Thanks for slogging through all that to be able to answer. I really just spilled my thoughts.
Don't know what my problem is lately. Still adjusting to a new person, and on the surface, think I have a "handle" on it. Yeah, right.
Liked your words about forcing depth. A lot. Made me think I may be unconsciously looking for a bit of the atmosphere that I used to have with old T. I miss it so much sometimes. That could be part of the reason I feel so pressured to tell all, right now. Like magic will happen.
Thanks for getting me to think some more. I know about holding back forever. I sure used to do that, too. Now the "gates" have been open a while, both old and new Ts probably wanted me to just *stop* at times. But it depends on the topic, of course.
As you said, if I follow my instincts as I usually do, it'll work out. Therapy just feels so odd lately.
