So I don't like the DBT group I'm in. Well let me rephrase. I like the info I just can't stand one woman. I don't know how to address it but I need to. She's not a terrible person but she dominates, she has an example for everything and when we do introductions it might be - say your name and one thing related to interpersonal communication you are working on.

so most people would say "I'm askye and I'm working on my social phobia."

Whereas this woman would be "My name is X and all my life I've struggled with being a people pleaser and I'm trying to bring more balance to my life and as an example this week I blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah."

and she always has some example or some tie back to her life. Which is fine IF she didn't do it over 5 times in an hour.

I guess I need to email the group leader and just tell her I feel uncomfortable because she's such a dominate personality and it's hard to get a word in edgewise at times and I don't want to participate because I feel like I'll be competing against her or taking up too much time because of how much time she takes.

Or something.
