ggg,

don't ever feel obligated to send a b-mail or reply to a post. it's not necessary to apologize...but you're sweet.

You can have all that without ever spiraling out of control, so trying to ease your worries...not that you should not be careful, but just letting you know that those things can be common in pa therapy...if not the meds..i get flashes of 'things' in my periphial vision, often accompanied by extra sensory perception of light and music, for example. which suddenly become more interesting and beautiful, and if i think about those perceptions, it seems like i start exploring if those perceptions have 'meaning', but never progresses to lapse in reality. But that's when it's quiet and more subdued; noise and florescent light hurts...esp. under more stress. i never had those symptoms before pa therapy.

however I want to warn you-those 'history intakes' done by psychoanalytic therapists can be very provoking in ways in which you may be unitially unaware. I had a hallucination before after doing just a history intake/assessment... normally day 1, minute 1, is when therapy starts. There is no simply narrating symptom history..as a general rule though each t has their own style i'm sure...normally though it's much more complex than that and they might address your defense mechanims while interviewing you-and you don't realize it...feel free to b-mail me if you have any questions about that or post on psychology.

Hope the med helps with your ocd...Good move..running while dysphoric. :)
