I just started meeting with a new therapist, and she seems great. She's suggested Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for me, which involves meeting twice a week, once in a group session and once privately, for the duration of 1 year. That seems like a huge commitment to me! I have so much trouble committing to any sort of social activity longterm - I already transfered from one college and dropped out of the other, quit my first real job and am starting to struggle with my current one - because I have pretty extreme social anxiety, and I'm especially terrified of being in a group. When I'm forced to be there when I'm feeling anxious about it, I've been driven into a full panic attack, which is not only scary but embarrassing. I have a bit of an easier time in a one-on-one therapy situation, but I have a hard time staying focused on a conversation for an entire hour without getting panicked and unfocused, and its especially hard when I'm talking about personal things. BUT, I'm going to attempt it... Please help me rest my worries! Has anybody tried DBT? What is it like? What are the group sessions like? Did you struggle with it? Was it helpful? Let me know anything you can, please! Thanks.
