Don't you love it when you can make your therapist laugh? :)

It is nice to read about good sessions, even though getting closer to her also means getting deeper into yourself. And that can be painful.

My therapist said something interesting to me this week. He said, "a big part of your therapy is for the part of you that needs to learn to trust and allow caring -- and to stay OK with this care-taking instead of freaking out about it. The stories, the trauma, are important. But the utter aloneness and neglect you suffered was just, if not more, damaging. So we use our relationship to work on that." I think you are in a similar place - you work on the trust and the caring -- and then delve into your sadness and old feelings and longings.

All this will be tough but I know you are both up to the task. I've always wanted to ask my therapist, "what's the best session you think we ever had?" I some how doubt it would match mine.
