on the couch...

Got mail today that my therapist is closing her office in February. She'll help us transition to someone else and I know here recommendation is going to be someone with whom I can work well. Or, maybe she'll tell me that I don't need much more...

The letter was carefully and thoughtfully worded--that's for sure, and it makes me comfortable to know this wasn't an easy decision for her to make.

Group has helped me so much, helped me learn how to process and how to have difficult conversations--I've become much more open with my family, with my friends and with myself.

It should be very interesting to see how the next couple of months unfold--to see how dynamics of group and how my own therapy unfolds. Having taken a couple of proactive steps makes me feel much more confident and comfortable during these transitions.

What if this is as good as it gets?

I know my experience is not yours, but my group (30 years ago) made a huge difference in my life. I was not sorry to move on, even though I wasn't completely ready. I was very glad to move on, though, thinking about my therapist's confidence in my ability to do so. Since then (and hard won this is!), I move on whether I'm ready or not and then learn to deal with it.
I still count things (especially stairs - but surely that's a safety issue!) and I still have rituals I MUST use. . .but I do these things and move on. Eventually.
I'll be interested to hear how this works for you.

I am so very proud of you, honey. Just when I think I can't be any more in awe of you, you prove me wrong. You're an inspiration. Love you!
