> There are times in therapy when I just can't talk. I can hear him talking, and I want to respond, but something feels like it's keeping my mouth closed and my tongue heavy. I can't even open my eyes although I work all the eye opening muscles as hard as I can.
This might sound obviously dumb, but can you make a mmmmm sound? Not like a yum yum sound, but like the sort of sound you'd make if you were gagged. I would imagine that it might be possible still with a closed mouth and heavy tongue. Although you may need to explain beforehand that that is what it means.
And also beforehand perhaps discuss what he can do to help you when you're like this.
