Hi Fairywings,

Anger is one of the few things I can feel. I don't think being angry in therapy makes someone look heartless and cold. It's a genuine feeling. It's real.

My T is trying to get me to not turn my sensory defensiveness into anger. I am supposed to explain to people that I need time alone and don't like to be touched. Personally I prefer that I stormed out of my water aerobics class when the instructor told us to all form a circle and hold hands. I suppose I could have not said I don't do this (bad word) (another bad word) outloud, but I did. I am supposed to let the instructor know that I don't like to touch people or be touched and that I would prefer to not participate in group activities. Fat chance. The angry kid in me likes to be heard, though she really has a potty mouth. Got to work on that one. Fat chance.

Anyway, feel that anger. Talk to your therapist about it. Why are you angry? Who are you angry at? Who are you really angry at? That's therapy. At least for me.
