> It was kind of strange, I guess. I just got to the point where I decided I didn’t 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 wouldn’t change anything.

>>>> Hi Laurie,
Thanks for sharing your experience with me. I'm a few months past the 2 year mark, so hearing that you had a similar "start" is helpful. She is psychodynamic and does wait for me to start and I also have control over what we talk about. Actually when we walk in the room and sit down, I always have to be the first to say something! (She'll look at me with a warm smile, but not say anything.) LOL, sometimes I sit there for a second stupified thinking what my first line will be!

Usually her "approach" doesn't bother me. There has been so much going on in my day to day life as well as the recent major change at work, so I don't mind talking about that stuff, but I know there are underlying things that I can never seem to get to. Sometimes I feel like the day to day stuff consumes my time with her, or else I just forget. Dissociation is a problem.

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

>>>>Thanks! I actually emailed her when I got home last week and told her I was annoyed and why. I asked if there was supposed to be any continuity and whose responsibility is it. She said she was interested in hearing about my being annoyed and feels that since we are in this together, some of the annoyance belongs to her... something like that... and that we would talk about it next time.

So, we'll see; I go tonight and am not really in the mood.
