I will probably dive deeply into the muddle again at any moment, but, before I do, I wanted to say that I have every one of the difficulties which you all wrote about- not to mention quite a few additional ones! Poet, I have had very frightening times when I felt that my needs and longings were far too intense and inappropriate: I was so ashamed of them, and it seemed like quitting and never having to deal with them, and the analyst, would be much safer than trying to stay. But these feelings do tend to come and go, according to how much trust I am able to muster.

I think trust does gradually grow, DaisyM, so that we are gradually more able to reveal the most private things about ourselves. But I, too, experience far more anxiety at this stage than I did earlier. It just seems that my whole life is at stake every time I enter the office! But I do also notice that I am getting stronger and better, although I rapidly forget that when I am in there.

I'm glad to hear that you have a psychoanalytically-oriented therapist, lookdownfish. I am so thankful that I have one, too. Why not keep an open mind about twice a week. I think it has been wonderful in helping me understand more about what is going on in me.
