I'm sure that's it. During the day he was the good parent I never had and in my dreams, he became the bad parent I feared. Although I went through a period with him where I feared him during the day as well. I actually had this psychotic depression where I had hallucinations of him telling me to die. I would sit in sessions and be terified that he was going to hurt me. Like I say, I don't know how I survived it. I don't know how he survived it.


> Sounds like between sessions, your therapist and the therapy itself was going with you. From what I understand, that's often part of the healing process. I wonder if in the bad dreams, your underlying fears of the therapeutic relationship repeating childhood neglect, abuse, rejection were playing themselves out. What do you think?
