> Also, I've also felt a few times lately that perhaps she is tired of me coming in with the same issues and struggles. She always says, "I can understand how you'd feel that way," and I am tired of that response. I want her to DO something, not just say how she understands how I feel.

Hi LG, I have felt that way-- tired of my own self seeming stuck on the same issues and problems forever, and sure that my T must feel the same. When I ask her about that, she says it isn't true. She seems to have a super-human ability to listen to people complain without getting bored. I don't know how she does it-- but that's why I pay her. She listens to me better than I listen to myself. And she'll also tell me that she doesn't see me as making no progress, that she sees a lot of progress. I'll ask her what progress she sees, and sometimes she'll list a bunch of things, but lately she makes me go through the effort of saying what things seem improved for me. I have a harder time seeing progress, because I can see changes, but my life still isn't quite what I want it to be, so sometimes it feels like no progress has been made at all. Soooo... I guess I'm saying I've gotten a lot of reassurance from discussing these fears with her, and perhaps you might get reassurance from talking about it with your T.
