"What is a cord? I never seen one."
My neck of the woods cords is short for cordorouy pants or a measurement for wood. ;) (And perhaps for the spelling impaired too!)
"Have you tried bring the resentment issue up in session."
Yes, over another issue though. I was upset with him because my family doctor had said my latest flair was depression and he hadn't mentioned it. This actually made me suspicious of him, like what else is he hiding. I figure I'm paying him, so I might as well get the whole truth, right? Now he's gone on a diagnosis kick trying to find one that fits me. If I agree with him I argue that I already knew that what am I paying him for and if I don't agree with him I poke insults at his intelligence. Just at the last session I acknowledged to him that I was aware of the fact that I throw these insults at him and I'm working at not doing it. (Maybe I'm not I get pleasure from it, I'm probably a little kid at heart.) Whenever he makes chummy remarks I throw in a poke if I can think of one.
Regarding why anyone would ever want to do this for a living, I had asked my husband this after a couple of sessions. He replied that it is the challenge. Not for me, I would be weeping or ranting more than the client!
