> I used to post on this board a lot. In fact, it was a search on transference that brought me to babble in the first place. People seem to post mostly on medication, but on medication, there's no real discussion of the power and importance of therapy. Even in the depths of my depression, it was my therapists who got me help, worried about me, let me sit and cry. As the worst lifted, it was my therapists who taught me skills to cope and talked me through situations which would have derailed me without someone to talk to, including the end of a 37-year relationship.

Hi. What year did you start posting? I left therapy in '12 and didn't post much here after that. I recognize your name though.

It seemed like a lot of people had transference issues that were causing pain. I know they try to spin whatever happens in therapy as just more fodder for therapy, but it seems like getting a painful attachment to a therapist is an adverse event.

Overall though it sounds like your experience with therapy was positive and you feel grateful. Are you still seeing a therapist? Did you get to a point of comfort with the transference?

Did you know this was originally just one board (Medication board)? Then it split into the topic boards. I didn't post on Medication much at all after that. Now it seems like that's becoming the general "lounge" instead of Social. I just don't have a lot to say about particular medications. I'm more interested in talking to other differently-neuroned people about coping, and just being able to understand each other due to similar brain states. It's nice to have some Normals in your life for stability, but sometimes I feel more kinship among other so-called mental patients.
