Well, I have just discontinued therapy with a T that I had been seeing for many, MANY years, and I'm a slow learner, I guess, because it took me this long to heal. I'm ready to leave my T (but I still have a psychiatrist that i'm working with, but on different issues) and I'm O.K. leaving her. She has been great to me; taught me how to be a good mother; and helped me through understanding a destructive, awful past that I couldn't even remember when I first started.

The best part of all this is that this last year was groundbreaking for me in therapy. I learned more in the last year than I learned in many years before, so I dont' regret the years I spent with this one T at all. She was patient, kind, and willing to stick by me and help me understand. I could write a book about what we've been through together, but the point is that it is only now that I am ready to leave.

It feels great, too, but I'm also lucky in that I can call her if I need to, but now when something painful occurs, I do think of what she would advise and I carry through on my own. Very different from having a friend. My friendships have been solid throughout the years, too.
