B2chica,
Sweetie, I'm glad you gave that to your T. When is your next session? Friday, I'm guessing? I think you are right about the fear, that perhaps you have been living with it all along, but now that you have an opening into it, you are much more aware. I'm sorry you are so scared. I know that feeling is just awful. And I also think that maybe you are right, the numbness may be protecting you. But if it feels too bad, either direction, please call your T. Even if it's to say, I need help now, rather than talking about it over the phone.

Can you think of a place that feels safe to you? Maybe somewhere from the past, or somewhere now? For me it's my bedroom. It has sloped ceilings on either side of the bed, so it's very cozy. I love my bedding because it's a soothing green and blue. I have books, water, light, and lots of pillows. I can look out of the window and see the house of a good friend.

If you have a place like this, and it could be anywhere...a secluded beach, a cabin, on an island, somewhere you imagine, etc., try to visualize it. Really see all of the details of the room or the place. Try to feel what the air feels like. What do you smell? How does it feel if you touch it? The more senses you can get involved in your imagination, the more you can really "go there" in your mind. While you are there, you are safe. You can and just breathe, and just be.

Take gentle care, dear.
