> I'm sorry things have been hard...are the tears in your dreams in your life too? I hope the chocolate and movies help, what did you rent?

Real life tears. I'm starting to feel a little better. I made Chocolate Bread Pudding for dinner - hey, it has milk and bread in it... One good movie: Follow the Stars Home - One very bad (so bad it was kind of funny) movie: Hackers.

> I said it in another post but I think January is the month that we all come apart after holding it so tightly together for December. Or maybe seeing family brings it all up to the surface and our Therapist know this and want to pull it out...Are you still surprised by issues that come up? Or are they "new" about what is going on right now?

This one was a variation on what I see in therapy. A Theraputic Opportunity. Oh Joy. I think it will end up being a learning experience. I just hope the depression doesn't last very long.

> I'm curious, when you "run head long into" something, do you keep at it for the next few sessions? I'm thinking about letting the current issue we are working on float away for awhile, it is just too hard and painful. I'm actually floored by how hard it is, given what else is on my list. This is such a weird process...like connecting the dots blind with someone giving you oral directions. And not knowing what you are trying to draw in the first place.

I worked for a couple of weeks in a row on the issue of my last therapist (twice a week). But then Xmas happened, and we had to table it so I could make it through the holiday. I was about ready to go back to it - but now I need to process this first.

Yes, these things can be very hard. I had to let the issue with my therapist wait for about 5 months before I could work on it. I'm counting on things actually getting better, so I don't have to do this forever...

> Keep well. I think trying to close early is funny. He probably needed to go home and clean his house anyway. *smile*

If you need to take a break, you should do it. You'll go back to that issue - you won't stay away from it forever. I think we need to maintain some semblance of a normal life (well, OK, an abnormal life...) - too much therapy stress can be a bad thing. When I'm so stressed that I don't want to see my kids, I know it is too much. Don't think of it as copping out - think of it as regrouping. Clearly what you have been working on is extraordinarily hard.

Chocolate, movies and no kids was good today. Tomorrow should be a little better.
