>>And Im especially glad he was kind

I agree with Tamar. Kindness is everything sometimes...okay, most of the time (for me). It can overcome and ease up a lot of other, confusing stuff that might be going on at the same time.

I haven't been posting much (long story) but I read a lot, and ALWAYS follow your stuff, FW. I was so worried you'd feel the need to start over -again, with finding another T., or worse, you might stuff all your pain away again, and I didn't want that stress for you.

I think it's so great you had the courage to follow through and give him the note and talk openly about what he said. That can be incredibly scary - but does get easier with practive. I usually can bring myself to do this in my therapy, and I'd say 99% of the time it's been the right thing. You know, leading to a release of the worry and stress about the T. himself - what he *really* means and so forth. This was a biggie, considering the subject matter of your father's behavior, etc.

These sound a lot like T./client growing pains, and and though they hurt and are worrisome, they are ultimately necessary and OK. That's my theory. You are doing hard stuff, FW - good for you!
