> I was a bit upset with myself for the honesty. But he didn't seem upset or anything. I guess he's used to it from me.

Isn't honesty a good thing? Id be willing to bet that your honesty gave him the opportunity to re-experience himself as a competent professional in the midst of great personal uncertainty. I know you say there was more disclosure on his part than might be usual but, as the saying goes, desperate times call for desperate measures.

> I understand any ambivilance people may feel on reading the account of the session. I'm feeling no small amount of ambivilance myself.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean about ambivalence. I read your account of the session as a beautiful moment of connection between two people whose lives have been turned upside down and who can nevertheless find some comfort in maintaining a relationship that has endured for many years. What's not to like?

> It always amazes me that he has such a calming effect on me, no matter what.

I think it's wonderful.
