So I went to my therapist today, finally, after about two months, and he seems to think that this is all chemical. When I tried to tell him that I thought maybe there could be some underlying emotional things, issues I have "festering", he basically told me that everyone has these issues, but for those of us with chemical imbalances, the dp and dr gets worse. I'm starting to doubt this though, becuase I have been on medications for eight years and the dp keeps creeping back in, even when i'm otherwise "normal". Any ideas on how to approach the idea of other types of therapy with him? (ie, cognitive behavioral, or looking mroe into the unconcious/whatever?)

Yeah, but Alice was a real bitch.

ANYWAY...You definately need to let your therapist know that his approach isn't working...communication with your therapist is important, and I have a hard time doing this. Even though I get along really well with my therapist, if I don't like what he is saying or his approach i dont' speak up and it just harms our relationship. It is part of my people pleasing thing, and I cant' even get rid of it with him...i think it's time for a new therapist, but I'm afraid that he'll be upset with me (see how lame I am), because I think he thinks we're doing well together and I think we've kind of reached what I can do with him, and I dont' go in there wanting to talk about my issues anymore...I find myself hiding them from him and that is not a good thing.
