I think that maybe the group is a little too intensive to begin with. it seems that it is a hell of a lot to ask that you would acclimate to group therapy, adjust to a whole new set of people, dredge up horrible feelings,and then share them all in the first week!! that is insane and I'm not sure it is even healthy. there is a point at which we may need a gentle push sometimes I think but whoever is leading this group is pushing with a bulldozer. just be really careful man I would hate to see you re-traumatized by something that is supposed to help.
Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee. let me then tow to pieces, while still chasing thee, thou damned whale! Thus, I give up the spear!"
