> Hmmm... Therapy doesn't help everyone. How were you functioning before therapy?

I think I was less introspective and had less feelings of intense sadness and emptiness.

> And feeling empty raises the question of whether it's therapy itself or this therapist. Maybe you want something more from therapy than she's giving you.

Yeah, that is an issue. I am having a hard time being told what I already know, Im realizing he is very textbook oriented and There was a time I made a comment about my lack of connectedness and how it seemed unusual to me, in particular from reading here, and he said that therapy realtionships aren't as deep as I thought. hmm, I KNOW That isn't true.
And the worst part is I feel one step ahead of him sometimes. I don't know how to explain that...

> Are you feeling like "Is this it? Is this as good help as I can get? I felt better when therapy was an option that I could hold in reserve for when I really felt bad. And now I've tried it and I no longer have that option in reserve."

Well maybe, I go there and feel like its such a waste of money unless Im upset. But then I go in sometimes feeling fine adn walking out the door feeling like the life has been sucked from me.

> Or is it more that therapy is stirring up bad feelings that you'd just as soon keep quietly below the surface?

And this too.

> Do you feel frustrated, sad, enraged?

Yes, not so much enraged but sad and frustrated.
