The last couple times he's been more alert so I haven't said anything yet. As far as honesty is concerned ... well, that brings up some interesting issues. I have told him what I find upsetting about him and his attitudes in the past only to find my sessions shortened and the cold shoulder.

And that brings up an interesting issue too ... how much responsibility do we have to our T's? And in what way?

I'm trying hard to not assume that I bore you - but I'm not really sure what to think. I'd like to know what is happening and how we can make it stop."
