YOu have nothing to feel ashamed about. Your abuser has, but then abusers rarely seem to feel the shame and regret they deserve to feel. I wonder what type of psychologist you were seeing, as a more practical CBT-oriented therapist dealing directly with your present problems, would be far more useful than one using the outmoded analytical approach of wandering aimlessly around in the past. And do discuss this recent decline with the psychiatrist and seek re-assessment and possible revision of present treatment.
YOu're not a failure --- you were failed. That's different. And you WILL be able to make it in this world.
As Anonamous points out there are many potential reasons, related to the normal process of therapy, that could be becoming difficult between you and your therapist right now --- and they need to be discussed with the therapist, and maybe switching therapist could help., if they are not easily soluble. You are not going crazy.
