> It sounds like you have some of the same trust issues Poet and I do.
OK even though i take psych im slow, so what type of trust issues do I sound like I have? (Im being serious) I cant figure out why Im so ickied out by therapists...I think its cause they all seem so ..... sweet. you know? im sure I have major trust issues but how can you tell that from what i said :-)?
> I couldn't handle an overly sympathetic therapist either - it would just feel fake to me. Luckily the guy I go to isn't anything like that. In fact, I'm one of the (if not *the) first long term clients he's had.
TOtally fake! Thats awsome you found him
> It took about a year before I could talk about anything more personal than the weather, but even now we just chat about issues and things I need to work on and the emotions don't flow.
sounds like me :-).... um office decor and the traffic getting there...superfictial all the way!
> One time I spent 6 weeks telling him all the rotton things my father did, one after the other, no embelishment, just facts - no repeats. For me saying it unemotionally was cathartic. Tears and sympathy would have gotten in the way.
Thats how I am. I tried to open up once and got such a weird reaction, and then came the oh, thats awful mushy mushy mushy mushy ......and I got lost somewhere in the mush. That prevented any other openings for me. Maybe I really do need to put effort into finding one when/if I look again. Rather than the phone book calling.
