Hi, lgl!

I understand what youíre feeling. I would venture to say your answer could be different given different types of therapy...Iím not sure. Iím in psychodynamic therapy and my T has always made it my responsibility to decide what we talk about (at least to start). Sometimes Iíve begged him to pick the topic. Last time I did that, he started talking about his recent Ebay sales and purchases..."okay smart aleck, I get the point." ;)

Anyway, Iíve been in therapy just over two and a half years. I think I was in crisis management mode for most of the first two years. It wasnít until fairly recently that we began working on deeper stuff. I suppose I needed to trust him. I needed to know that he could handle anything I said and do it in a way that wouldnít hurt me. I needed a deep attachment to him. Ironically, though, it seems to be that attachment that makes it easier for me to be hurt by him, but at least I know we can and will always talk about it. I donít let go of or forget about stuff between us until itís resolved. I wonít let him off the hook that easily. :)

It was kind of strange, I guess. I just got to the point where I decided I didnít want to talk about the day to day stuff anymore. I wanted more out of therapy. That said, the first two years were all part of the process and I wouldnít change anything.

I hope therapy starts to feel more worthwhile for you. If nothing else, I would suggest that you tell her what youíve told us here.

Good luck!

Laurie
