> It is good to hear that it *is* possible to talk about all of this during sessions. Today I spent a lot of time on it but the previous two sessions I did a "drive by" - mentioned it at the end of the session, talked for about 5 minute and fled.

Well, it's important to get an appetizer before you commit to a whole discussion. Don't be so hard on yourself!

> My therapist has never complimented me on my looks - even as we talk about attractiveness now. I'm not sure how I'd take it. It makes me wonder if a client really is attractive if it is more OK to say? I don't know, I'm so sensitive right now.

I remember my 2nd session with currenT well. We were going over a list of my maladies and I said I had low self-esteem and poor body image and he looked at me and said "you don't think you're pretty?" OMG. I just about died. How the hell is one supposed to answer that question? Um, you brand-newT, I DON'T think I'm pretty. thank you for making this very very awkward.

> The gaining and losing and gaining again cycle stinks. And yes, we all know we should exercise. Do you make faces at him for that? I would.

oh HELL yes! I even groan. I tell him it's really easy to exercise when one isn't depressed.
