OK, first of all, if you find it distressing talk to him about it. But, I know I have the same problem, and I think everyone does to a certain extent. Take for instance when you watch "Antique's Roadshow"... The best ones are when the guy ruins a $400,000 collection by pollishing it with Pledge. And you kinda feel bad for the guy, but only a little bit. But is it still "acceptable" to laugh at this chump who ruined an invaluable antique baseball card collection by glueing it together in a frame? Uh, YEAH!

We all have parts of us that are "unacceptable" I suppose one could call them that... I tend to let mine shine when they shouldn't. I laugh when someone falls on the ice (and yes, I ask if they're OK), and I know I'm a horrible person. I guess you could go by the old theory "a time and a place for everything" or you could be like me and just go with it??? But, Dinah, I really doubt there's anything about you that's completely unacceptable. If your therapist feels in his office is a more appropriate place to let those feelings out, then it's better to get them out there then not at all. Maybe you could talk about exposing them to your husband? How does that sound to you? Maybe just a small amount at a time...
