Hi Falls,

I disagree with your therapist. Therapy should be about what the patient is comfortable talking about. Not what the therapist is comfortable hearing about.

You are censoring yourself if you can't discuss babble to your therapist when you need to. You are censoring yourself if you don't talk to us about your therapy when you need to.

Falls, put your needs first. Your therapist has to deal with his counter-transference, you should not be forced to tap dance around his issues.

I am certain that my therapist has some pretty major counter-transference going on with her realizing how much my sensory defenses are like her son's. She hasn't said *Poet, you've got to stop talking about it, because it really is getting to me how much you are like my child.* So she is obviously dealing with it and not censoring me. Then again she's probably thrilled that I am doing online research and bringing it in for her to read. And that I'm admitting that this thing seems to fit me.

Anyway, I don't want to rant or rag on your T, it's just that you seem to have so much anxiety over what is his issue. Your issues are what matters in therapy, not his.

Poet
