Today's session was almost dull.

Which is good I guess, except that I drove eight hours round trip and spent $45 in gas. And left feeling sort of like "Why did I do that?"

We talked mostly about my suicidal feelings. He's more concerned than usual because I've been *doing* things I don't normally do, and because the situation between us is different. Still, it was a very calm tone to the session.

We talked about the possibility of having another therapist in addition to him. He said he didn't think it would be all that helpful to me, that what I was needing was the trusting relationship built up over ten years. I think he's right in a way. Plus... Well, a lot of therapists sort of want to push to change you. And as he laughingly reminded me, it took me a while to train him not to push. I'm not sure another therapist would understand what I need.

I dunno. All the therapists at home are probably up to their ears anyway.

I dunno.
