I'm not sure when. Maybe 2007? 2008? I don't think of transference as a painful event. It was a necessary experience for me, who never experienced parenting and though it was painful, it did get better, I still see the psychiatrist to whom I felt so attached every 5-6 weeks, just to check in and because he has been so important to my life and helpful to me. I see a DBT therapist once a month to reinforce how to cope when the depression recurs, as it does every so often.

> 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.
