> I am writing for a couple reasons, mostly because I think about my T ALL the time between sessions and just LOVE her so so so much -- yet I am totally unemotional in session so she probably has no idea I am feeling this way...or does she?

I'm getting the impression that you want to express your affection for her. Do you feel romantic towards her, or do you want to show your appreciation for what she has done for you? If the latter is the answer to my question, then perhaps in your next session you can make a point to tell her that you really appreciate what she has done and is doing for you. Or, you could always try the card thing.

> Also, how have others approached the issue of abuse (sexual or physical). How do I just launch into it?

You could bring up discipline or the idea of having children. Then make some comment about how you wouldn't discipline your children in the same way you were disciplined. That is sure to have the follow up question: How were you disciplined? Then you can go into details. If that doesn't work for you, some variation might.
Or, you could just come right out and say, "I've been thinking about my childhood, and I'm curious as to what you think normal, acceptable discipline is for children." That's pretty open. Hope this helps you a little bit! :)
