Sometimes we do need to shut it down for a bit, to give it a rest so we can protect ourselves, even if you're like me, pushing that therapy as hard as you can because you (we) are desperate to get better. Sometimes we're moving too fast and are flooded with emotions that we can't sort out yet, so yes, maybe you should give it a break. As my pdoc says, it will come back around and you will be stronger to deal with it.

I'm going to lecture you here. You are not a drain on your T. He's not impatiently waiting for you to finish so that he can fill your seat. Your job isn't done yet. My pdoc recently told me emphatically that he didn't think I was done yet when I tried to quit, and just knowing he wasn't trying to fill my slot was huge, given as I've mentioned, that he doesn't believe in long-term therapy. I think I've changed his mind. :)

I think what's different is that you feel he's pushing and challenging you a bit more than in the past and you're finding this hurtful. But for whatever reasons you're feeling this way, this doesn't change the relationship between the two of you that you've worked so hard to built. It may be shifting, and you're moving into a new area, but I don't think he's asking you to be the perfect Daisy you think. You're taking it that way because it's hurting little Daisy, but try to speak up, or let her tell him why this is so hurtful.

please take care,
antigua
