ep.25 "I was @ Ariana Grande’s concert (there was a terrorist attack) & now suffer from severe PTSD"
Audience Questions 1. I was wondering how therapists decide it’s time to stop therapy. Is there a point you decide that they’re either fully recovered, or no longer benefiting from therapy, and then tell the client they don’t need... 2. Do you get tired of hearing the "same" stories/issues over and over again? I imagine it feels almost like solving and answering a certain type of math question over and over and over again... 3. Hi Kati, I have been struggling with becoming overly attached to female teachers/ other school staff for a few years now. I often find myself fantasizing about experiencing a traumatic event like being raped or experiencing a murder. I think it’s because I crave their attention and care but don't know how to get it to the level that... 4. How do you deal with the grief that comes with losing people? (not necessarily by death, I mean yes sure but also rejection, neglect, friendships drifting apart and... 5. Why do I feel like I always need to have control over everything? I panic and get super triggered and overwhelmed (like I would cry and have actual meltdowns) when I’m unsure of something when I FORGET when I have to wait for something when... 6.

I haven’t really had the best support system after it, my relationship with my parents is the worst it has... 7. Is there anything better not shared with a therapist.

Recently I have been creating "false memories". I am convinced I have had conversations with people that apparently never happened, but it seems... 9. When is the line crossed between being helpful to your parents and being a parentified child? As a daughter of immigrant parents, I was often told to make calls regarding insurance or the internet and complete a lot of “adult” responsibilities... 10. I am thinking about reporting my father for the sexual abuse in my childhood because I am afraid he might abuse other children too, now that I got to know he is dating women that have young children. I never wanted to report him before because I just don't want to see him ever again and I am afraid of how it will affect the rest of my family (nobody knows about the abuse)... 11. How can people, especially therapists (because they are always against suicide in my experience) not understand that death can sometimes be a rational decision that should be accepted?
