It is so hard not to think you are becoming a pain in the...neck. I know, I know, it is why I am in therapy.

I don't feel guilty about the money. I'm lucky. My insurance picks up almost all of it, my part is $20/session no matter how much I go because I'm double insured. I feel guilty about spending so much time making it "all about me." I feel guilty about talking about all the bad stuff instead of finding the silver lining in everything. I feel guilty that "we" could end up in a place that surprised even him.

I like what you said Karen, about eating when you are hungry. That makes sense. And I keep telling myself that tomorrow will be about support and coping so I don't have to feel anxious about going too deep again. I told my Therapist today that I *needed* to find my own strength again to deal with all of this but I wasn't sure I ever would. He told me that is what he was for, he'd lend me his until I found mine again. And that he was sure I would again.

I wish I was as sure as he is...
