It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

I saw my therapist today and we had discussed several issues that I have been dealing with lately and another old battles is coming back------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well cutting has been crossing my mind lately due to major stressors going on in my life. I am getting ready to make life altering changes. I told me therapist that and she is suggesting that I try DBT in a group setting. I am not comfortable with a group setting. I prefer one on one with the right kind of therapist and that is up north. I am tired of explaining to them about my culture. It gets old after awhile.

I really don't know what to do now. I need support but not with this kind of help.

Well, the way I see it there are two options: take the therapist's opinion and take a leap of faith and try the group for a while


Continue to tell your therapist you're not comfortable with the group setting and continue one on one.

Of course there is a third option... Tell your therapist that DBT is not the only way to deal with cutting. Ask him/her if they can incorporate it into your current therapy, that way you get modes of both. I suggest you and your therapist read the book "Bodily Harm" By Karen Conterio (I think that's how it's spelled). It speaks about different methods of treating cutting behaviors and is not of the DBT streak. You both may want to try it. It can't hurt, right?
