Mine seems to rotate among the same few outfits, which used to drive me to distraction. But now it just seems like she's not super concerned with how she looks - and I like that - because I'm usually not super concerned with how I look. She doesn't look un-professional, or anything, just rotates among several ankle-length skirts and slacks. In the summer she's always wearing the same pair of sandals.

I almost wish that she dressed more similarly to me, as if that might strengthen our connection in some way. LOL.

I took my shoes off in session for the first time last week, and sat cross-legged on her couch. I'm the most comfortable when I can sit cross-legged, but I was, for some reason, really nervous when doing so, like maybe I was breaking some kind of taboo. As it happened, I felt really out of it during most of the session, spacey, almost dissociative. At one point my therapist asked me if I could touch the bottom of my feet - to ground myself - and I totally froze. Couldn't move, couldn't think. It was really weird.

OK, enough random associations for now. Interesting thread!
