It happens to all of us. A few weeks ago I got really upset with my therapist because he asked me a really triggering question with only a few minutes left in the session. *I* had to say "I don't think we have enough time for this" and I had to take care of myself - which pissed me off! So I yelled at him (OK, I never yell, but...) that *he* needed to take better care around that - and he agreed. I think it is particularly hard when we have something to say and we don't get to it.

It really helps me to write stuff down and take it in. I read him what I write - which is hard for some people - but I read it and then we discuss it. My therapist doesn't do email, so this works. I asked him once if he thought I was hiding behind the words - reading is such a left-brain activity. He said perhaps I need to start with that side but because he lends some safety, I can then work my way over to feeling it with my right brain. I liked this - it frees me up from thinking i'm doing it wrong again.

I hope you don't quit. Once therapy hang-over eases off some, you'll see that you really did some hard work today. Talking about that stuff is always so draining.
