"The best part about being with a group is that you don't have to do everything alone.
You're with your friends".
I was over at Paul's blog and he has shared a great exercise he did while in a group session. Groups are one thing that I wanted to be able to experience, but because of being so far away from a town/city big enough to have one, that won't be possible for me.
You see, early on, right after I'd learned that my Colors were alters, I was desperate to see someone else like me. It became an obsession for about a year. I would look into every stranger's face and wonder if he or she was DID. I needed to see someone who was like me. I needed to. I begged my T to find a group for me.
Of course he did, but the group was too far away and too expensive. I don't have insurance so I can't do that kind of out of pocket expense. For at least 2 years, I cried every time I thot about it. I even asked T once, "Where are they? They have to be out there somewhere. Where are they?" I cried until I began to hyperventilate and T suggested I do some NeuroTherapy. So darn embarrassing.
I would still like to experience that, but for now, I will give you this quote from Joan Rivers: (I rewrote it to fit my situation...)
"My posts come out of total unhappiness. My readers are my group therapy."
