Annie,

I've tried to imagine double sessions. Sometimes I think it would be great, because I get warmed up and have a lot to say. But often I think I could get really fragmented or emotionally overwrought if it went that long. I guess because we settle in so quickly now and get right to work.

I am journaling a lot. He wants me to bring it when I'm ready. We talked about journaling on Wed. I asked if he expected me to eventually give up bringing in pages and reading them. He said if he thought I was using them as a shield, he would try to get me to put them away and just talk. But since we use them to start conversations and I write in a brutally open and honest way, he likes having these jumping off points. He said it really lets him see what I was thinking or feeling, especially in the middle of the night. So I'll keep writing, it really helps me.

I'll be at a baseball game on Monday night. Should be fun. We are in the skybox. :)
