>>>So, I accomplished my goal today. I didn't leave the session more unhappy than when I went in. I'll take small accomplishments

<<<It is so nice to have our goals met! Especially right before the weekend. You deserve to have a good session, especially one that gives you so much to think about and work with.

Anger is a hard emotion to figure out. So many people say that anger is just a way of masking sorrow and hurt. Other people think we hid anger under our depression and hurt. How do we sort this out?

I don't like people angry with me, and I rarely get angry with people (husbands and children aside). I get angry with situations frequently. Still, I'm careful about showing my anger.

My Therapist asked me today if I felt upset with him would I tell him? I said I wasn't sure I would recognize it, I typically turn those feelings around to own them...I'm upset with myself for feeling upset with you...etc.

I will be interested to see what conclusions you reach about this. I don't, however, think you fall apart to get sympathy or get taken care of. You are in too much pain and are working too hard to keep this going "on purpose."

I'm glad he cares and you can feel it.

I care too. I hope you feel that as well.
Go, Go Fallsfall!
