It's probably generally true about my therapist. Sigh.

The more I think about what I'm feeling, the more I recognize that a lot of my actions lately have been as much about his looking sleepy and droopy eyed as they are about anything else. I admit I'm also bored myself, but it's possible that my boredom has as much to do with the energy he's bringing to the room as anything else.

He's even interrupted me a few times, not only when I was talking about the emetophobia, but some other time I can't now recall, to ask totally meaningless questions that he uses to fill time. Or once, even, something about a totally off topic thing he'd read.

I think he ought to be doing a bit of self examination about his own countertransference right now. But he won't, so I must.

How are you dealing with your therapist's tendency to talk about himself?
