> Thank you Mystickangaroo and Sid.
> You mention writing something down. I think about the post I have written here. This is the prime example of something that I want my therapist to read yet do not want him to read. I want him to know and I don't want him to know. I obsessively wonder how I should prepare for therapy sessions. My therapist tells me to just come in as I am and share what I have-- but what I have is so scattered. I have thought about bringing written thoughts in to share with him-- maybe I could even read what I have written here. Do you think that would be a good idea? I think it would feel very awkward, as our sessions are interpersonally dynamic. He doesn't write anything down the entire time, but makes eye contact and talks.
> Do you think it would be OK then to write down thoughts-- like what I have here-- and read them to him for 5 min or so? Is that inauthentic? I think it would give us both a better idea of where I am at as opposed to the panicked stuttering.

I think it would be ok to do whatever might be helpful to you. If your therapist has any comments about that, well then you can talk about the why of it. Remember that the therapy is for you, and if something is causing you distress than it is absolutely something to try and get to.
Take good care of yourself,
