with T. than in the office. I get anxiety when attention is on me... in the park there is less attention on me- thus less anxiety. I fear people getting close to me. I don't care for four walls all around me... feels less safe... can't defend myself as easily and so few distractions from me.

> My analyst once mentioned that during his work as chief of psychiatry at Chestnut Lodge, he would often start his work with severely ill patients by walking around the grounds with them. (apparently there were about a hundred acres of fields and meadows then with paths running through them) But he said that, as soon as a patient was able to do it, he wanted them to come to his office, because he felt that the therapy could become more real and effective there.<< ............

--- See I can so understand this^^^^.... if they are safe walking with me then MAYBE they just might be safe to sit in an office with .... maybe.....

I think it's cool you all can feel so safe and "connected".... I dream of that.
..... but now, I MUST keep myself safe and that is what I am always vigilent about.
