I read this book once where the author said that a trait of many depressed people is that they essentially want people who are close to them to be mindreaders. I've seen that in myself. I'll get angry with my husband for seeming so insensitive when really he has no idea when I'm in a bad place and when I'm not. My T frustrates me no end sometimes by the way she finishes my stumbling halting sentences. Or when she might anticipate what I'm about to say. All too often, she's totally wrong and it makes me feel either that she can't possibly be listening that well or that she just doesn't get me. I guess it points to how poorly I communicate.

I'm sure part of my frustration arises from my thought that she knew how upset I'd get so why let that happen to me in isolation.
