It just seems like such a waste of time if I'm not "working" on therapy between appointments. But as I write THAT I recall that there have been times when I have spent too much effort on therapy and not enough effort on living. But I do get satisfaction out of figuring something out and being able to report on it the next session. *I* want to come up with some of those great interpretations...

>And falls, just one little thing to pick on, it's okay if your reaction to his reaction feels like it's unkind to you. It's honest. You don't pay him to be kind to him. Of course you also don't pay him to be your whipping boy. But it's good to share your reactions even if they might hurt him. Hmmm, as I write that, I see how it might be related to the criticism transference...you don't want to do that to him...what you experience?

And I did tell him that I was angry even though it felt unkind. It was just difficult - uncomfortable. And yes, I think it is related to the critical transference issue... You are so smart.

So how DO we maintain the intensity while making progress on our own and surviving between sessions?
