<<< (((Dinah))), You must know by now that I believe in you, no-matter-what. Please tell me what hurts and why? Is it that you feel misrepresented to? Perhaps, something your therapist says, you find later not to be true, and since you have all this water-under-the-bridge, you desparately want to continue? Or, you care for your therapist inappropriately and want it all to be different? (these are only poor guesses on my part) Please give me a clue.
I want to understand and see your pain for what it is. Indulge me; I can-not feel Y O U R pain directly. The best we can do is for you to describe it to me. I will then connect to something in my life to assume what it means to you.
Please help me through this. You're one of my heros.
