My new T told me that therapy is likely to bring up bad stuff and make symptoms worse. This he told me on my second ever session with him, referring to my earlier experiences with T.

Your warning is heeded. Yet, once the stuff is out in the open, and the symptoms exacerbated, it's hard to get out of therapy in one piece. I'd settle for 2 pieces, but apparently I'm destined to have multiple different experiences, depending on my moods. Somedays it's okay, and adult-Llurpsie has a handle on her feelings and critical faculties.

Then other days I feel like "scientist Llurpsie" is doing more un-work by trying to analyse the therapist than work on analysing my own stuff. Pity the therapist that cannot handle my own tendency to 1) silent appraisal of the therapist-client relationship 2) eye-brow raising putting on airs that I know more than I do

Then other days I feel utterly wretched, and just whine whine whine and any suggestion the therapist suggests is met with an eager nod, as if agreement will necessesarily make me all better

and then the days where I shake my head and wonder if I'd be better off eating cornnuts (can't remember if I like them or not)
