Thank you so much, as always. I've read your responses throughout the week and you really helped me get through it.

I called my T the night before I wrote my post on here and left her a message. I told her, several times, that I *knew* she wasn't my T anymore and I understood completely if she couldn't call me back, but it would be helpful if I could have a quick conversation with her and hear her voice.

She didn't call me back for 24 hours and then I couldn't take the call. But she left me a message and said this was a hard call for her and the situation "iffy," but she heard that I was in pain and that if I still needed to talk to her I could call her back later that night.

So I did and she worked her magic. I asked her what I am doing wrong that I constantly end up in this situation -- where I'm doing all the work and then getting beaten up for being stressed. She told me this is my growing edge -- that this is where I'm most comfortable because of my family situation (lots of responsibility, taken for granted, beat up on literally and figuratively). She told me I'm definitely recognizing the pattern faster and seeing the need to get out of it, which I didn't used to and that was good, but that I still need to work on finding healthy situations where people don't take advantage of my sense of responsibility and work ethic. So that's what I'm going to try to do next.

And I'm going to start going through the list of Ts she left me to see if I can find someone to work on the cognitive stuff, which my T wouldn't have been able to do anyway.

Thank you again for all the support. I'm sorry I haven't been around much -- I'll try to do better on that score.
